Robbie Williams has announced that he will perform live in London this New Year’s Eve.
The pop star will appear at Westminster’s Central Hall for Robbie Rocks Big Ben Live. The show will take place both before the countdown to midnight and afterwards.
The gig will be broadcast live on BBC One, as Stereoboard reports, while a limited number of tickets are available for the performance. They go on sale at 9am on December 9.
Williams recently released his latest album ‘Heavy Entertainment Show’, which shot straight in at Number One in the UK albums chart. It is his 12th Number One album.
His eleventh studio record notched up 67,000 combined sales to reach the top, pushing him past David Bowie to make him the British solo artist with the most chart topping albums in the UK. He also equals Madonna’s record in the UK but he is one album behind Elvis.
Since topping the chart with his debut solo record ‘Life Thru A Lens’ back in 1998, 10 of his 11 studio records have reached the top spot, in addition to his two greatest hits collections.
Williams told OfficialCharts.com: “I’m chuffed that this album is Number One and I’m humbled by these amazing statistics and facts. Thank you to the wonderful, wonderful team at Sony.
“I’m as proud of this album as much as any other, and hope that the fans enjoy it as much as I loved making it… this is for the friendlies. I’m very excited to be taking ‘The Heavy Entertainment’ show on tour next year.”
