Take That, the celebrated trio of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald, have thrilled fans with the announcement of their “This Life On Tour,” marking their grand return to New Zealand in November 2024.

The tour, which will be their first in the region since 2017, promises an extensive seven-date itinerary across New Zealand and Australia, including performances in premier arenas and the picturesque settings of a day on the green wineries.

The tour is set to commence at Perth’s RAC Arena on October 30, weaving through iconic venues such as Peter Lehmann Wines in Barossa Valley, Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, and Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena. The journey continues with enchanting stops at Bimbadgen in Hunter Valley and Sirromet Wines in Queensland’s Mount Cotton, concluding with a finale at Auckland’s Spark Arena on November 14.


Adding to the excitement, pop icon Sophie Ellis-Bextor is confirmed to join Take That as a special guest across all tour dates. Australian star Ricki-Lee is also slated to perform at the winery shows, taking a brief hiatus from her roles on Australian Idol and Nova Drive.

The band are promising a mix of new songs from their latest album, “This Life,” fan favourites, and surprises. “We can’t wait to see everyone again and share our music, both new tracks and the classics, with our fans. It’s going to be an unforgettable experience,” shared Take That.

Tickets go on sale from February 13, and Fans can find tickets and further details on the Frontier Touring website.

Take That’s reputation for spectacular live performances is well-documented, holding the record for the most headline shows at London’s The O2. Their 2011 Progress tour set a UK record for fastest-selling tickets, and their 30th-anniversary Odyssey tour in 2019 was a resounding success, showcasing their enduring popularity and musical evolution.

Their ninth studio album, “This Life,” released last year, has been a commercial triumph, hitting Number 1 on the UK’s Official Charts and becoming the biggest-selling album by a UK artist in 2023. The album features a blend of strong vocals, melodic harmonies, and energetic compositions, marking a new chapter for the band.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor, renowned for her early-2000s hit “Murder On The Dancefloor,” will bring additional star power to the tour, with her resurgence in popularity, bolstered by recent media exposure and a cover by Royel Otis, adding an exciting dimension to the upcoming shows.
