That's progress for you! - Take That announce yet more UK stadium shows for 2011

Posted: 7th December 2010

Just when we thought it was safe to reboot our servers, along comes Take That to cause another tsunami of ticketing activity - well, maybe not this time.

The newly reformed quintet has announced a further clutch of stadium concerts, as part of their already sold-out "Progress Tour", starting with two extras in Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on 27th and 28th May. This brings the total number of Take That concerts in the North East to four, while another date has been added to Manchester City's ground on 12th June.

The London concerts are a little more confusing - the band has moved one Wembley Stadium gig from Sunday 3rd July to Thursday 30th June and issued the following statement:

We are really sorry to have to move the dates in London but we'd heard there was a lot of disappointment from those not being able to get tickets. This was the only way that we could fit in another show, we hope everyone understands.

Tickets bought for 3rd July are valid for 30th June ONLY and anyone who cannot make the revised date can get a full refund. Look on the bright side - at least there might be some public transport on a Thursday compared to the usual Sunday tomfoolery.

The good news is that a brand new date has now been slipped in for Monday 4th July, making this an extra show for which you will have to buy new tickets (tickets from the 3rd will not be valid for this new concert).

Tickets for the new shows go on sale this Friday at 9am, priced at £55 upwards.
