COMEBACK KID: Williams will broadcast his Tallinn show live around the world.
Now celebrating 20 years in the music business, Robbie Williams is one of the UK’s most successful musical exports of all time. With millions of records sold and such universally recognized hits as “Angels” and “Rock DJ” under his belt, there is no one who comes close to touching this outstanding artist.
Today, Williams announced that ten years after the legendary Knebworth recordings, this summer’s Take the Crown tour will be filmed on Aug. 20 only in Tallinn, Estonia.
It will be his only concert in the region since making his huge comeback – he won’t be performing in Stockholm or Helsinki, Vilnius or Riga, Moscow or St. Petersburg.
Robbie kicked off the new Take the Crown Stadium Tour in Dublin, which is his first solo stadium tour since 2006.
In July it was revealed that Robbie’s upcoming show in Tallinn will be broadcast live into cinemas around the world, on Aug. 20.
Moreover, “Robbie Williams – Live in Tallinn” will be shot at Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, a unique and historic open-air venue on the picturesque seaside of the capital of Estonia. On the day of Robbie’s performance, Estonia also celebrates its Restoration of Independence Day.
“I have never been to Estonia and I am excited to film my brilliant show on the Restoration of Independence Day,” Williams said.
Robbie is the first major international performer to film his concert in Tallinn – a special occasion for all his fans to be a part of music history. “Robbie Williams – Live in Tallinn” will be directed by Russell Thomas and Peeter Rebane. Rebane commented on the news: “We are very excited that Tallinn will be the only show to be filmed on Robbie’s new tour. Estonia’s Re-independence Day will definitely add a very special feeling to this night.”
Previously, his tour “Close Encounters” reached a world record - more than 1.6 million tickets were sold on the first day when tickets were released.
The singer announced that it is a new brightness in his career. The album “Take the Crown” was released in November, with the song “Candy” taking first place as the most popular record in UK. Twenty-two years ago he made his debut with the band “Take That,” and in 1996 started his solo career, which so far has been impressive.
Williams has sold over 70 million records worldwide, which ranks him among the best-selling musical artists worldwide. He is the best-selling British solo artist in the United Kingdom and the best-selling non-Latino artist in Latin America. Six of his albums are among the top 100 biggest-selling albums in the United Kingdom. He has also been honored with seventeen BRIT Awards — more than any other artist — and seven ECHO Awards. In 2004, he was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame after being voted as the “Greatest Artist of the 1990s.” In Williams’ discography there are a few tens of hits, which are widely popular around the world, such as “Feel,” Angels,” “Millennium, “Let Me Entertain You,” “Kids,” “Supreme,” “Rock DJ” and many others.
In one of his interviews Robbie said: “I’ve got such a buzz out of playing live again this year. The shows we have done have reminded me how special it is to play my songs in front of a huge audience, with all the excitement and adrenaline that it can bring. Bring on 2013!”
Pop singer Olly Murs, confirmed as a special guest, said: “Everyone knows I am a huge fan of Robbie, and I’m honored to call him my friend. He’s been a huge inspiration to me and given me so much advice throughout my career. When he asked me to join him on tour I was over the moon!”
