Robbie Williams performed to a star-studded crowd at his comeback concert last night October 20. The ‘Bodies’ singer made his first full live appearance in three years at London’s Roundhouse for the BBC Electric Proms show, dazzling fans including singer Will Young, actor Sir Ian McKellen and radio presenter Chris Evans with a mix of classic hits and new material backed by a 38-piece band.
However, Robbie – who was recently criticized for a shambolic appearance on UK TV talent show ‘The X Factor’ – ensured he would not make any mistakes by having his lyrics displayed on a small video screen at the back of the venue. One concertgoer said, “The autocue had the lyrics for all his songs scrolling through, even the big hits like ‘Feel’ and ‘Come Undone’. He didn’t seem to need it that often though, except for when he covered The Buggles hit ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’.” The singer paid tribute to his former Take That bandmates before performing ‘No Regrets’ – a song written about his bitter departure from the band – and offered condolences to “new best mate” Gary Barlow, whose father died last week.
