Take That at 3Arena Dublin: which songs will they play, can I buy tickets, stage times and more

Everything you need to know about the veteran group’s Irish dates

Take That take the stage at the 3Arena Dublin on April 22nd and 23rd as part of their 15-city, 29-date tour celebrating their ninth studio album This Life. The trio – Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – will be joined by support act Olly Murs, of X Factor fame.

Take That are renowned for their huge productions, holding the record for the most performances at London’s The O2 with 34 headline shows.

The three original members are responsible for quite a few of the best-known pop songs of the past 30 years. But regardless of how long they have been around – with or without Robbie Williams – they continue to bring the energy.

Here’s all you need to know about Gary Barlow and co being back in Dublin town.
