Take That's Mark Owen has confirmed which two bandmates will not be returning for the group's new live tour and album, which both arrive next year.
Mark Owen has revealed that himself, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald will press on with this tour without Robbie Williams and Jason Orange, with Williams revealing that he has been struggling to find the time for the group, following the release of his latest album XXV.
"I would love for it to happen in the future but I think this next record will be the three of us", Owen said. “We don’t need to talk about whether he will come back — it’s like this intuition thing", Owen said.
“He might — if he knows we are in the studio — come down and get involved somewhere, maybe in the writing, because that’s just how it happens".
The tour will also not include Jason Orange, who has left the public spotlight, following his Take That departure in 2014. However, Mark Owen has not given up hope that Orange may return to the band in the future.
“He might — if he knows we are in the studio — come down and get involved somewhere, maybe in the writing, because that’s just how it happens", Owen stated.
