Music: Take That Tickets Shut Down Websites!

Take That tickets went on sale this morning for the group’s 2011 Progress Live Tour to the UK and Ireland – and excited fans hunting tickets shut down most of the major websites in the process.

The reason for the intense interest is that this is the first concert tour the group has done since Robbie Williams left the group in the mid 1990s. Robbie has come back, and the group will be together on stage for the first time in over 16 years.

Take That, as a four piece group (sans Robbie) were hot property in 2009, as their tour sold out dates around Europe – and next year’s event looks to be no different.

An early problem with tickets websites Ticketmaster.co.uk and Seetickets.com that was presumed to be related to fans looking for Take That tickets continued throughout Friday 29 October beyond noon – with most major sites proving unable to cope with huge demand.

A spokesman for online ticket and events listing guide, IKnowWhereItsAt.com reports:

Most of the major ticket retailers have been offline, showing “site unavailable” messages throughout the morning, with many providing only intermittent access. Even those which we have used to buy tickets ourselves (fan-to-fan exchange Viagogo) has been reported to have dropped out from time-to-time as fans are going crazy trying to get their hands on Take That tickets. These are the hottest tickets in town right now!
