Take That Concert, Budapest Park, 3 July
It's been over thirty years, but the time has finally come: one of the UK's most popular boy bands, Take That, in Hungary for the first time! Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen will perform at Budapest Park on 3 July 2024.

They will not only bring iconic hits from the last three decades such as Back For Good, Shine and Rule The World, but will also show us some new songs from their latest album called This Life, scheduled to be released in November.

Take That originated in Manchester in 1989, with the original lineup including Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams.

Their debut album, “Take That & Party,” was released in 1992 and achieved the second position in the UK album sales charts, even attaining double platinum status. The album went on to become the UK’s most successful. A little over a year later, they followed it up with “Everything Changes,” which reached the number one spot in the UK, garnering them international recognition and selling over 3 million copies worldwide.

In 1995, they released “Nobody Else,” which included hits such as “Back For Good,” “Sure,” and “Never Forget,” topping the charts in 11 countries. In the same year, Robbie Williams left the group, and at the height of their success, in February 1996, Take That announced their split.

A decade later, the four-piece Take That returned to the stage in 2006. In 2010, a song co-written by Barlow and Robbie Williams was released, marking a special moment as they hadn’t worked together since 1995. Shortly after, Williams announced his return to the group, reuniting with the original lineup to record “Progress,” which became the first album of the century to top the charts on its first day of release.

They also had the honour of performing at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Two years later, Robbie Williams and Jason Orange departed from the band, leaving Take That as a trio. After a six-year hiatus, Take That is gearing up to release a new album in November, followed by a UK and European tour titled “This Life – Under The Stars.”
