Take That have announced their return down under with a huge live tour set for October and November 2024. Take That’s This Life On Tour will see the trio – Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – take in seven dates across Australia and New Zealand, visiting a series of arenas and spectacular a day on the green wineries along the way.

Fans will undoubtedly rejoice as the band returns to New Zealand for their first shows since 2017, and with fellow pop icon Sophie Ellis-Bextor joining the tour as a very special guest on all dates.

“We are so looking forward to coming back to Australia and New Zealand later this year, our first live shows over there since 2017! And we are honoured that Sophie Ellis-Bextor will be joining us. It’s going to be great to see everyone again and perform the songs from our new album This Life, as well as all the favourites, and a few surprises! We can’t wait…see you all soon”, said Take That.

Take That are renowned for their huge productions and incredible live shows, and currently hold the record for the most performances at London’s The O2 with a stunning 34 headline shows. Released last year, Take That’s ninth studio album, This Life, is a vibrant body of work, which stormed to No.1 on the UK’s Official Charts and was the biggest selling album from a UK artist in 2023, outselling the whole Top 25 combined.

Following the renaissance of her early-2000's hit ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’, pop legend Sophie Ellis-Bextor will join Take That on their Australia and New Zealand tour. With her hit single in the spotlight once again, racing up the charts following its inclusion in the epic final scene of much talked about film Saltburn, the track was last month covered by Australia’s own Royel Otis for triple j’s Like A Version, and will be released on limited edition 7” red vinyl for the first time on 16 February.

In the exact words of the law "The licensee or a manager of any licensed premises who allows an intoxicated person to be or remain on the licensed premises commits an offence". This is not something we want to happen, so help us out and ease off the drink.
