Could it be magic? Yep, Take That return to Middlesbrough

Whatever we said, whatever we did, we clearly meant it – because Take That are back in Boro!

The first act to play a major concert at the Riverside Stadium in 2019, the Manchester icons are returning to the town for their second headline show.

Supported by Olly Murs, tens of thousands of Teessiders and those from further afield are expected to descend on Middlesbrough for the gig.

Speculation had been rife that Gary, Mark and Howard were heading back to Middlesbrough after a projection of the band’s logo was spotted on the side of the stadium this week.

Back in 2019, the band played a greatest hits set including Back For Good, Pray and Never Forget in a spectacular show featuring a giant globe, giant columns of fire and a guest appearance Lulu. Fans will be hoping for more of the same on Friday May 24, 2024.

The UK-wide stadium and arena tour celebrates ninth studio album This Life, which is set for release in November.

Those who pre-order Take That’s new album This Life from the official store before 10am on Tuesday September 26 will receive a special code to access pre-sale tickets from Wednesday September 27 at 9.30am.

Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 29 September at 9.30am.

The Arctic Monkeys gig at the Riverside Stadium this year boosted Middlesbrough’s economy by almost £1m.

The Sheffield rockers wowed 32,000 fans on June 5 at the third major concert to be held at the Riverside.

Analysis of visitor numbers have revealed the huge impact the event had on Middlesbrough town centre.

Restaurants, bars and hotels all enjoyed a bumper night as music fans travelled from around the region.

Data analysed by Middlesbrough Council shows the event drew in the highest number of visitors to the town centre for a Monday since local records began.

The Council worked alongside Tees Valley Combined Authority to provide assistance to promoters SJM and the football club in the build-up to the gig.

And those involved hope for a similar impact this time round.
