Take That are one of the most iconic bands of the 90’s. After forming in 1989/90 in Manchester, they quickly achieved success and went on to score over 12 number one singles and seven number albums in the UK and 56 number one singles around the world. Tracks such as ‘Back For Good’ topped charts in around 30 countries, contributing to the band’s status as one of the most successful boy bands ever.

Now approaching three decades in music, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams were originally called ‘Kick It’ and intended to target the teen demographics of the day. The name changed and the fivesome released ‘Do What You Like’ in 1991, a track written by Barlow who continued to write or co-write many of the band’s biggest hits. After a few struggling releases, they won their first top ten hit in the UK a year later with a cover of Tavares’ ‘It Only Takes a Minute’ from the 70’s. They then went from strength to strength and began winning awards for their efforts.

Though Take That have maintained success and a loyal following over the years, their career has not been without conflict. In 1995, Robbie Williams left the group due to reports of drug abuse and a year later, Take That disbanded. They each embarked on solo careers, where Williams in particular found further success. In 2006, Take That announced a comeback reunion as a foursome, releasing new material and a tour. ‘Patience’ was officially their first release since reuniting, and immediately topped UK charts for four weeks. In 2010, Williams announced his return to the band, following releases of co-written tracks between himself and Barlow. They created a new album ‘Progress’, which became the fastest-selling album of the century, and a complimentary tour that went on to be the fastest-selling tour in the UK ever. In 2014, both Williams and Orange announced departures, but that didn’t stop the remaining trio from continuing Take That’s legacy.
