TAKE THAT are busy rehearsing for their record-breaking tour - but at least one member is also looking ahead to after the stadium shows.
HOWARD DONALD has booked in huge gigs DJing in Ibiza this summer after getting the call from dance don JUDGE JULES.
Manning the decks will certainly give Howard's aching limbs a break.
Howard - most famous for his slick dance moves and vocals on Never Forget - will spin house music at superclub Eden just three weeks after the band's last Progress Live date in Munich.
His Judgement Sundays bookings, starting on August 21, put him up there among big-name DJs such as MARCO V, EDDIE HALLIWELL, FERRY CORSTEN and Judge Jules himself.
So far Howard has two nights lined up at Eden's room 2 but is likely to be looking around for other bookings on the White Isle.
A source says: "Howard's been DJing for years now after taking it up when he was in the wilderness after the group's split in 1996.
"At first he wasn't taken very seriously but now he's well respected.
"He's focused on the tour right now but is also excited about these DJ dates.
"To get the call from Judge Jules is a big deal.
"He'll be playing alongside huge names from house and techno but it will certainly be a different story to live shows with his group."
Howard, often known as DJ HD, will switch from playing 80,000-seat stadiums with huge production and screaming fans to a sweaty room with a bassy PA system and bongoed blokes with their tops off.
Bandmates JASON ORANGE, GARY BARLOW, ROBBIE WILLIAMS and MARK OWEN are already fans of Howard's dance production, which he works on alongside the DJing.
On their last Take That tour they played one of his remixes during the show.
With their latest album Progress being more dance-influenced than ever, you can bet Howard will try to slip some TT remixes into his DJ sets too.
