Take That and Danii Minogue to tour Australia in November

They’re the 90s boy band who are responsible for some of the biggest songs in pop history such as Back For Good, A Million Love Songs and I Found Heaven.

And Take That has set fans into meltdown by announcing the band will hit stages Down Under for the first time in 22 years this November.

The three remaining members Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald last toured Australia in 1995 with former members Jason Orange and Robbie Williams.

Also joining them on stage will be Dannii Minogue, who co-judges talent show Let It Shine with Gary.  

‘I’ll be going to cities around Australia where I’ve never performed my music with a live band before,’ she previously told News.com.au.

‘We used to cross paths at TV shows in the UK all the time in the 90s, so it’ll be nice to do something together after all this time,’ she said.

The trio took to their Instagram earlier this year to make the announcement for fans in a special video.

‘We’re thrilled to finally reveal that we’re coming to Australia and New Zealand in November this year!’ 

Take That 1995 tour of Australia took place just after Robbie Williams’ departure from the band as a result of his substance abuse.

Earlier this year, Gary told The Daily Telegraph: ‘We’re really excited to be coming back to see our Aussie fans and perform some of our greatest hits.’

‘Coming back to Australia has a special place in our hearts and our fan base are really dedicated — there’s generations of Take That family fans which is pretty surreal,’ he added.

Take That’s Australian tour kicks off in Perth on November 11.
