Robbie Williams: ‘Ego will make me quit Take That again’

Singer suggests he will restart his solo career after tour ends

Robbie Williams has said that his ‘ego’ will make him leave Take That for the second time.

The Sun reports that the singer admitted that he wanted to restart the solo career he gave up to work with the band again on 2010’s ‘Progress’ album.

He said: “The gigs have been absolutely amazing – the best period of my career so far with those boys. Sharing it with somebody is much better than doing it by yourself, but then ego, want, need and a whole heap of other things kick in.


“And you start preparing for your own tour… and the other boys are going away for a bit and I don’t really know what’s on the cards with them. But we have to ride again, we have to – it’s too much fun.”

Last month the singer admitted he would be doing a solo tour again.

On his blog he wrote: “There will be a solo tour and I’m not sure where I’ll be going yet.”

He added: “I am aware that there is a perception in certain quarters and I’m enjoying throwing that perception down people’s throats when I jump through the wall on L.M.E.Y [‘Let Me Entertain You’].

“I’ve never felt more on my game and it’s thanks, in part, to the naysayers. They put fire in my belly and, in turn, a smile on my face. When the tickets go on sale for my next tour I think we’ll see what ‘dwindling’ looks like.”

His last solo album was 2010’s ‘best of’ ‘In And Out Of Consciousness: Greatest Hits 1990–2010’.
