Williams Cracks Up
Pop hunk Robbie Williams burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter during an intimate show in London last night (19NOV03), because he was intimidated by the small crowd.
The FEEL star was performing in front of just 300 people at London's legendary ABBEY ROAD studios, but was unnerved at how large the audience looked in the room, causing his concentration to break as he performed.
As he fluffed the first song, he told the small crowd, "I'm sorry, I was totally in my own world. I was playing the song and really meaning it and then I started thinking, 'There's a lot of people here isn't there?'"
The singer - who played to 120,000 fans at his Knebworth, England gig earlier this year (03) - admitted he prefers bigger venues, because he doesn't notice people looking at him.
He said, "It freaks me out, it really does. I go on and do a show at Knebworth and it doesn't exist, it's that big. And then I come do little ones and I can see everyone and you can see me."
Williams played a string of hits including NO REGRETS, ETERNITY, COME UNDONE and his breakthrough single ANGELS. His performance was for a Christmas (03) special to be broadcast on Britain's BBC RADIO TWO.20/11/2003 02:25
