The Band is the fastest-selling musical theatre tour of all time and has already added a number of dates to the schedule.

It is first set in 1992, where, for a group of 16-year-old girls, their favourite band means everything to them.

Those same women meet 25 years later, and try to fulfil their dream of meeting the boy band whose music became the soundtrack to their lives.

The Band features music by Take That, Britain’s most successful boy band, and is filled with recognisable hits including Never Forget, Back For Good, and Rule The World.

Take That’s own members have been involved in the show, with Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams among its producers.

The Band stars young singers who formed their own band on the BBC’s Let It Shine show.

The group, called Five To Five, made it through televised auditions to win the chance to star in the production.

The Band will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from Tuesday to April 28.

For tickets, priced £23.40-53.40, and show times, visit or call 08448 713012.

The Mercury has teamed up with the Bristol Hippodrome to offer a pair of tickets to the show on Tuesday at 7.30pm.

The competition closes at 10am on Monday.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. By entering the competition, you agree to be contacted by Archant.
