Take That announce Beautiful tour
Mark Owen and Gary Barlow
The group played to half a million fans in the UK last year
Reformed boy band Take That are to tour the UK for the second time after getting back together last year.

The Beautiful World Tour will include shows in Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, London and Manchester during November and December.

Last year's single Patience and album Beautiful World topped the charts following a successful reunion tour.

Gary Barlow said: "We can think of no better way to round off the year than by giving our fans the best show ever."

He added: "We've all been totally overwhelmed by the support and loyalty from our fans and the encouragement we've received over the past 18 months."

Brit winners

The Beautiful World Tour starts with four shows at Birmingham's NEC from 16-20 November, and includes five shows at The O2 in London - the former Millennium Dome in Greenwich.

It ends with eight concerts at Manchester's MEN Arena between 10-19 December. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 0900 GMT.

The band played to more than 500,000 people on their comeback tour in 2006, while Beautiful World sold 1.15 million copies in the UK in its first month of release.

Their hit Patience won best single at the recent Brit Awards.
