Although they’ve been performing together for over five years as multi-instrumentalists, it was July 2005 that saw Paul, Peter, Billy and Ross don suits and become Gary, Jason, Mark and Howard.
Hailing from all corners of the industry, the individual performers who make up Re-Take That each bring their own unique qualities. Playing at sold-out venues to audiences of hundreds, Re-Take That has enjoyed phenomenal success to date, having secured a loyal following. “We have a great time touring all over Europe. The chemistry we have on and off stage is paramount to the success of Re-Take That. We have a ball!” More than simply a band, the Re-Take That experience is multi-faceted, combining huge personalities, vocals, dance routines, costumes and a spectacular light show. “We wanted to create a show so professional and accurate that if Take That themselves came to see it, they’d say, ‘wow!’”
Re-Take That, now recognised as what Bjorn again is to ABBA and Bootleg Beatles are to the Fab Four, is currently creating a theatre production which will be comparable to the real Take That’s Circus and Progress Live Tour. “ Our aim is to create the biggest and best show possible, whilst staying true to the feel of Take That. We want our audiences to experience the same emotions as they did during the real Take That concerts in the summer of 2009 and 2011. The ability to recreate the intangible aspects, and capture the very essence of Take That has put us where we are today. Our vision and ambition is what drives us forward to be the greatest tribute show of all time.”
“The Re-Take That gig was phenomenal! If you only see one tribute act this year, make sure it’s this one.”
‘’Wow, these guys are awesome - the attention to detail is astounding.’’
At last: the ego has landed! After a high-profile media campaign, months of auditions and countless miles of driving around the country, Re-Take That has at last found its Robbie! Thanks to his charisma, attitude and looks – not to mention his talent – Peter O finally joins the line up on Saturday October 8th as Robbie. Those of you with tickets for Rainton Meadows Arena are in for the night of your lives as the entire Re-Take That experience shoots up a notch. Not only does the evening promise to launch Robbie in spectacular style but the stage show itself has been revamped to bring it bang-up-to-date.
Wow!!! Peter O has taken the UK by Storm, the past year has been amazing, and although the real Robbie Williams is getting ready to launch his solo career Peter O, in a recent interview pledged his loyalty to Re-Take That. '' I'm loving performing with the guys.... I'm not going anywhere''. All five members are currently working on their 2011 christmas show, which promises to be the best xmas yet!!!
Keep logging on for updates!
Peter O (Robbie)
Performing is in Peter’s blood! He has always had a passion for music and performing; since leaving school at 16 and touring the UK and Europe with a rock band as a drummer, he has constantly been in the limelight. Peter made a name for himself as front-man of G Men before moving on to grace the stage with the Brat Pack. Multi-talented Peter proved his worth during his years in the theatre which involved production work with tribute acts and while some may recognise him from his modelling days, most will know Peter as a former member of vocal harmony group the Boyz. Re-Take That is delighted to welcome Peter to the line-up and, as a down-to-earth, mischievous cheeky-chappie, he promises to bring some authentic Robbie-style spice to the whole experience!
Appearing regularly at the Sunderland Empire as a child and later graduating with honours from the Kathleen Davis Stage School and College, Re-Take That’s choreographer Ross was always going to have a career on stage. Ross made his name working for Pontin’s Holiday Parks as choreographer to the entertainment staff, before spending time touring with a live band. On joining the Re-Take That line-up playing the role of Jason, Ross immediately tackled the challenge of mixing some of Take That’s trademark moves with his own style to create the dance routines that are so fundamental to making the Re-Take That experience what it is.
Before stepping into the role as Mark Owen in the Re-Take That line-up, Billy was recognised as a major force on the music scene, fronting his own touring rock show for many years. His success stems from his passion for singing from an early age, when he starred in touring shows supporting acts such as 5ive, Chesney Hawkes and Dodgy. A spell as a model ensured that Billy’s face was well recognised and, as a result of years performing with clubland favourite Foxx and then leading the Billy Black Band, Billy’s reputation as the ultimate all-round professional artist has been well-earned. From headlining major rock events to playing the role of Danny Zucko in Flamingo Land’s ‘Grease the Musical’, Billy deservedly has a following of his own. His versatility as a performer is unrivalled.
Musical Director Peter began composing at the age of 16, producing musical scores for theatre productions. At 17 he won the prestigious Yamaha Music Award and has been writing and recording ever since. As a youngster, Peter was frequently on stage as a member of numerous theatre groups; writing music for these productions allowed him to combine his passion for both writing and performing. Peter is currently working on his debut album, the writing of which he juggles with the heavy schedule of touring with Re-Take That as Howard.
At the forefront of Re-Take That is Paul. As a child, Paul was always to be found performing, whether acting or singing; confident, gregarious and a natural performer, it was inevitable that he would pursue a career in the spotlight. By age 10 he was an established performer and by 16 was touring the UK and Europe with a successful production company. More recently, Paul has been responsible for the production and direction of some of the UK’s most successful touring acts, as well as fronting numerous stage shows and performing in prominent venues all over the world, from the Mediterranean to the Middle East. As the outfit’s strategic manager, responsible for the direction of the Re-Take That experience, it is apt that Paul should adopt the role of Gary.
