Could It Be Tragic?

‘GREAT news for Thatters, Takers and Jason Orange – Take That are to reunite.

Relight their fire

“WANT YOU BACK FOR LOOT,” says the Sun, as it reports that Mark Owen, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and the aforesaid Orange will be paid £1.5 million each to perform before thousands of young mums.

But what will fans see? The tour will coincide with the ten-year anniversary of the band’s split, and the years have not always been kind.

As the Sun says, Orange, who has “done loads of travelling”, has forgotten all his dance routines, Barlow refuses to dance at all, Donald has washed his hair and Owen looks less like a boyish heartthrob and more like a shrivelled jockey without a horse.

And then there are only four of them. Robbie Williams will not be appearing on the tour.

The danger is that the show will be less than great. Mums keen to show their young daughters just how great Take That were run the risk of being seen as sad old squares by their offspring.

“Everything changes but you,” sing the band – as Orange dances like your dad and the crowd goes as wild as their prescription medicines allow…’
