The 90s party boy and pop titan hits arenas in support of new album
Pop music’s cantankerous uncle Robbie Williams is preparing to hit the road this winter with a tour of UK arenas. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 June. Find a detailed list of his tour dates at the bottom of this article.
The shows come partly in support of his new album XXV, set for release on Friday 9 September via Columbia Records, which sees him reimagining his biggest hits to mark 25 years since establishing himself as a solo artist.
Williams said, ‘I'm so excited to announce my new album XXV which celebrates many of my favourite songs from the past 25 years. Each track has a special place in my heart, so it was a real thrill to record them again with the Metropole Orkest. Can't wait for you all to hear it.’
As a teaser for the new album, Williams has released a reworked version of ‘Angels’, with brand new vocals and an expansive string and horn arrangement. The album will include 19 tracks, including new song ‘Lost’. Three new songs will also be included in the album’s deluxe edition, alongside seven more reimagined hits, including ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ‘Millennium’, ‘Strong’, ‘No Regrets’, ‘She’s The One’, ‘Kids’, ‘Rock DJ’, ‘Feel’ and ‘Come Undone’.
Williams’ tour will take a similarly celebratory approach to his past work. Starting at The O2 in London on Sunday 9 October and Monday 10 October, the UK leg of the tour will then hit Birmingham's World Resorts Arena on Saturday 15 October, Manchester's AO Arena on Wednesday 19 October and Friday 21 October, and Glasgow's OVO Hydro on Monday 24 October and Tuesday 25 October.
