Take That and Robbie Williams

Take That have added extra eight dates to their 2011 tour putting it down to "unprecedented demand".

Phone and internet services have been struggling to cope ever since tickets for the rest of the tour went on sale this morning (29 October).

The extra dates are

  • Tuesday 31 May - Sunderland Stadium of Light
  • Wednesday 8 June - City of Manchester Stadium
  • Friday 10 June - City of Manchester stadium
