Greatest Days sets Scottish Dates in August 2023

Tickets have gone on sale for the only Scottish dates of the hit Take That musical Greatest Days, at the Playhouse from 28 August – 2 September 2023 immediately after a week at the Glasgow King’s.

Greatest Days features more than 15 record-breaking Take That songs, alongside a heart-warming and hilarious story of love, loss and laughter from award-winning writer Tim Firth. Tickets for Edinburgh are on sale here and Glasgow here.

Greatest Days is the new name for the smash hit show The Band, which was at the Playhouse in 2018 (★★★★★ Popstastic) which broke box office records and toured around the United Kingdom from 2017 – 2019.

The musical follows a group of five best friends in the 1990’s who are obsessed with their favourite boy band. The girls reunite more than 20 years later with a plan to see their heartthrobs one last time in what could be one of the Greatest Days of their lives.

The show will embark on a major UK and Ireland tour from 5 May 2023, coinciding with the summer 2023 release of the official movie version of this smash-hit musical, starring Aisling Bea and Jayde Adams. Greatest Days also celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Take That’s first ever UK Number 1 single Pray.

Greatest Days was originally produced as The Band by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers + Take That. The UK tour of The Band originally opened at Manchester Opera House on 8 September 2017 and closed in March 2019, breaking box office records along the way. The new production is produced by Bill Kenwright.

Take That said: “We are so thrilled that this new production, now titled Greatest Days, is launching next year. We had an enormous amount of fun working on the original version and can’t wait to help bring this new production to over 30 cities across the UK and Ireland from May 2023.”

Writer Tim Firth has previously collaborated with Take That’s Gary Barlow on Calendar Girls The Musical, as well as co-creating and directing Barlow’s one man show, A Different Stage.

Casting for the new tour will be announced at a future date.
