More than 100 Take That fans have been admitted to hospital following the popular British boyband’s Manchester, England tour dates.

Rowdy fans of the pop group, described as ‘worse than football fans’ by stewards, stretched hospital resources at the local Manchester Royal Infirmary where 160 extra patients were admitted with issues ranging from broken bones to alcohol poisoning.

A doctor at the hospital told The Telegraph, “we saw an increase from people who’d been at the Take That concerts”, with the majority of patients being middle-aged women.

Mayhem at Take That concerts is nothing new for the city. 160 injuries represent a mere 10% increase from the last time Take That was in town.

With over half-a-million concertgoers visiting during the band’s Manchester dates, police have deemed the concert a success, with just 22 reports of crime in or near the concert venue.

Take That shot to prominence after dominating the UK charts in 1990 and went on to achieve eleven No.1 singles in the UK Charts. After breaking up in 1996, the band reformed in 2005 and have continued their domination of the UK pop scene with their 2010 album ‘Progress’ which became the fastest selling album of the century in the UK.

Take That also recorded the official single for ‘X-Men: First Class’, “Love Love.”
