Robbie Williams announces greatest hits tour to mark 25-year solo career
Robbie Williams has announced a huge arena tour to celebrate 25 years as a solo artist.
The singer, formerly of Manchester-formed pop group Take That, will perform two massive gigs here this October.
His new UK and Ireland tour comes in support of new album XXV, which will be released on 9 September.
The album is a collection of brand new songs, greatest hits and fan favourites, all re-recorded and newly orchestrated with the Metropole Orkest.
Robbie already released his new version of iconic single Angels, and performed it during the half-time show at Soccer Aid.
Songs including Let Me Entertain You, Rock DJ, Millennium, She’s The One and Come Undone will all make the tracklist too.
Robbie Williams has recored six of the top 100 best-selling albums in British history, selling 80 million albums worldwide.
He’s also achieved 14 number one singles and a record-breaking 18 BRIT awards.
Combined with his years spent with Take That, the Stoke-born singer is in the top three acts of all time for number ones.
The XXV tour will take Robbie to London’s O2 Arena, as well as venues in Birmingham, Glasgow, and Dublin, as well as Manchester’s own AO Arena.
