UK boy band Take That to perform in Israel
Take that, Tel Aviv! 90s pop sensation will give one show on November 27; three of the group's original five members are to perform in a nostalgia-filled evening that is likely to relight my fire, and yours.

Famed British pop band Take That—whose nineties heyday may be said to have been long passed—will appear in Tel Aviv's Menora Mivtachim Arena on November 27.

 

 

Their Israel performance will be another stop on their world tour promoting the band's latest offering, Wonderland, which came out last March. Only one Israeli performance has been booked thus far.

Take That is currently comprised of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen. The band was founded in Manchester in 1990, and its original lineup also included Jason Orange and, more notably, Robbie Williams—who went on to a successful solo career. The band broke up in 1996 after the latter's exit. 

 

During its six-year existence, the band was considered one of Britain's most successful and popular acts. Their breakthrough hit came with 1992's "It only takes a minute", a cover of the 1975 Tavares hit, scoring another hit with Barry Manilow's "Could it be magic."

Their third album, titled Nobody Else, was released in 1995 and included one of the band's—and decade's—biggest hits: "Back for good."

 

This performance comes near the tail end of an excellent year for music fans in Israel, with Britney Spears, Gun N' Roses and Radiohead all performing in the country earlier in 2017.

 

Another nineties boy band sensation, the Backstreet Boys, performed in Israel in 2015. With Take That now on the horizon, could nineties luminaries NSYNC be far behind? Only time will tell.
