Take That unveil tour with Williams

Robbie Williams and the other members of Take That have announced tour plans for the band

Take That have promised a "feast for the imagination" with their first tour as a complete group in 16 years.

The band's summer stadium tour around the UK, which kicks off next May, includes four nights at Wembley Stadium.

Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald confirmed the tour, Progress Live 2011, at a press conference in London on Tuesday morning.

The last time the five-piece performed together was in 1995.

The 14-date UK tour will be followed by six dates in Europe, and the gigs will feature Take That's biggest hits from the past two decades.

It will also see Williams, who rejoined his old band-mates earlier this year after they reunited without him in 2005, perform songs from his solo career.

Progress Live 2011 is billed as a "feast for the imagination, charting the evolution and progress of Take That and Robbie Williams through their extraordinary 20-year history".

UK tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday.

The band won the Hall of Fame gong at the Q Awards on Monday, where they made their first public appearance since Williams rejoined, and they are set to feature in a new ITV1 programme documenting their reunion.

The newly restored line-up are making their comeback with a single The Flood and album Progress, both due out next month.
