Robbie Williams announces UK and Ireland tour to celebrate 25 years of solo artist | Ents & art news

Robbie Williams will tour the UK and Ireland this fall, celebrating 25 years since he began his solo career.

Williams, 48, started his career as part of the boy band Take That, but left the group in the summer of 1995 to go solo.

As a soloist, he has recorded 13 UK number one albums, making him one of the world’s most awarded artists.

His eight-stop tour in October includes performances in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin.

It comes a month after the release of his album XXV on September 9.

XXV features new songs and re-recorded versions of his greatest hits, such as Let Me Entertain You, Rock DJ and Millennium.

It also includes the latest version of his 1997 ballad Angels, which he performed Sunday half-time at Soccer Aid in London.

Speaking of the new album, Williams said, “Every song has a special place in my heart, so it was a real thrill to re-record them with the Metropole Orchestra.

“Can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
