Take That announce new LP Wonderland
Take That are to release new album 'Wonderland' in March 2017 and fans will be able to hear the songs live for the first time on their arena tour in May and June
Take That are to release new album 'Wonderland' next year.
The 'Back For Good' hitmakers - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - have announced the follow-up to 2014's 'III', which is being slated for release sometime in March 2017.
The band have also teased their plans for a UK arena tour, 'Wonderland Live', which will see them perform for the first time in the centre of arenas rather than on stage, at venues around the UK and Ireland in May and June including four dates at London's The O2 from June 6 to June 10.
Take That have an impressive tour production history having been the only band to ever have a mechanical elephant on stage as part of their 2009 'Circus Tour', as well as, a 70-foot man named Om who rose out of the stage on 'The Progress Tour' in 2011.
Meanwhile, Gary, Howard and Mark won't be joined by bandmate Robbie Williams on this tour despite the 'Party Like a Russian' hitmaker recently admitting he would "love" to do a Take That reunion tour.
He previously said: "My head is, I'd love to do something with the boys but I don't know if it's going to be next year because you know, I want this album to have legs and I'm going to go on tour.
"As you can imagine, diary goes: album promo until January, February, March, and then I go on tour for a year which takes me through next year, next Christmas, which would be when the boys would be releasing an album I suppose. I can't do it. I can't do it next year. I want to - I want to be able to do both, but you can't."
