TAKE That fans have just hours to wait until the band starts its Progress tour in Sunderland.

And band member Jason Orange says he is “hugely” excited about the shows.

Take That had their final rehearsal at the Sunderland Stadium of Light last night.

Gates open at the 49,000-seat venue at 5pm today as the waiting finally ends for the group’s loyal fans.

The tour promises to be spectacular, but Orange is confident it will all come together. “It’ll be reet. It always is,” he said.

Take That are in the top 40 with their single Love Love from the new X-Men: First Class movie.

The group’s main songwriter, Gary Barlow, said it would be the sole track from their forthcoming collection of new songs, Progressed, which will feature during the tour.

“It’s the only one from the new batch that we play live,” he said.
