This Life On Tour – 2024.

Take That embarked on their lengthy 41-date UK tour this week, beginning in Sheffield before jumping over the Pennines to visit us at the First Direct Arena for four whole nights from Wednesday 17 April 2024 – Saturday 21 April 2024.

This tour sees remaining members Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald bring together fans spanning across the decades with a whopping 29 hit songs.

It really is the ‘idea of a nice day out’, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the four-day stint here in Leeds.

Take That are due on stage around 8.35pm if the Sheffield show earlier this week is anything to go by.

Who’s supporting Take That in Leeds?

Olly Murs has been widely publicised as the ‘very special guest’ for the Take That tour and the Dance With Me Tonight singer appears to be having a ball so far and Gary Barlow has said he “can’t think of anybody better” (just about).

The setlist for Olly Murs on tour so far has been as followed:

  • Everybody Needs Somebody To Love (Solomon Burke cover)
  • Dance With Me Tonight
  • Wrapped Up

Is Olly Murs still performing with Take That at the First Direct Arena?

The First Direct Arena have confirmed that Olly Murs has performed at the first two nights of the First Direct Arena tour. If this changes, the information is likely to be announced via Olly Murs’ social media channels.

The news comes after the singer welcomed his first child this week.

The “idea of a nice day out”

Gary Barlow recently blew up online with countless memes of the singer talking about his vineyard as “the idea of a nice day out”, and he’s already been quick to make it part of the set in Sheffield.

We’ll certainly be counting the number of times that the phrase comes up over the next month or so whilst the band is on tour.
