Take That want to perform at Glastonbury.

The trio - featuring Gary Barlow, Mark Own and Howard Donald - are desperate to perform at the annual event at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, next June, but revealed festival organiser Michael Eavis will not return their calls.

Speaking at the BBC Music Awards in London last night (11.12.14) where they performed their single 'These Days', Howard said: "Historically we've never done festivals - we did try and contact Michael Eavis but he didn't reply."

The group released their first studio album as a trio, 'III', last month following the departure of Jason Orange from the band, and are so desperate to perform at the iconic event, they begged the Daily Star newspaper for help in a bid to persuade organisers to ask them to play.

Mark joked: "We keep leaving him messages, can you help us?"

Away from the muddy fields of South West England, the 'Relight My Fire' hitmakers admitted the dance floor vibes on their new record make them want to perform in nightclubs on Balaeric party island, Ibiza.

Howard added: "I did say we should go to Ibiza,

"We've got the tunes for clubs like Pacha now, that's where we want to play."

The prototype boy band have re-lit their own fire and returned to cash in those nostalgia dollars, and have proved far more credible than any of us could have imagined. Now reduced to a three-piece as Jason Orange bows out but Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald soldier on.
