Take That have added two more shows to 'This Life On Tour', in Birmingham and Manchester, due to phenomenal demand.

The pop trio - comprising Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - will play a sixth show at Birmingham Utilita Arena on May 20, 2024, and a seventh show at Manchester’s Co-Op Live on June 12, 2024.

This means the 'Shine' hitmakers will now play 41 dates across 15 cities around the UK and Ireland, with special guest Olly Murs.

Tickets for these shows go on sale on Friday (06.10.23) at 9.30am. Head to TakeThat.com for the full tour dates.

The band recently returned with a fresh new sound on the single 'Windows', their first original track in five years, which is from their upcoming LP 'This Life', out on November 24.

They said: “It’s been a wonderful experience being back in the studio together making this record. It has that feeling of spreading your wings, letting out the old and bringing in the new.

"We’re incredibly proud of the new album - there’s a sense of togetherness, whether that’s us coming back together as a band or people wanting connection in their own lives. We’re excited for this new chapter!”

Take That will kick off the mammoth run in Sheffield with two gigs at the Utilita Arena on April 13 and 14.

Asked how they prepare for tours these days, Gary, 52, recently told The Daily Mirror newspaper: “Move and get outside – that’s what my dad used to say. I’ve tried ­everything, I really have. I come from a generation that works out when we’re overweight, but I don’t think like that anymore.

"We set aside six to eight weeks before the tour starts for rehearsals – that is our workout for what’s coming."
