Re-Take That: Recreating the Magic of Take That
Take That, the iconic British boy band, captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide during their reign in the 1990s. The group's original lineup consisted of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, and Robbie Williams, and they produced hit after hit, including "Back for Good," "Pray," and "Never Forget."
After a successful run in the 90s, the band parted ways in 1996, leaving fans devastated. However, they made a comeback in 2005, and their reunion tour was a huge success, with the band playing to over half a million people in just one summer.
Since then, Take That has continued to produce chart-topping hits, and their live shows remain hugely popular. They have won numerous awards, including eight BRIT Awards and three Ivor Novello Awards, and have sold over 45 million records worldwide.
But for those who missed out on seeing Take That during their prime, there is still hope. Re-Take That, the UK's favourite tribute act, offers fans the chance to relive the magic of Take That's music and performances.
Re-Take That was founded in 2007, with the aim of bringing the energy and excitement of a Take That concert to audiences across the UK and beyond. Their first performance took place at the Roker Hotel in Sunderland, and according to founder member Pete, "the place went mental." Since then, the band has played over 100 shows a year, to audiences of up to 30,000 at the Sunderland Airshow, theatre tours, UK tours, and large-scale shows combined, playing to nearly 750,000 people in total.
The success of Re-Take That is due in no small part to their attention to detail. The band members are all huge Take That fans, and they work hard to recreate the sound, look, and feel of a Take That concert. They wear the same costumes, perform the same dance routines, and use the same lighting and effects to create a truly immersive experience. And with song lyrics displayed on screen, fans can sing along to all of their favourite hits.
The show is not just a tribute to Take That's music, but also to the band members themselves. Re-Take That is made up of five talented performers who each embody one of the original band members. They even have their own "Robbie Live!", who performs all of Robbie Williams' greatest hits, from "Let Me Entertain You" to "Angels."
Audiences have been blown away by the quality of Re-Take That's performances. Take That member Jason Orange said of the band, "Just like watching my mates on stage, brilliant!... The attention to detail is amazing!" And Take That lead guitarist Milton McDonald added, "It's great to see how much care and attention these guys have put into recreating the live Take That experience." Even Declan Donnelly of Ant and Dec fame has said, "The best Take That tribute act you'll ever see. They've got talent."
The success of Re-Take That is a testament to the enduring popularity of Take That and their music. Take That has cemented their status as one of the greatest boy bands of all time, and their legacy continues to inspire new generations of fans. And with Re-Take That, fans can experience the magic of Take That's music and performances once again.
So come and join Re-Take That and their loyal following of fans for a massive night to remember. It's a serious business being the UK's No. 1 Take That Tribute Band, but it's also a lot of FUN!
