TAKE That have added a third North-East date to their 2015 UK tour.

The band, who are the UK’s most successful live act ever, are aready playing at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on May 18 and 19 next year.

Now, due to phenomenal demand, they have added a third date, on Thursday, July 2.

Four years after the band’s last record-breaking tour, Progress Live, Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald commence a 24-date UK tour.

Rumour has been rife about when Take That would be announcing their next tour since they officially unveiled details of their new album ‘III’.

Previous tours have included everything from aerialists, circus performers, a wall of water, holograms, a giant elephant and, on the last tour, a 60ft robot.

They said: “We’ve always been very proud of our live shows and are very excited to be touring again next year.

“Playing live is something we love the most about what we do, and we’re looking forward to putting on the most amazing show we can.

“It will have been four years since our last tour so we’re really keen to get back out on the road to play some of our biggest songs from the last 20 years alongside our new ones.”

Special guest for the tour will be rising star Ella Henderson, who recently celebrated both her debut single, Glow and her first album, Chapter One, reaching the No.1 spot in the UK charts.

Tickets, priced from £55, plus booking and processing fees, are on sale now online and via the booking hotline (0844) 493 6666.
