This year Take That embarked on the biggest tour the UK and Ireland had ever seen breaking all previous records. The Progress Live Tour went through 29 UK stadiums and played to over 1.8 million people. Now everyone who went, as well as those who missed the most spectacular live show the UK has ever seen, can enjoy the show on double disc DVD and Blu-ray from November 21st.
Take That's previous live DVDs have broken every record ever set in the UK music DVD market, with the last three going straight to No.1 and each outdoing the last in terms of speed of sales. Expect this to be a firm Christmas favourite.
Progress Live includes the band's entire epic-live show and a bonus disc featuring exclusive behind the scenes footage, filmed across the 29 UK dates, giving a unique insight into life on the road of one of the most successful bands in UK history.
Named after the three-million-plus selling 'Progress' album that reunited them, the Progress Live 2011 tour, was one of the biggest and most anticipated reunions of the summer, with Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams, playing to massive sell-out audiences around the UK and Ireland.
This was the first time the band had toured together as a five-piece since 1995, and they played a monumental two and a half hour set filled with all the biggest hits from their incredible 20 year history.
The huge production wowed audiences with a non-stop, jaw-dropping spectacle which included roller skating bees, a giant purple caterpillar, shaolin monks, dancing chess pieces, a massive 75 foot wall of water, scaled by acrobatic, gravity defying dancers, a huge 60 foot robot knick-named OM who moved down through the audience throughout the set. The entire set was presided over by the 'big man', a massive head and shoulder structure with lasers for eyes, 150 feet above, looking out over the crowds on the top of the stage.
Take That's Progress Live 2011 tour became the biggest tour in UK and Irish history when a record breaking 1.34 million tickets were snapped up in less than 24 hours of going on sale. The band smashed their previous box office record set in 2008 with The Circus Live Tour selling over 1.8 million tickets overall, more than doubling their own record for sales in a single day.
Take That Progress Live on DVD & Blu-ray released 21 November.
