The release is preceded by the reworked version of Pray, originally unveiled in 1993 as part of their Everything Changes album.Due for release on the 23 November 2018, Odyssey looks back at three decades as a band with 27 tracks from across Take That’s career. As well as three brand new tracks, the album will also welcome a host of special guests. The full track listing and further details are expected to revealed at a later date.Take That formed in Manchester in 1989, going on to become the biggest boy band in the world. Looking back at their career, which includes a nine year break, Howard Donald says: “The story is, if you think about it, quite mad.”“We wanted to tell the tale of the band,” Mark Owen adds, “the history of what happened to us. If you only ever own one of them, this should be the definitive Take That record.”Speaking of the creation of Odyssey‘s re-imagined tracks, Gary Barlow reveals: “Some have been reworked, but without spoiling what people loved about them in the first place. You’ve got to be respectful, but at the same time, you’ve got to let the ambition of doing something new and refreshed come through as well.”Take That released their debut Take That & Party in 1992, reaching No.2 on the official UK album chart. Sophomore album Everything Changes took the top spot, featuring singles such as Babe and the anthemic Relight My Fire alongside British legend Lulu.Nobody Else saw Take That break internationally, reaching the top of the charts in eleven countries. The album spawned the massive singles Back For Good and Never Forget.Following the departure from the band of Robbie Williams, they took a nine year break. The four remaining members reunited in 2005, launching a comeback that led to three No.1 albums in four years. Robbie returned in 2011 for the release of Progress, before both Williams and Jason Orange departed.Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen went on to release III and their most recent album Wonderland in 2017. Now Odyssey and their forthcoming UK dates look to embrace their vibrant musical past, all the way from Take That & Party to the present day.The Greatest Hits Live 2019 tour, featuring special guest Rick Astley, will take to the following venues:15 April 2019 – FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield16 April 2019 – FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield18 April 2019 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow19 April 2019 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow20 April 2019 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow22 April 2019 – Manchester Arena, Manchester23 April 2019 – Manchester Arena, Manchester25 April 2019 – Manchester Arena, Manchester26 April 2019 – Manchester Arena, Manchester27 April 2019 – Manchester Arena, Manchester29 April 2019 – 3Arena, Dublin2 May 2019 – The O2, London3 May 2019 – The O2, London4 May 2019 – The O2, London5 May 2019 – The O2, London7 May 2019 – The O2, London8 May 2019 – The O2, London12 May 2019 – Birmingham Arena, Birmingham13 May 2019 – Birmingham Arena, Birmingham14 May 2019 – Birmingham Arena, Birmingham17 May 2019 – Birmingham Arena, Birmingham18 May 2019 – Birmingham Arena, Birmingham23 May 2019 – Milton Keynes Stadium, Milton Keynes25 May 2019 – St Mary’s Stadium, Southampton28 May 2019 – Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol30 May 2019 – Carrow Road Stadium, Norwich1 June 2019 – Riverside Stadium, Middlesborough4 June 2019 – John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield
