London: Members of the English pop band Take That have decided to ban backstage booze when they start their tour in 2011.
The band has an epic 54-date tour in place for the next year.
Member Mark Owen has been battling with alcohol addiction since March after he confessed to ten drunken affairs.
Singer Robbie Williams has been fighting with his drinking problem since years being in and out of rehab.
“The boys have had time together over the last week working on the new video. They have had a chance to sit down and discuss plans for next year. It`s a sensitive subject but booze will be off limits for the band and the crew,” a news daily quoted a source as saying.
“The Circus Tour was one giant party and, for Mark and Robbie’s sake, that just won’t work this time round,” the source added.
