Stadium tour for Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams has announced he is planning a stadium tour

Robbie Williams has announced a European stadium tour - to seal his place "in pop history".

The star, 38, said it was "legacy time" and he was going to put on a tour of "great magnitude while I still can".

He said he had been "lethargic" with his last couple of albums but the birth of his daughter and his reunion with Take That had re-invigorated him.

"The rumours are true. I'm getting Robbie Williams back together again", the Angels star joked.

The tour - his first full tour for more than six years - kicks off in Manchester next June before travelling to Glasgow and London's Wembley Stadium.

X Factor star Olly Murs will be supporting Robbie on the 15-date tour.

Speaking at a press conference in a London hotel, Robbie said: "I'm buzzing. I'm ready to go. I haven't done a tour of this size since 2006.

"I believe that I'm at the place in my career where it's time to put my foot down and go 'This is what I do'. It's legacy time for me.

"I'm getting my handicap down in golf and all that business. I'm nearly 40, that's what I'm trying to say. I don't know how many times I will get given this opportunity... I want to go and seal my place in pop history."

He said he wanted to do a tour "of great magnitude while I still can" and "while people are still interested in seeing it".

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
