Take That were forced to cancel a gig in Copenhagen last night (July 16) after Robbie Williams became "violently ill" with food poisoning.

The group were due to play at the city's Parken Stadium but pulled the plug after doctors insisted that the singer was not fit to perform.

In a statement on their official Facebook page, the band said they originally considered playing the gig without Williams.

"In the end we felt that as this tour is about the five of us being back together, and about celebrating that reunion, it would be wrong to go ahead with the show," they commented.

"This is the first show that we have ever had to cancel in our career as a band. It was a horrible decision to make and one we agonised over," the band added.

Take That are due to continue the tour at Amsterdam Arena tomorrow (18). There's been no word from the band on whether Williams will be well enough to perform.
