Take That said, “GREATEST DAYS is a film dedicated to all those who have supported us throughout the years. It puts a mirror on our audience – it’s a celebration of our music but it’s literally all about the fans and their friendships. Our fans have been on a 30-year journey with us and we have an incredibly strong bond with them, so seeing that they will be represented on screen by such a strong, talented cast is incredibly exciting.” Yes , 30 years!! Now when we were kids Take That! was the sort of thing you said when you were playing at being superheroes when you thwacked someone in the mouth.
