Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen will perform an intimate gig at the Hard Rock Café in Festival City on October 31, a day after their huge concert at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

“We wanted to make the first and only Middle East visit by Take That a regional celebration for their many fans and the sales for the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre October 30th concert have been very strong,” said Thomas Ovesen, COO of Done Events.

“Adding an evening with the band in a more intimate setting is just amazing and we cannot wait to share this experience with the few hundred lucky fans.”

It’s no surprise the boys are in high-demand in Dubai. The band’s latest album, III, became their sixth No 1 record – and the most pre-ordered album in Amazon UK history – while their recent UK tour sold out in true Take That style, within minutes. An upcoming European tour is looking to be similarly successful, while advance tickets for the Media City Amphitheatre gig flew off the shelves.

The Hard Rock Cafe concert – in support of the venue’s breast cancer awareness events – should fit a snug 700 fans. Those who registered for advanced ticket sales for the band’s first show will get a special ticket link to buy tickets when sales begin this week. If tickets haven’t sold out by Thursday, a general sale will go up to all fans.
