The release of reunited boyband Take That’s new single and tickets for their 2011 UK tour has caused the band to move up our TellYouGov leaderboard, suggesting that many of the fans among our panel are very happy with the five-piece’s new offerings. Notwithstanding, the band has also received a fair amount of criticism, although most of the negativity has been directed at the lack of available tickets for their tour as opposed to at the band directly.

  • The volume score has increased by 29 points to 78.
  • Their sentiment rating has increased by 29 points to a very respectable 50

The release of former bandmates Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams’s joint single Shame earlier this year ignited rumours that a Take That reunion was imminent, and sure enough, on July 15th Williams put an end to the speculation and made many fans’ year by announcing that he was indeed re-joining Take That, 14 years after he officially left. The Flood is the first single featuring all five members since 1996 and has certainly proven popular; when tickets for the new UK tour, called Progress Live 2011, were released last month, ticket websites and phone networks crashed under the weight of the demand.

The Flood was released on November 7th and the new album is to follow on November 15th.
