Take That fans…IT’S HAPPENING.
Robbie Williams is officially rejoining the band and taking his place alongside Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald once more.
But they’ve announced they’re having a virtual reunion to raise money for good causes during the coronavirus pandemic, performing as one of Compare the Market’s Meerkat Music gigs.
Landing on Compare the Meerkat’s YouTube and Facebook Live channels on May 29th, the boys will be singing some of their greatest hits in support of Crew Nation – which supports concert crew workers through a relief fund – and music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
“This is a world first for us!” the group said in a statement. “Reuniting with our old friend online for a one-off performance!
“It’s always great getting back together with Robbie and we are really excited to be part of this unique show that everyone can enjoy from home.
“We are also delighted to be supporting Nordoff Robbins and Crew Nation around this show, two charities very close to our hearts.”
Meanwhile, Robbie said: “I am really looking forward to performing with the boys again – it’s always a pleasure. Nordoff Robbins and Crew Nation are both such brilliant charities and I’m thrilled to be supporting them around this show.
“If we can’t go to the stadium…we’ll bring the stadium to us.”
The group have reunited with Robbie only a small selection of times over the years, including when he joined the boys in 2010 on their ‘Progress’ album tour.
Jason Orange has not been announced to be joining the boys for the performance, following his departure from the group in 2014.
