Still per­form­ing in our 70s like the Stones? We’d take that, says Gary

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Femail -

IT’S a re­mark­able 27 years since they first took to the stage as a fresh-faced boy band.

But de­spite hav­ing millions in the bank, Take That have re­vealed they have no plans to hang up their mi­cro­phones and slip away into a com­fort­able re­tire­ment.

In fact – just like The Rolling Stones – they plan to keep per­form­ing right into their 70s.

In an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with to­day’s Event mag­a­zine, Gary Bar­low de­clares: ‘I think [the Stones] are bloody amaz­ing and I’d like to see us still per­form­ing at that age. I’d do it with pride.’

Gary, 46, and band­mates Mark Owen, 45, and Howard Don­ald, 48, will cel­e­brate the 25th an­niver­sary of their first al­bum with a tour later this year – and Mark hints that orig­i­nal mem­bers Rob­bie Wil­liams and Ja­son Or­ange could join them.

Mark says: ‘He [Ja­son] is still part of the band – we keep him in the loop. I still think he’ll be back for the an­niver­sary tour.

‘I think Rob­bie will be back for it too.’
