Take That become academia subject

Salford University organises two days conference on the Fab Five

Take That have become the subject of a two days conference organised by Salford University.

The event, which takes place June 3d and 4th - a week after the band kick off their UK tour - is described by the organisers as "an interdisciplinary conference examining the theme of break-up and reunion in popular music acts, focusing on Take That".

The university will discuss the group's reunion's enormous success.

The event is led by Salford University musicology professor Tim Wise and will also feature a pre-digital fan culture exhibition.
