Greatest Days, billed as "the official Take That musical," will launch a tour of the U.K. and Ireland May 5, 2023, at Bromley's Churchill Theatre.
The musical follows five best friends in the 1990’s who are obsessed with their favorite boy band. The women reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time.
Featuring a book by Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Our House, Kinky Boots) and more than 15 of Take That's record-breaking songs, including "Relight My Fire" and "Could It Be Magic." The tour will coincide with the summer 2023 release of the film version of the musical, starring Aisling Bea and Jayde Adams.
The tour, currently scheduled through November 2023, will play dates in Canterbury, Norwich, Blackpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Bristol, Southampton, Brighton, Truro, Leicester, Aylesbury, Sunderland, and more. Casting will be announced at a later time.
Greatest Days, originally produced as The Band by David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers, and Take That, opened a U.K. tour at Manchester Opera House in September 2017 and closed in March 2019. The musical played a limited West End holiday engagement at Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2018. Adam Kenwright is the producer of Greatest Days.
