Take That to play Anfield’s first gig in 10 Years

As part of Take That’s Greatest Hits Tour taking place next summer, they’ll be playing the first concert at Anfield Stadium in 10 years. June 6th 2019 will mark a new era for the stadium, which has been permitted to host up to six gigs a year, Liverpool had aimed for more but local residents raised noise and traffic concerns. Between Mid-May and July, Anfield will play host to concerts and Take That will be the first to play to over 50,000 fans.

Ahead of the Greatest Hits tour, Take That will be releasing Odyssey, a lengthy album featuring some of their biggest tracks, re-recorded classics, collaborations and three brand new songs.

“It’s a real honour for us to be able to play Anfield, such a historic ground and venue. The Liverpool audiences have always been incredible,” said the band.

Tickets for Take That at Anfield go on sale this Friday, as well as tickets for the newly announced Cardiff date.

In addition to the Anfield date in Liverpool, there’s a massive amount of dates going on around the country, including five nights at Manchester Arena and a massive eight nights at London’s O2 Arena playing to over 160,000 people. The band will be supported by Rick Astley for all dates.
