‘Have a little patience,’ they said.

Now, finally, we can reveal that the UK’s most successful boy band in chart history, Take That, is bringing their ‘Take That Live 2015’ tour to Dubai later this year.

While this will be their ninth concert tour as a band, this will be their first as a trio, heading to Dubai for a spectacular one-off exclusive concert to be held at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on October 30.

Formed in 1990, the boy band originally featured a five-man line up and currently they have reformed as a trio minus Robbie Williams and Jason Orange.

Take That enjoyed enormous success, reaching No 1 with eight studio albums and selling more than 30 million copies. In total, the band has had 15 tracks top the charts and played to over seven million people around the world.

‘We’ve always been very proud of our live shows and are very excited about performing in Dubai for the first time. Playing live is something we love the most about what we do and we’re looking forward to putting on the most amazing show we can. We hope to see you there,’ said the boys in a statement earlier this morning.

Gary will be on familiar territory as he played a solo gig at the same venue last October to around 9,000 adoring fans.

The tour follows the release of the album III; the lead single from their latest album went to No 1 on the UK Singles Charts in November forming part of a set list, which will mostly draw on their original material post 2006.

For this concert, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen are set to take to the stage in similar colourful fashion as their other tours around the world, which have included everything from aerialists, circus performers, a wall of water, holograms, a giant elephant and even a 60ft walking robot.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Sunday August 30 and will be available from doneevents.com and all Virgin Mega stores. Take That fans who have already pre-registered for tickets can buy theirs from Tuesday August 25.
