A TRIBUTE show celebrating three decades of one of the world's greatest boybands is coming to Weymouth Pavilion on Thursday, February 20.

Despite being on the road for almost 10 years, the Take That Experience continues to wow audiences with their authentic vocals, replica costumes and electrifying dance routines.

"We never get tired of performing these incredible songs," says Tom Vaughan, 34, who takes the role of Robbie Williams. "I think that's a testament to the music of Take That. Our show has evolved as the band has evolved, and it's been a phenomenal experience."

Initially an actor, Tom has appeared in Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks, and was at first reluctant to be part of the show.

"My agent was really insistent but I wasn't interested at all," Tom recalls. "When I did finally take the part, I thought I'd be there a year, maybe two. I never imagined I'd be spending such a large part of my life doing something like this."

Sometimes on the road for several weeks at a time, Tom describes the tour schedule as "full on."

"We've basically not stopped for a decade," he continues. "There's a level of fitness you have to maintain and sometimes you have to accept that you're going to be tired, but as soon as we hear the roar of the crowd something clicks, and all the tiredness fades away. As far as the audience are concerned, we are Take That."

Off the stage, however, the group are actually "quite boring people."

"The five of us having a cup of tea together after the show is about as rock and roll as it gets," Tom jokes.

What stands out is the mix of demographics that attend their shows. "We have a fantastic following," Tom says. "There's a real mix of ages, some younger people who are experiencing Take That for the first time, as well as fans who have grown up with them. We also have a core group of followers that come to every show we do."

Having lost a superman toy when he visited Weymouth Sealife Centre as a six year old, Tom is hoping to come away with some more positive memories of the seaside town. "Or maybe I'll be reunited him with him 20 years later. Imagine that!"

The Take That Experience begins at 7.30pm. All tickets are £24, available from the pavilion website or by contacting the box office.
