Take That - Take That Kick Off Progress Live Tour

Take That kicked off their Progress Live 2011 tour in spectacular fashion last night (27.05.11).

The 'Never Forget' group opened their European tour at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland, Northern England, with a huge stage set including an 18 metre tall bionic man prop, acrobats and stage performers climbing a towering wall of water.

The band initially appearing as a quartet with Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald performing 'Rule The World', 'Greatest Day', 'Hold Up A Light', 'Patience' and 'Shine'.

Returning member of the group Robbie Williams then appeared to perform a selection of his solo hits including 'Let Me Entertain You', 'Rock DJ', and 'Angels'.

The full five piece group were then reunited onstage to play their first full set in 15 years.

Robbie told the crowd: "20 years in the making, 15 years in the waiting, five years deliberating. Ladies and gentlemen, the That That show. I'm very proud to be a part of it all again."

The band then performed a selection of classic tracks from their 90s period including 'Million Love Songs', 'Babe', 'Everything Changes' and 'Back For Good'.

The stage production reportedly cost £15 million to produce and featured 31 performers and nine costume changes for the band.
