Take That’s ‘The Band musical’ took £2million at the box office in under 2 hours after tickets went on sale.

Take That’s production of Tim Firth’s new musical, ‘The Band’, with the music of Take That, went on sale earlier this month and within the first two hours it took £2 million at the box office, making it the fastest selling theatre tour ever.

The UK tour of the musical will begin at Manchester Opera House on 8tg September, with a national press night on Tuesday 26th September 2017.

‘The Band’ is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.

The Band will be played by AJ Bentley, Nick Carsberg, Yazdan Qafouri Isfahani, Curtis T Johns and Sario Watanabe-Soloman, who, as Five to Five, won BBC’s Let It Shine.

Playing the parts of Rachel and Young Rachel will be Rachel Lumberg and Faye Christall respectively. Further casting is to be announced at a later time.
