Robbie’s plans £10mn comeback

LONDON: British pop singer Robbie Williams is planning to stage a 10 million-pound comeback tour and hopes to establish himself as the king of pop. The Angels singer has decided against joining his old band Take That in favour of a series of solo performances at London’s O2 arena next year, the same venue where Michael Jackson is doing 50 shows later this year, reported

“He wants to blow Michael Jackson and Take That out of the water with his comeback tour. It’s going to be huge. He wants these shows to help re-establish him as the king of pop,” said a source. “Robbie has been itching to get back in front of a live audience since he started writing his new album two years ago. He is planning to put on a super show to win back all the fans he has lost,” added the source.

Following the lukewarm reception of his 2006 album Rudebox, the 35-year-old has spent two years writing new material.
