"It's Legacy Time": Robbie Williams On Tour

Robbie Williams has released the news of a European arena tour for 2013, with three dates in the UK before moving onto mainland Europe. He'll be bringing Olly Murs along with him for support, reports the Independent.

Robbie Williams last couple of albums have been pretty terrible. However, with his marriage, the birth of his daughter and the reunion of Take That, everything has taken a U-Turn in Robbie's life and his latest single 'Candy' shot to the top spot in the UK, as did the album Take the Crown. It's fitting, therefore, for him to embark on a tour of enormous magnitude to reflect and enhance the success he has already found this year. 

"I'm buzzing. I'm ready to go. I haven't done a tour of this size since 2006. I believe that I'm at the place in my career where it's time to put my foot down and go 'This is what I do'. It's legacy time for me." He said, "I'm nearly 40, that's what I'm trying to say. I don't know how many times I will get given this opportunity... I want to go and seal my place in pop history... I've got a couple more (tours) left. I just want to put my stamp down... Say remember me."

Speaking about his daughter's influence on him in relation to the tour he said: "Perhaps I will be a bit more calm. She's a very, very calming presence. Already I feel that something cosmically has changed within me and I don't know what it is but I feel happier as a person and a bit more grounded as a person. That's happened naturally. She's coming with us, of course. It probably means I'll get more sleep because she's there, not less because she's there... She's rounding off my rough edges as the weeks progress in her life so far."

His three shows at Knebworth back in 2003 brought in almost 400,000 fans and it really is the one to beat. However, with a daughter and a wife to work for, his motivations for legacy are that much stronger. We have high hopes for next year's tour.
