Take That are a BRIT Award-winning English pop band. Gary Barlow is the group's main songwriter. Each member primarily performs vocals, though each has some instrumental/songwriting capability. The band achieved major success in the early to mid 1990s as a five person boyband act, with Robbie Williams. The current lineup reformed without Williams in 2005 and achieved new success as a four-piece.
Formed in Manchester in 1990, Take That sold more than 19 million records between 1991?96. Take That's dance-oriented pop tunes and soulful ballads dominated the UK charts in the first half of the 1990s, spawning two of the best selling albums of the decade with Everything Changes (which was nominated for the 1994 Mercury Prize) and Greatest Hits 1996, and according to Allmusic, "at this time were giant superstars in Europe with the main question about them not being about whether they could get a hit single, but how many and which would make it to number one".
The band split up in 1996, but after a 2005 documentary and the release of a new greatest hits album, they officially announced a 2006 reunion tour around the United Kingdom, entitled The Ultimate Tour. On 9 May 2006, it was announced that Take That were set to record their first studio album in over ten years, which was eventually released as Beautiful World. The band have released a second post-reunion studio album entitled The Circus and have completed their Circus Live tour 2009.
