Phil Lunn :
Take That On Tour With Volkswagen Van


Phil Lunn :
The British pop band, Take That, have chosen a Volkswagen van - the Caravelle to use on their current European tour promoting their new album, Beautiful World.

The Volkswagen Caravelle is the perfect people carrier to take on tour, not least because the middle row of seats can swivel to face the rear. This creates a sociable lounge area with a multi-functional table for Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange to relax in before and after each concert.

‘The Caravelle is stylish, comfortable and safe,’ commented Gary Barlow. Many other artists, including the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Chris de Burgh, have also found the Volkswagen Caravelle a popular choice for their recent tours.

Apart from being the chosen vehicle for celebrities, the Volkswagen Caravelle is equally at home as a family vehicle or luxury limousine with seven seats, luxury SE and Executive specifications and the choice of 130 PS or 174 PS TDI diesel engines.

Full details of the Take That Beautiful World Tour are available at; for information on the Caravelle, please visit
