Take That have announced their tour dates next year – and they will be coming to Southampton.

The tour will see them play across the country including St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday June 1.

The announcement also included the news of their ninth studio album ‘This Life’ set for release on November 24.

This Life On Tour will see the trio - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – play 29 dates across 15 cities around the UK and Ireland.

They will be joined on the tour by special guest, Olly Murs.

Tickets will be available from September 29 but fans who pre-order the new album from their website before 10am on September 26 will also receive a code to access pre-sale tickets from September 27 at 9.30am.

It comes after the band’s logo was spotted shining onto the side of St Mary's Stadium on Tuesday.

The illumination led to hope among the band's fans that Southampton could feature in a tour line-up. 

They last toured with Greatest Hits Live in 2019 - although Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald played Hyde Park in July this year.
