Robbie Williams is to play the Aviva Stadium in Dublin next year as part of his new tour, the star has confirmed.

The singer made the announcement at a press conference on Friday at a press conference in Dublin on June 17.

Williams made his name with Take That before going on to become a phenomenally successfully solo career.

He has sold some 77million records in his time, and had 10 number one albums. He was also responsible for Ireland's biggest ever concert at Phoenix Park.

His new album, The Heavy Entertainment Show is released on November 4.

Williams described the album as "exciting" saying he wrote over 80 songs for it before whittling down to a select few.

Describing how he would watch the likes of Morecambe and Wise or 5,4,3,2,1 growing up he would ask how he could be on the television and that the album is a play on the light entertainment genre.

"I want to be this generation's Dusty Bin," he joked.

Making the announcement he also said his show in Belfast during the Swing tour was the "best" of the entire tour.

He also revealed he has recorded a new show with Kylie entitled Disco Symphony. The duo last had a hit with Kids.

"I don't know why the Irish love me," said the Angels hitmaker during the conference.

"Maybe it's because I'm f*cking great," he laughed.

Tickets for the The Heavy Entertainment Show will go on sale on Friday, November 11 at 10am on robbiewilliams.com.
