Take That said: “We are so thrilled that this new production now titled ‘Greatest Days’ is launching next year. We had an enormous amount of fun working on the original version and can’t wait to help bring this new production to over 30 cities across the UK and Ireland from May 2023.”
The musical follows a group of five best friends in the 1990’s who are obsessed with their favourite boy band. The girls then reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time in what could be the Greatest Days of their lives.
Greatest Days includes more than 15 of Take That’s classic songs. The show was originally produced as The Band by David Pugh & Daffyd Rogers, plus Take That and toured in 2017 to 2019, including a run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket at Christmas 2018.
