Fans from all over the North East and further afield will be flocking to Middlesbrough on Friday night, as Take That return to the Riverside Stadium for the first time in five years.

The last time the nation's favourite boyband were in Teesside was in 2019, when they were supported by music icon Rick Astley and now, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald are back at the Riverside Stadium on their This Life tour, with the nationwide jaunt getting its name from Take That's latest album of the same name.

So far, the tour has taken the now trio to the likes of Manchester, Glasgow and London and, having always had an amazing reception when they've come to the North East, they are sure to have a loud and captive audience on Friday, when the night will kick off with a set from Olly Murs.
