Robbie Williams: "F**k Glasto, This Is Where It's At!"
REVIEW: Robbie & pal Olly Murs 'Take The Crown' to Wembley Stadium...
Sunday, June 30, 2013 - 11:05
For those who thought that getting married and becoming a father for the first time would have tamed Robbie Williams, think again!
The formerTake Thatstar is back on the road in support of his ninth studio album Olly Mursalong for the ride.
With Olly powering his way through a stellar set, including hit singles Take That track Justin Bieber, Robbie was on fine form. Speaking of Biebs, Williams joked: "Someday, this will all be Justin Bieber's dream... I don't think so! He's a good singer and he's got a lovely haircut... I should shut up now before I get into too much trouble." However, Robbie did anything but shut up, even making reference to this weekend's Glastonbury Festival, stating: "F**k Glasto, this is where it's at!"
Sweat Factor: By the end of Let Me Entertain You, Robbie had already broken out in a sweat, with the crowd feeling the heat as Wembley basked in some rather unlikely sunshine thanks to the unpredictable British weather. Temperatures also reached boiling point as Robbie and Olly showed off their hip-swinging moves - sending the huge amounts of women wild.
Summary: Robbie proved what a true showman he is, well and truly taking back the pop crown with outstanding production, impressive visuals and a set list boasting of hit song after hit song. Robbie took a risk by performing acoustic versions of some well-known classics, but it was nice to see a more mellow side to Williams, but there was still plenty of room for more hip-thrusting and dad dancing - which also went down a treat with the crowd. They hung on to his every word and staying true to his earlier statement, he truly 'owned' Wembley.
In the words of Robbie himself: "I was famous in the 90s and I still sell Wembley", and we're sure he'll still be entertaining you, us and the world for many years to come.
