TAKE That have announced details of a 14-date summer stadium tour around the UK, including four nights at London’s Wembley Stadium in July 2011.

Speaking at a press conference in London on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, Gary, Howard, Jason, Mark and newly reunited Robbie confirmed that they will hit the road next year on the Progress Live 2011 tour.

The dates mark the band’s biggest tour yet and will be the first time they have toured together as a five-piece since 1995.

Progress Live 2011 promises to be a feast for the imagination, charting the evolution and progress of Take That and Robbie Williams through their extraordinary 20-year history.

The spectacular live shows will celebrate Take That’s biggest hits from the last two decades and will also see Robbie take to the stage to perform songs from his incredible chart-topping solo career.

Between them, Take That and Robbie Williams have sold over 80 million albums, had 13 number one albums, 17 number one singles, played to over 14.5 million people live, won 19 BRIT Awards, eight MTV awards and five Ivor Novello awards; and the list goes on.

UK tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, October 29, 2010, while European tickets go on sale on Friday, November 5, 2010.

In addition, Samsung Electronics is proud to announce that it has become the Presenting Partner of Take That’s Progress Live 2011 (UK only), a partnership that will allow Samsung to showcase its latest technology and enable millions of fans to capture and share exclusive footage from the tour.

Take That will also release their new album, Progress, on November 22, with the first single, The Flood, released on November 15.
