Take That kick off their Wonderland tour
Take That kicked off their UK Wonderland tour in Birmingham last night (May 5).
The British trio - comprised of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - opened their latest tour at the Genting Arena in Birmingham, where Barlow showed off his newly dyed blonde hair. Of his new look, Barlow said:
"Vinyl’s back and I thought, ‘You know what? I’m taking it back to ’92.’ It was ’92 since I was blond and I thought, ‘It’s Wonderland. I can’t just walk on-stage with me old hairdo,’ so I’ve gone blond for this tour."
Referring to his wife, he added: “I did say to her, ‘Do you really like my hair?’ and she said, ‘It’s not the hair I’ve got the problem with, it’s your mid-life crisis’, and I was like, ‘Thanks very much’.”
The group are renowned for their fantastic live shows, which in the past have included holograms, mechanical elephants, walls of water, circus performers and aerialists and a 70-foot man called Om who joined them on their The Progress Tour.
And their Wonderland tour is bound to delight concert goers.
The new in-the-round stage and seating plan positions the group directly in the middle of their fans, who will be treated to acrobatics, stilt-walkers and a water show during 'The Flood'.
Meanwhile, fans who missed out a chance to see the 'Never Forget' live on their current tour will now have a chance to experience the live concert from the best seat in the house as the band recently announced their show at London's iconic O2 Arena on June 9 will be streamed to nearly 500 cinemas across the UK and Ireland. The band said:
"We're really looking forward to returning to cinemas with the live broadcast of our Wonderland show at London's O2 in June. The last time we did this in 2015, the atmosphere was amazing. The chance to have so many extra people joining us from cinemas around the UK and in Europe for one night only will be really exciting."
