What everyone was waiting for - THE BAND is now officially open for business and the tour is underway. Celebs and fans flocked to the press night on 26 September 2017 and were treated not only to the show itself, but also to a performance from Take That...with a little help from Lulu! 

During the speeches it was also announced that the tour will be extended by a year and judging by all the glowing reviews it's getting, we're not surprised!

Check out the official video from press night. Catch up with the cast, chat with the celebs and see snippets of Take That & Lulu perform. Plus, check out the faces of the cast as they find out the tour is extended! 

THE BAND is a musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.

THE BAND is directed by Kim Gavin and Jack Ryder, designed by Jon Bausor and choreographed by Kim Gavin. It is produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams.
