Robbie Williams will rejoin Take That to play virtual gig at home tomorrow night – The Sun

ROBBIE Williams will tomorrow rejoin Take That again for their first virtual gig.

Robbie, 46, and his old bandmates Gary Barlow, 49, Mark Owen, 48, and Howard Donald, 52, will be seen performing from their own individual homes.

The pre-recorded lockdown charity concert will be streamed on the Compare The Meerkat YouTube page at 8pm.

It is the first time Robbie has performed with Take That since the 2018 X Factor final.

And it comes nearly three decades after the release of the then boyband’s first album Take That & Party.

They aim to raise funds for two causes — creative music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and the Crew Nation relief fund to help concert crews globally.

Robbie said: “I am really looking forward to performing with the boys again — it’s always a pleasure.” He added: “If we can’t go to the stadium . . . we’ll bring the stadium to us.”

They will perform Greatest Day, Shine, Back For Good, The Flood, Pray, Never Forget, Everything Changes and Rule The World. The latter two will only be for Compare The Market customers.

Jason Orange, 49, who left in 2014, is not involved.

Robbie previously said: “You know you have that Find My Phone thing? Take That should have a ‘locate Jason Orange’ thing because none of us know where he’s gone.”
