“No chance” of a full Take That reunion, says Gary Barlow

Hopes that all five original members of Take That would get together for a 25th anniversary show have seemingly been dashed. Not least because they missed the big date last year. Gary Barlow now says there’s “no chance” of a full reunion.

Speaking to the Mirror, Barlow said: “I wouldn’t put money on [a reunion]. Don’t waste your money. I would say there’s no chance”.

The seed that a full reunion might happen was planted last year. In an interview Howard Donald said that they were hoping to put on a show with all five members to mark the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut album, ‘Take That And Party’.

The August 2017 deadline for that may have already passed, but that’s no need to lose hope. Donald noted that Jason Orange and Robbie Williams might take longer to convince than they had time for, conceding: “It might be the 30th anniversary we end up celebrating”.

Now Barlow has seemingly given up on the idea entirely. Although optimist Mark Owen remains hopeful, saying in the new Mirror interview: “I wouldn’t say there’s no chance, but I’ve always said that”.

The remaining trio performed on the roof of the Theatre Royal Haymarket earlier this week, in an attempt to draw attention to that stupid musical they’re involved in. They’re also planning a greatest hits compilation and tour later this year.
