UK/Europe Tour: Progress Live (2011) (with Take That)
Progress Live 2011 is the biggest tour in UK and Irish history with over 1.76 million people having seen the show over the summer. The tour, one of the most highly anticipated music events of the 2011, is the first time the band have toured as a five-piece since 1995. Audiences around the UK have are wowed by a spectacular two and a half hour set, which celebrates their biggest hits from the last two decades.
When Progress Live 2011 went on sale in October 2010, a record breaking 1.34 million tickets were snapped up in less than 24 hours. The band smashed their previous box office record set in 2008 with Take That's The Circus Live Tour selling a total of 1.76 million tickets overall, more than doubling Take That's previous record for sales in a single day. 850,000 tickets went on sale at 09:00 on 29th October, 2010 and throughout the day the band added a further 11 dates to cope with demand.
The band brought the UK leg of Progress Live 2011 to a roaring finale with a record-breaking eight night run at Wembley Stadium, a record previously held by Michael Jackson for his Bad tour in 1988.
To mark this historic occasion, a 360-degree panoramic photo was taken at the last of the band’s Wembley shows that captures the entire Wembley crowd. This truly unique photo has been commissioned by Wembley Stadium, Take That and The Sun to say thank you to their fans for their unprecedented support and to celebrate the band’s record breaking Wembley shows.
Take That said: “Performing at Wembley Stadium is really special, there is no other place quite like it. The audiences have been absolutely incredible and we wanted to thank everyone who’s come to see us for all their support. We hope everyone will enjoy reliving the show and sharing their memories from our last night at Wembley with all their friends.”
