Legendary pop band Take That are coming to Southampton this weekend for two concerts at St Mary’s Stadium, for This Life On Tour.

The band are touring their ninth studio album and the band – consisting of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald – will be performing in Southampton for the first time in five years, having brought their greatest hits tour to the city for back-to-back evenings in 2019.

Whether you’re attending one of the gigs or hope to grab a last-minute ticket, here’s everything you need to know ahead of the concerts that you’ll Never Forget.

When is Take That coming to Southampton and what are the timings?

Take That will be at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2, supported by best-selling singer in his own right, Olly Murs.

Saturday’s show has already sold out, with a few standing tickets available for concert goers hoping to attend Sunday’s gig.

Doors to the venue will open at 5pm, though a food village situated outside the stadium will be available from 3pm.

Though times are subject to change, Olly Murs is expected to perform a compilation of his memorable tunes shortly after 7pm for around 45 minutes, before Take That headline the evening a little after 8.20pm.

Take That will be performing non-stop on stage for around two hours, with the evening drawing to a close at approximately 10.30pm.

Are there age restrictions for those attending the concert?

Children under the age of five are not allowed into the stadium and all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

No under 14s are allowed pitch standing tickets.

What’s the food village?

The food village is a series of stalls open from 3pm all around the stadium where audience members are able to buy a selection of food and drink items.

There is plenty on offer, from burgers, chicken, duck wraps, flatbreads, fish and chips, and ice cream – as well as additional vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

There are designated areas in the food village and concourse where alcoholic drinks can be purchased, though you may be asked to show your ID.

St Mary’s Stadium is a cashless venue, so audience members have been asked to plan accordingly as cash won’t be accepted.

Take That merchandise stands will also be on offer for fans to buy a selection of Take That branded gear, as well as a programme as a souvenir of the evening.
