Press release

Robbie Williams announced his highly anticipated 2017 European stadium tour.

7th September 2017 Ledovi Dvorets Palace, St Petersburg, Russia

10th September 2017 Olympiski, Moscow, Russia

Erasure will be joining Robbie Williams on the tour as special guests.

Twenty-nine shows in eighteen countries are announced, opening with a date at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on June 2nd 2017. “The heavy entertainment show,” explains Robbie Williams, “is every single moment on earth – we’re all part of the heavy entertainment show.”

Even so, no one else has played their part quite as he has. Looking back at all his triumphs along the way, it’s sometimes hard to remember how improbable many of them were. Just a few of the brief highlights: In 1990, when he joined Take That as a sixteen-year-old, it was an era when British boy bands were considered passé, and he was their youngest and least polished member. When he fell out with, and of, the band in 1995 at the height of their success, he was considered an entertainingly wayward loose cannon but few had serious expectations that he would come to much. When the following year he went round to the leaky flat of an unsuccessful and unfeted songwriter, Guy Chambers, and they tried to write songs that might ignite his fledging solo career, no one except perhaps them imagined that the song they wrote, “Angels”, would be the first in a career-defining generational soundtrack: “Let Me Entertain You”, “Millennium”, “No Regrets”, “Rock DJ”, “Supreme”, “Eternity”, “Feel” and many, many others. Or that he would also emerge as the most acclaimed and charismatic live performer of his times, a position that was cemented and celebrated by his record-breaking 2003 Knebworth performances over three nights in front of 375,000 people. And, even despite his other successes, there was widespread scepticism when in 2001 he announced plans to release an album of swing songs, Swing When You’re Winning, based around music he had heard and loved in his childhood – it, and the accompanying filmed swing concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall, became two of his biggest successes, and opened up a new, part-time parallel career. Likewise when, in 2010, he decided to rejoin Take That for an album and a reunion tour, few could imagine that the resultant album, Progress, would become the fastest selling album in Britain of the century, or that the subsequent tour – in which he performed alone and alongside his reconciled bandmates – would be the biggest-selling British tour ever.

As a solo artist, Williams has sold more albums in the UK than any other British solo artist in history and has won more BRIT Awards than any other artist to date. His records sales stands at over 77 million worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. Williams was entered in The Guinness Book of World Records when, after he announced his World Tour for 2006, 1.6 million tickets were sold in one day. In 2004, he was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame, after being voted as the Greatest artist of the 1990s. On Monday 7 November Robbie will perform a special one-off show at The Troxy in London to celebrate receiving the prestigious BRITs Icon Award. The award is the highest accolade given by the BRIT Awards and has previously only been given to Elton John and David Bowie. It is only presented to artists whose writing, recording and performances have set them apart as having made a lasting impact on British culture, recognising the very highest level of achievement in music.

Tickets go on sale to the public from 10am GMT on Friday, 11 November via www.rw2017.ru
