RECREATING the magic of Take That, Back For Good is the ultimate tribute act to the greatest band of recent times and will be visiting The Playhouse in Weston next month.

In Manchester 1990, Nigel Martin-Smith formed what is now considered to be the most successful boy band of all time - Take That.

From back when the members wanted to Take That and Party to when it was time for them to Shine once again, they changed the face of pop and created a music phenomenon.

Originally consisting of five members the band went on to sell 19 million records between 1991 and 1996, dominating the charts for the early part of the 90’s with their dance orientated pop tunes and soulful ballads.

Back For Good is the ultimate celebration of the music of Take That in the UK today with a fan base transcending age groups and nationalities alike.

With their amazing dance routines, numerous costume changes and their sensational performances, they have set themselves apart from the usual tribute act.

Fans of Take That will be singing and dancing their hearts out all night long and left wondering if they could be watching ‘The Greatest Boy Band Of All Time’.

The show features all the hits, old and new, such as The Flood, Hold Up A Light, SOS, Rule The World, Greatest Day, Relight My Fire, Never Forget, It Only Takes A Minute Girl, Everything Changes, Shine to the heart warming Babe, Patience, Said It All, Love Ain’t Here Anymore and A Million Love Songs.

Back For Good visits The Playhouse on June 18 at 7.30pm.
