Robbie Williams – a world star comes to the stage
There are few British singers who enjoy such immense success as this attractive powerhouse from Stoke-on-Trent, England. Whether you already loved him as part of one of the most successful boy bands, prefer his stamina as a solo artist, or simply love the entire package, you can indulge either way with tickets for Robbie Williams, which you can now easily purchase on StubHub.
Take That, international success and the launch of a solo career
Success entered early for Williams, as he became Take That’s youngest band member at only sixteen years old. When looking back to him as a fresh-faced singer of the successful boy group, it is understandable that he instantly became heartthrob material. Joining the band in 1990, he quit in 1995 to focus on himself, much to the dismay of his many international fans. However, Take That’s time had not run out yet, as they regrouped in 2010 to release their hit album "Progress", which promptly became the second-fastest selling album in the history of Great Britain. The band still enjoys a great reputation and played at the closing ceremony of the Games in summer 2012 in London. But Williams’ success is not solely tied to the boy band. Ever since his first hiatus with the group in 1995, he has enjoyed an immensely-successful solo career, too. His first single was a cover version of the song "Freedom" by George Michael and it soared up to no. 2 in the UK single charts. His rough but melodic voice can give gravitas to pop and oldies, a talent he proved when he ventured into swing with his successful album "Swing When You’re Winning". The album reached no. 1 in the UK album charts and features covers of famous songs like "It Was A Very Good Year" and "Something Stupid", which he sang in duet with Nicole Kidman. Whether a pinch of swing or his more pop-centred albums like "Rudebox", you can hear a selection of his greatest songs and his latest stuff with tickets for Robbie Williams, on sale on StubHub.
An award-winning pop and swing singer
Williams’ career in music has been truly record-breaking and he has received numerous awards for his contributions. Among them he netted an MTV Europe Music Award in the category Best Male, various Brit Awards and also made it into the Guinness Book of World Records by selling 1.6 million tickets in just one day for his 2006 tour. He has also collaborated with plenty of other musicians, including Michael Bublé, Lily Allen and Kelly Clarkson.
