Robbie’s Back with Take That?
About Bloody time! Since the first Take That reunion tour it’s become almost a joke with the will he, wont he? But according to Sky News he will!!
I’ve seen Take That twice, seen Robbie Williams three times, never together though!
I will admit I’ve always been a bit of a Take That fan and have Could It Be Magic on 7″ and I also have the Babe cd Single with limited calendar cover for 1994. (showing my age here)
When Take That announced the final goodbye in 1996 after Robbie had left the group, he seemed like Robbie had made a good decision. Gary Barlow had two hits with Forever Love and Open Road but seemed to drift off to the ‘dumper’ (used especially for Smash Hits readers). Robbie on the other hand released a cover of George Michael‘s Freedom before heading to record ‘Life Thru a Lens’.
It started looking like Robbie was going to just be another Indie rock act, with Old Before I Die and Lazy Days, Robbie’s career was going to be over before it started. Then came Let Me Entertain You and Angels.. Then came Glastonbury, it seemed that Robbie could take over the world. Well nearly, except The US.
So Robbie went off and made loads of money, Gary married a dancer, Jason and Howard were DJing or whatever and Mark was still pretty. Obviously the final four got back together and they decided to take over the world, they had a chance seeing as Robbie’s Rudebox didn’t really cut it with the punters.
Robbie’s creative partner Guy Chambers went off to work with other people, Robbie went to look for UFO’s so TT jumped and won back the now 20-30 somethings who screamed at them as kids (I didn’t do that). I guess Mark wanting to prove himself as a superstud may have played well in Robbie’s favour.
The five guys are now back in the news for the right reasons, It’s all about the music. It just took 15 years to sort it out. I want to know when’s the tour?
