Subscribe Take That

Newly reunited British boyband TAKE THAT have been asked to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, according to a report.
The Back for Good hitmakers have reunited with singer Robbie Williams to form a full line-up for the first time in 15 years.
On Thursday (15Jul10), all five singers - Williams, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, and Jason Orange - issued a statement confirming they will release a new album in November (10) and embark on a tour.
And the group has already been approached to help kick off the international summer sporting event in Stratford, east London in 2012, according to Britain's Daily Mirror.
A source tells the publication, "When rumours surfaced about a possible reunion, the committee immediately added Take That to the long list of possible performers. Since (artistic directors) Danny (Boyle) and Stephen (Daldry) came on board, this list has been shortened and informal discussions held with the group's management.
"At present, Robbie is only on board for a year, but that's to reduce the pressure on the group. The belief is that this will be a permanent move and he will therefore be available for 2012. It is a huge honour for the boys and will see them playing to a phenomenally big audience. Everyone is confident they are up to the challenge."
Other artists rumoured to be performing at the Olympics include the Spice Girls, Sir Paul MCCartney, Leona Lewis and The Rolling Stones.
