Here is everything you need to know.

What is the GREASTEST DAYS The Official Take That Musical about?



The musical follows a group of five best friends in the 1990’s who are obsessed with their favourite boy band. The girls then reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time in what could be the Greatest Days of their lives.

GREATEST DAYS features more than 15 of Take That’s record-breaking songs alongside that fans will not be able to help singing along to.

Plus you can expect a heart-warming and hilarious story of love, loss and laughter from the award-winning writer Tim Firth, who has previously collaborated with lifelong friend Gary Barlow Calendar Girls The Musical.

Although we imagine that there are not many, for those who are unfamiliar Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen are Take That in 2022.

Formed as a five-piece in 1989, they enjoyed immediate success with their first two albums charting at number 2 and number 1 respectively. Their third album Nobody Else confirmed their global domination, selling over six million copies and topping the charts in 11 countries.

The departure of band member Robbie Williams prompted a break-up in 1996 and nine years in the wilderness before the remaining four members reunited for 2005’s The Ultimate Tour.

In what has been one of the biggest comebacks in British music history, Take That went on to release three number 1 albums in just four years.

Since then the band has seen Robbie’s short return for 2011’s Progress breaking UK records for the fastest-selling album of the 21st century and fastest-selling tour of all time;

The departure of Jason Orange, leaving the three members to release the III album that went platinum;

And in 2019, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary with the release of Odyssey, a greatest hits album, which reached number 1 and a UK and European stadium and arena tour.

Is the GREASTEST DAYS The Official Take That Musical The same as The Band?


GREATEST DAYS as originally produced as The Band by David Pugh & Daffyd Rogers and Take That.

Take That said: “We are so thrilled that this new production now titled ‘Greatest Days’ is launching next year.  We had an enormous amount of fun working on the original version and can’t wait to help bring this new production to over 30 cities across the UK and Ireland from May 2023.”
