Take That fans are getting excited as the group seem to be teasing a new tour.

The official Take That band logo has been projected onto arenas and football stadiums all over the UK, which suggests that the band are going to be hitting the road soon.

The famous TT symbol has been spotted at The O2 in London, the Co-op Live Arena in Manchester, Carrow Road in Norwich, Ashton Gate in Bristol, Swansea.com Stadium, Home Park in Plymouth, Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium, and Stadium MK in Milton Keynes.

Whilst there has been no official announcement from Take That, Gary Barlow has shared the images on his Instagram Stories. “We all loved this,” he captioned one montage of pictures.

Some of the venues have been sharing the images on their own X (formerly Twitter) pages, including Plymouth’s Home Park, who also posted the zipped lips emoji.

One fan wrote: "So excited for this ❤️🎶"

Another added: "Yay!!!! @takethat ❤️❤️❤️🙌 So exciting!!!!!!"

A new tour wouldn’t be a massive surprise, given that Take That are set to release their new single, Window, tomorrow (22nd September). It will be their first new single in five years. Their last album, Wonderland, came out in 2017, and last year, Barlow confirmed that the band had begun working on their ninth studio album, and also spoke about the prospect of a 2024 world tour.

The English pop group currently consists of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen. The original line-up, of course, included Jason Orange and Robbie Williams.

Greatest Days, a jukebox musical movie featuring the band’s classic songs, landed in cinemas in June. Speaking exclusively to virginradio.co.uk at the world premiere, Mark Owen told us: “This film, in a strange way, brought us together as a band again. So, I know the story is about a reunion of these guys, but it also gave us a reason to get in a room again.”

He continued: “We hadn't seen each other for a few years. And so once you start that process, then it’s like, ‘Oh, when shall we book a studio? Shall we start writing?’, and so it started us up again. It's a nice thing.”
