Speaking to NME at a press conference in London on Monday (November 7), Williams said of Gallagher: “He knows exactly what he wants and how he wants to do it. He’s steadfast with all of that. Is he writing it by himself? I’ve been watching the stuff that he’s been doing as regards to the new documentary [Supersonic].”
“I think he’s been incredibly funny, incredibly charismatic, really watchable,” Robbie added. “I’ve got a bit of a man crush on him at the moment actually. I’m looking forward to his album.”
Meanwhile, last night saw the long-awaited and often rumoured reunion of Williams with former boyband Take That. The band came back together as Williams performed a special show at London’s Troxy, to celebrate and accept Williams’ BRITs Icon Award.
Towards the end of the set, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen joined the ‘Party Like A Russian’ and ‘Rock DJ’ star on stage to run through the classic ‘Want You Back For Good’, however the departed Jason Orange was not in attendance.
Williams is also among the acts rumoured to play Glastonbury after the announcement of his UK and Ireland stadium tour seems to coincide with the Worthy Farm event.
Robbie Williams’ upcoming UK tour dates are below. Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday (November 11).
