Robbie Williams announces tour to celebrate 25 years as solo artist

Robbie Williams will tour the UK and Ireland this autumn marking 25 years since he began his solo career.

Williams, 48, began his career as part of the boyband 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 decorated artists.

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

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

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 during half-time at Soccer Aid in London on Sunday.

Speaking of the new album, Williams said: “Each track has a special place in my heart so it was a real thrill to record them again with the Metropole Orkest.”
