Take That to provide boost to North East tourism

North East tourism bosses have said that Take That will provide a big boost to tourism in the region, with the band set to kick-off their UK tour on Friday May 27th.

Gary Barlow and the boys will perform at Sunderland's Stadium of Light on four separate dates before heading on to entertain those booking Manchester hotels over eight gigs starting on Friday June 3rd.

Furthermore, the North East is also playing host to the Newcastle Evolution festival this weekend.

"The way to change people’s perceptions of the region is to get them to come visit, because we know the more they see it, the more they’ll realise they like it. It’s a great combination to have Take That and the Evolution festival coinciding, as concerts like that are essential for bringing in first time visitors," chief executive of the NewcastleGateshead Initiative Sarah Stewart told the Journal.

Take That will also be going on to play in Glasgow, Dublin and at London's Wembley Stadium.
