Take That's family tour
Take That are set to take their families on tour with them.
The 'Patience' group - who announced last week they would be reuniting with original member Robbie Williams for the first time in 15 years for a 52-date arena tour - are reportedly planning to set up backstage crèches and provide a special tour bus to cater for the needs of their wives and girlfriends.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The boys are no longer youngsters, living the life of Riley and going out every night, boozing. They're men now, they have responsibilities. And next year's tour will reflect this more than ever.
"The families have been consulted at every stage in negotiations so far and the women are adamant they will be a part of this tour. They won't be at every venue but facilities - family dressing rooms, a crèche and healthy backstage food and drink options - will be provided at each arena."
The proposal is a particular hit with Mark Owen - who earlier this year admitted to a string of infidelities since he began a relationship with now-wife Emma Ferguson in 2004 - who was keen to have his partner by his side throughout the UK and European tour.
The insider added: "Mark wants to be really close to his family throughout the album promotion later this year and next summer's tour, so a lot of the ideas were his. Obviously he had a lot to prove to Emma, but he is determined to do it. It'll be a real family affair."
Take That - also comprising Gary Barlow, Jason Orange and Howard Donald - split up in 1996, a year after Robbie quit the group.
They announced they were reuniting - without the 'Angels' singer - in 2005 and made a triumphant return to the stage in 2006.Posted on 19 Jul 2010 10:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
