Robbie Williams prefaces his UK tour with a date tonight (October 6)...

Robbie Williams plays a low-key warm-up gig at READING RIVERMEAD tonight (October 6) – and fans have been queuing outside the venue since lunchtime today.

The gig, which will see Robbie play material from his chart-topping album ‘Sing When You’re Winning’ before he embarks on his stadium tour of the UK on Monday (October 9) at Birmingham NEC, sold out within 90 minutes of going on sale.

Robbie is supported tonight, and on the rest of the tour dates, by Crispian Mills.

Williams commences his full UK tour on Monday, which calls at: Birmingham NEC (October 9-14) Glasgow SECC (16-18) Newcastle Arena (20-21) Manchester Arena (23-28) London Docklands Arena (October 31-November 6)
