Take That downsize to arenas for 2015 tour

Take That have revealed they will ditch the stadiums for smaller Arena venues on their 2015 tour.

After Jason Orange decided to leave the band earlier this year, the four piece became three and it seems the trio have now opted for more intimate gigs from now on.

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen have told how they are looking forward to swapping stadiums for arenas to make it a slightly more intimate affair.

Chief songwriter Gary, 43, said he was looking forward to playing the indoor shows, as the audience would be closer.

“It’s more intimate, our audience have stood in fields for seven years now watching us on a stage that’s miles away, its time to give them a better view.”

“It will be much the same without the worry that it’s going to rain on us. It’ll be more intimate than stadiums and that’s a good thing,” added Howard.

General tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Thursday
