In 2011 Take That embarked on the biggest tour the UK and Ireland had ever seen, breaking all previous records. The Progress Live Tour went through 29 UK stadiums and played to over 1.8 million people. The double disc blu-ray includes the band’s entire epic-live show and a bonus disc featuring exclusive behind the scenes footage, filmed across the 29 UK dates, giving a unique insight into life on the road of one of the most successful bands in UK history.
Named after the three-million-plus selling Progress album that reunited them, the Progress Live 2011 tour, was the first time the band had toured together as a five-piece (Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams) since 1995. The tour's huge production included roller skating bees, a giant purple caterpillar, shaolin monks, dancing chess pieces, a massive 75 foot wall of water, scaled by acrobatic, gravity defying dancers, a huge 60 foot robot nick-named OM who moved down through the audience throughout the set. The entire set was presided over by the "‘big man", a massive head and shoulder structure with lasers for eyes, 150 feet above, looking out over the crowds on the top of the stage.
