Take That tour kicks off making UK history

Jason Orange, Howard Donald, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen and Gary Barlow of Take That attend a press conference to announce their new stadium tour Progress

The biggest tour in UK live music history kicks off on Friday when Take That play at Sunderland's Stadium of Light.

It's the first tour when Gary, Howard, Jason and Mark will perform again with Robbie Williams, who left the band in 1995.

Their sell-out tour of 25 gigs will see them play to more than a million fans in the UK and Ireland.

The band say they are excited about the concerts, but also a bit nervous too!

Howard said: "Things have to flow, and if you want to think hard about it, there is a lot you can worry about."
