Take That / June and July 2009 UK Stadium Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 28th October 2008 at 6:54 pm
 

Times seem to be hard, as the number of tours and shows being announced at the moment seems to have dwindled rather a lot in the past week or so. Scary stuff, but hopefully times will pick up soon.

Meanwhile one band that almost certainly won’t be feeling the pinch is Take That who have just announced a sizeable tour of stadiums next summer. Called “The Circus – Live”, it reportedly “promises to be the bands most visually dramatic, diverse and exhilarating tour yet”, and is named after their new album, “The Circus”, which is out on 1st December.

So that should keep some screaming mums busy for the summer months!

Tickets are priced between £45 and £55 each and are on sale on Friday (31st October) at 9am.
