Take That star Howard Donald has spoken of his nerves ahead of the band’s reunion stadium tour, which kicks off tonight.
The band will play Croke Park on June 19.
The group are due to begin a sell-out tour, which will see them perform to more than a million fans in the UK and Ireland.
The tour, which starts at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, is the band’s first with Robbie Williams restored to the line-up, after his 1995 departure.
Donald said that, despite the excitement of the shows, he was “nervous as well”.
“Things are coming together now, but it’s when you’ll have any technical issues,” he said. “Things have to flow, and if you want to think hard about it, there is a lot you can worry about."
Bandmate Jason Orange said he was “hugely” excited about the shows, which begin at Sunderland’s Stadium Of Light. And he is trying to avoid worrying.
“It’ll be reet. It always is,” he said.
Take That are currently in the top 40 with their single 'Love Love' from the new 'X-Men: First Class' movie.
The group’s main songwriter, Gary Barlow, said it would be the sole track from their forthcoming collection of new songs, Progressed, which will feature during the tour.
“It’s the only one from the new batch that we play live,” he said.
