UK pop group Take That has announced today that Australian pop star Dannii Minogue will be joining the band on tour as special guest on their Take That Live 2017 tour of Australia in November, presented by TEG Live, performing her greatest hits with her live band.
Dannii Minogue is one of Australia’s most loved entertainers, many of us having grown up watching her on our television screens from performing on Young Talent Time to mentoring new acts on The X factor.
Dannii launched a successful music career in the early 1990’s with multiple hit singles both in Australia and across Europe with 14 No. 1 hits on the UK club charts and 13 UK top 20 hits, among them This Is It, Put the Needle On It, I Begin to Wonder, Who Do You Love Now? and All I Wanna Do. By the early 2000’s Dannii Minogue was the best performing artist on the UK Dance Charts and named Queen of the Clubs.
Both Dannii and Gary Barlow have previously served as judges on The X Factor in the UK and more recently Dannii joined forces with Gary on the judging panel of Gary Barlow’s BBC One talent show Let It Shine.
Take That said: “We’re thrilled to have Dannii on tour with us. She is a force to be reckoned with and having her on the tour makes it extra special. We can’t wait to come to Australia and tour with her.
Dannii Minogue said: “I remember Take That from their very first days starting off and have loved watching their musical journey over the last 26 years. I love performing my hits with a live band and there are plenty of mash-ups in store. I have toured throughout Europe for years but this is the first time I’ve done a national tour in Australia performing my music. I can’t wait to get back on stage with my band – expect some big anthems and a trip down memory lane!”
Take That Live 2017 will see Take That performing their biggest and best hits from the past three decades as well as new music from their recently released album, Wonderland in their first national Australian tour in over 22 years.
Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald with special guest Dannii Minogue will be embarking on a national tour in November as follows:
