Take That at London’s O2 Arena: timings, tickets and everything you need to know

If your idea of a very nice day (or night) out is watching a veteran boyband dust off their choreography, belt out their biggest hits and sport matching all-pink suits, you’re in luck – Take That have officially returned to arenas around the UK

Following the release of their ninth studio album This Life, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald (sorry, no Jason or Robbie this time) have kicked off their UK and Ireland tour. Having already stopped by Sheffield, Leeds and Dublin, they’ll be playing a very generous six nights at the O2 here in London.

Take That will be putting on shows at the O2 on Thursday April 25, Friday April 26, Saturday April 27, Sunday April 28, Tuesday April 30 and Wednesday May 1.
