The Band A New Musical Sheffield history
The Band A New Musical's history goes back to the 1990 formation of Take That. Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams, Jason Orange and Howard Donald would soon become household names as early singles such as "It Only Takes a Minute," "A Million Love Songs" and a cover of Barry Manilow's "Could It Be Magic" soared up the U.K. singles chart. The band's debut album, Take That & Party, came out in 1992, and was followed in 1993 by Everything Changes. The latter was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize. A long string of hits from the album, among them the No. 1 singles "Pray" and "Babe," elevated Take That to mega-star status. Their song "Back for Good" notably went to No. 1 in 31 countries.
Williams' departure from Take That in 1995 marked the end of the boy band's original incarnation, but they continued to keep fans happy with such hit songs as "Never Forget." The four-piece disbanded in 1996, but not before scoring another No. 1 that year with a cover of The Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love."
Take That's second era began with their reunion for an ITV documentary, which was followed by the announcement of a tour in 2006. The same year, they recorded and released a comeback album, Beautiful World, along with a single, "Patience," both of which hit the top spot. The band's next album, The Circus, was also met with acclaim. Another nod to Take That's success came when the band won an Ivor Novello Award in 2008.
In 2010, Take That fans were thrilled to learn that Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow had collaborated on several songs, including the No. 2 hit duet, "Shame." Williams soon made his official return to Take That's lineup, reuniting the original band for the Progress album and a huge stadium tour. Williams would stick with Take That until 2014, when both he and Jason Orange left the band.
Let It Shine, the BBC One television series searching for the cast of the new stage musical, The Band, aired its first episode in early January 2017. The tenth and final episode in late February revealed the five winners who would perform Take That's music on stages across the U.K. - AJ Bentley, Curtis T. Johns, Nick Carsberg, Sario Solomon and Yazdan Qafouri.
