He was joined onstage by Geri Halliwell at the London gig in aid of Unicef...
ROBBIE WILLIAMS was joined onstage by GERI HALLIWELL and performed a brand new song, when he played a low-key show in front of an estimated 1,000 people in LONDON last night (February 8).
The show at Equinox nightclub had been shrouded in secrecy, with tickets only seemingly being available only through Deutsche Bank, who were sponsoring the event, and 30 pairs being given away in a competition through his official website.
According to fans at the show, the 1hr 40 minute set saw him play a brand new track, ‘Women’, which he introduced by saying it was a brand new song he wrote four days ago and adding: “I’ll play a song I know nothing about. This is ‘Women’.”
The set started with ‘Let Me Entertain You’ and also included his hits ‘No Regrets’, ‘Kids’ and ‘She’s The One’.
The set’s two encores were ‘Angels’ and ‘Rock DJ’, and near the end Geri, who is a close friend of Robbie, came on and gave him a kiss, to an enormous cheer.
Proceeds from the gig are being split between Unicef and Robbie’s own charitable fund, Give It Sum.
The show started at 8.15pm and finished just before 10pm.
As fans left the venue, they were unanimous in their praise. Niamh, 24, from London, said: “I saw him at London Arena a while ago and this was even better. There was an amazing atmosphere and he was on great form. The music was brilliant and everyone was jumping.”
Her friend Elena, 26, added: “You normally only ever see him in a big place, but seeing him in there was amazing, he was right in your face. And he was gorgeous!”
