Take That History

Here you can easily find out more about the great genius band i.e Take That!
We will bring to you the history, biography, lifetime of Take That as completely and accurately as we can. The information we have brought together has come from a number of sources, including tv and magazine interview, the official fan club, forums, blogs, websites and other publications!

Early Days
When Take That shaped, they were forging a new type of musical pathway as much as a musical career, as they were largely the pioneers of the new boyband genre outside of the US. They going ahead with more dance oriented melodies to cater to the British dance and disco scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and were known for a more older, adult feel and image than the squeaky-clean New Kids. The band sported body piercings, tattoos, facial hair and dreadlocks (in Donald's case).
For the first two years, the band performed at school dances, public events and even bars.

Success (1992)
The band's burst through single was a cover of the 1970s Tavares hit It Only Takes A Minute, which sharp at number seven on the UK Singles Chart. This success was followed by the track I Found Heaven, then by the first Barlow ballad A Million Love Songs - both top 20 hits. Their cover of the Barry Manilow disco hit Could It Be Magic gave them their biggest hit to date, peaking at number 3 in the UK. Their first album, Take That & Party, was released in 1992, and included all the hit singles to date. The band was still however, not widely known outside of the dance circuit, and had not made it into the mainstream music charts.

1993 saw the release of Take That's most successful original album Everything Changes, based on Barlow's original material. It spawned four UK number one singles - their first number one Pray, Relight My Fire, Babe (beaten to Christmas number one by Mr Blobby), and the title track Everything Changes. The fifth single Love Ain't Here Anymore reached number three on the UK charts. Everything Changes saw the band gain international success, but it failed to crack the US market where an exclusive remix Love Ain't Here Anymore (U.S. Version) gained little success. However, by 1994, the band had become radio and television hits across Europe and Asia, where along many other 90s acts like Michael Jackson and Duran Duran, the rise of MTV videos streamed direct to via what was a new form of television called cable TV saw the rise of global touring opportunities because of worldwide audiences as it meant the band reached audiences far and wide. However, it was not till 1995 that the band would do their first World Tour.

On 13 February 1996, Take That declared that they were disbanding. This was followed by the Greatest Hits compilation in 1996, which contained a new recording, a cover of The Bee Gees How Deep Is Your Love. The single went on to become what was to be the band's final U.K. number one until their 2005 comeback a decade later. At the time in 1996, such was the level of Take That's popularity, that upon their announcement of their break up, millions of teenage fans were seen crying all over the country and across Europe. The situation got so dire that counselling hotlines had to be specially set up by local authorities to cater to suicidal tendencies in many young women

We'll take a little break first, then probably take another break and then see where we go from there. But we think we can get even better."The group, whose recent hits include Shine and Rule The World, were ecstatic about their live act award - even though they in fact declared that their recent tour had taken it out of them.Mark Owen, 36, reportedly said: "The older we get the more painful it is to perform."

Take That Biography

Take That was shaped in 1990 as Britain’s respond to the American boy band ’New Kids on the Block’. The band members were Gary Barlow (lead vocalist and song-writer), Robbie Williams (second lead and cheeky chappie), Jason Orange (choreographer and dancer), Marc Owen (the ’cute’ one)and Howard Donald (dancer).

Although they had a somewhat shaky start, and were close to being dropped from their record label - they then released ’It Only Takes a Minute’ which went to the number one chart spot. Teenage girls loved them everywhere, and they had eight number one hits altogether - including ’Relight My Fire’ with Lulu (also reinvigorating Lulu’s career as well!)

News that Robbie was leave-taking the band was taken badly by the fans, and although the four that were left did carry on (and have two more hit records) they finally announced it was all over in 1996. Teenage girls worldwide needed counselling... Until the next boy band of course.

Post Take That, youngest band member Robbie Williams has gone on to acheive the dizzying heights of A List stardom, while Gary (the one who was expected to shine) has not been heard of so much, although he did have two number one singles.
