After teasing their fans for quite some time, in September 2018 Take That finally announced their anniversary tour through Europe and the UK. Last year, the boy group also released their latest album “Odyssey” which contains their all time greatest hits and even three brand new songs. Now the ongoing question for all Take That fans is of course: Will Robbie Williams be joining them for the 2019 tour?
In 2017, a fan reached out to Gary Barlow, Take That’s frontman, asking him if Take That will be performing as a five piece on their upcoming tour. In a tweet Barlow crushed any hopes by simply answering: “Doubt it x”. In the same year, Williams stated that a 2019 tour wouldn’t be possible for him due to ongoing health issues. Despite this statement, Robbie Williams has now got some solo performances lined up in 2019. He will be performing a few shows in Las Vegas this summer and will be headlining the great “British Summer Time” in Hyde Park in London.
About this fact Robbie Williams said in an interview: “Next year when the boys are on tour, I’m on tour too. If we’re in the same place at the same time, there’s an open mic at my gig. I’m sure there’s an open mic at theirs too.“ So while he won’t be joining the band officially, it is likely that he could make a surprise appearance at some point of the tour. One thing is clear for sure – former member Jason Orange couldn’t be persuaded to join them for the tour.
Recently, Williams reunited with his bandmates Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen for a short time at the final of the ITV talent show where the four singers performed their hit “Everything Changes” together.
So the possibility that he will join his former band colleagues for some shows seems to further grow.
