...as Take That line up stadium return

Robbie Williams (36) is expected to storm the stage at Croke Park next summer -- as a part of Take That.

Now that the newly married star has joined forces again with his old bandmates, it's full steam ahead for their new tour.

And the Herald can reveal they are expected to include the northside venue as part of their eagerly-awaited tour next summer.

"Robbie always said he would play again at Croke Park after his gig in 2006 where he said he wasn't happy with the sound quality.

"And when Take That played there last summer, it was one of the best concerts of the year," said a source.

But fans will need to be quick to get their hands on a ticket to a possible Croke Park gig, as it may be a once-off.

Both Robbie and Gary Barlow have hinted that their reunion might not be permanent after all.

They have admitted that after working together for the next 18 months, they may decide to go their separate ways.

Gary and Robbie have recorded a new single together called Shame, which hit the airwaves this week but said their only plans are for an album and live shows.

Asked about their future together, Gary said: "I don't know the answer to that. We agreed when we started to do a one-off album and maybe a one-off tour would be a great thing this year.

"We are talking about a tour right now, so hopefully next summer we will tour."

He added: "But I think once we've done that, Rob will go back to being Rob, we'll go back to being a four. I think it will resume to how it was."

Speaking about his plans, Robbie said he was going to play it by ear for now.

"The thing is, the door is open to do whatever we want. We've got 18 months planned. Whatever happens after, whatever happens after that.

No dates for their mooted tour have yet been confirmed -- but they will almost certainly include one date, or even two, in Dublin.

Gary and Robbie will perform together for the first time in 15 years at the charity Heroes concert at Twickenham Stadium in London on September 12.
