Williams released a YouTube video explaining the reason for his tour cancellation last month.
Having cancelled a section of his tour recently, Robbie Williams has revealed that he made the decision because he had received some “very worrying” test results that saw him get admitted to intensive care in hospital.
The 43 year old singer, who released his most recent album The Heavy Entertainment Show this time last year, cancelled three prestigious gigs in Russia in September at the end of his recent European tour, without offering an explanation.
However, on Wednesday (October 25th), Williams has shared a YouTube video in which he details the reasons for the cancellations – and they’re a lot more alarming than anybody could have thought.

Robbie Williams is worried that he's running out of ideas for his song lyrics.
Robbie Williams is running out of ''ideas'' for new song lyrics.
The 43-year-old singer has admitted he's beginning to get frustrated with his process for putting together tracks because he's finding himself using the same lines.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''I'm definitely running out of ideas. I don't know how many ways I can say: 'I'm neurotic and I messed up. Or: 'I love you, love me, I'm thick.' Or: Women, I like women.'

The former Take That star will perform at the BRITs later this month
Robbie Williams has surprised a fan by duetting with her daughter at a secret gig organised as part of the BRIT awards.

During the surprise, the 43-year-old musician joined forces with nine-year-old Grace the daughter of supporter, Danielle and put on an unexpected performance for the mum at her local cinema.
The awkward moment wasn’t lost on viewers.
On the BBC talent show Gary is looking for male singers to star in stage musical, The Band, which is based on the songs of Take That. However, as Gary told contestant Dan Budd, he’s not looking for singers who resemble the actual band members.
Take That are adamant they won't split up again unless another band member leaves the group.
Take That are back together for good.
Gary Barlow - the frontman of the band - is adamant the group, which is also comprised of Mark Owen and Howard Donald, will never split up again but thinks there may be a day when former member Jason Orange, 46 - who quit in 2014 - and part-timer Robbie Williams, 42, decide that they want to rejoin the trio.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the 45-year-old hunk said: ''We're at the point in our careers where we feel more excited than we've ever been.

The 'Let Me Entertain You' hitmaker admits streaming has become such a big player nowadays that record companies are worried, and insists he makes very little money from having his songs on the likes of Spotify.
He said: ''The music industry is obviously in rapid decline. I don't understand it but it looks like record companies are running for cover behind Spotify.

Williams made a few suggestive comments during a gig in Brisbane to a female fan, who later turned out to be just fifteen. Awkward!
Pop favourite Robbie Williams has accidentally landed himself in a spot of bother after flirting with a fan who turned out to be just fifteen years old during a recent gig in Australia.
Former Take That star and evergreen solo artist Williams, 41, was performing in Brisbane on Saturday night (October 17th) as part of his extensive ‘Let Me Entertain You Tour’, which is currently on its final leg in Australia and New Zealand. The singer started interacting with the crowd, picking out a female fan near the front and began speaking to her and complimenting her appearance.

Robbie Williams could be back with Take That again soon.
A source told The Sun, "Robbie's first return to Take That was never going to be a one-off. He feels passionate and proud of the band's achievements and still wants to be part of it. He loves the big tours and being in the studio with the lads. His comeback will be a great way to mark their anniversary.”

History could be about to repeat itself as the former boy band singer takes his career in a new direction, just like Robbie Williams before him.
Zayn Malik has come a long way in the five years since he hid backstage during 'X Factor' bootcamp, too afraid to dance in front of the cameras and judges. These days, the 22-year-old heartthrob is used to performing for tens of thousands of screaming fans in One Direction's sell-out arena tours.
Zayn could be heading in the right direction
And now, it emerges, he's taking the bold step of going solo, just months after sensationally quitting the band in March. Zayn has bagged himself a new record deal with RCA, home of Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys, and he's promising to show a new side to himself, tweeting '#REALME' after signing the contract, and posting a photo at the studio.

Having broken the hearts of millions when Robbie Williams quit in 1995, Take That have had first hand experience of carrying on life as a four-piece group.
Mark Owen was speaking to British radio station Magic FM when he was asked about the similarity of the two situations, and replied “Do you know what, one thing that we never did when Rob left us the first time is we never... You get caught up in your world and you forget sometimes... hopefully somebody's phoned Zayn and made sure he's alright, because it's, you know, it's difficult.”

The Led Zeppelin legend has won his dispute with neighbour Robbie Williams over a planned extension to the latter's basement.
A long-running battle between musicians has finally been settled, not in the charts but through the courts. A three-month long planning row between rock star neighbours Robbie Williams and Jimmy Page was decided in favour of the Led Zeppelin guitarist.
Former Take That singer Williams has ditched plans to add a huge extension to his £17.5 million Grade II-listed London property, including excavating and building a huge two-storey basement. 71 year old Page had fiercely contested the proposal by appealing to the local council on the grounds that it would affect that foundations of his Grade I-listed home.

The British pop star has definitely left his single ways behind him
Robbie Williams is a changed man. Far from the lad about town he once was when he left Take That and embarked on a solo career and life in the sun in Los Angeles, he’s now a happily married chap and a father of two. Not only that but it seems the popstar, who started off his career as one fifth of the biggest boy band of the 1990s, has also turned a bit soppy.
Robbie Williams: still a performer but also a firm family man
Speaking about his performances when he is apart from his wife of four years Ayda Field, the 40-year-old singer revealed that he likes to Skype his better half before going on stage.

Metallica are choosing to replicate Jay Z in performing a version of Wonderwall at their Glastonbury headline slot, but what are the best Oasis covers?
In a similar fashion to the announcement of Jay Z in 2008, metal titans Metallica’s headline slot at the iconic Glastonbury Festival has been met with a wave of criticism and derision from commentators who have deemed the Metallica’s headline position as both a lazy, predictable booking and one that is incompatible with Glastonbury’s demographic. However, whereas criticism towards Jay Z in the vein of what was unleashed by the Gallagher brothers was a scathing attack on hip hop as a genre, laced with a degree of barely concealed racism, Metallica’s backlash largely stems from elsewhere.

Firstly, this is a band that hasn’t produced an album of any merit for well over a decade and what’s more, considering they were announced long after tickets had sold out, how many of Glastonbury’s middle class bohemians will actually want to watch the band? Metallica have themselves responded to the criticism by announcing they may open their set with a cover of “Wonderwall”, copying Jay Z’s act of protest back in 2008. However, it does appear that Jay Z’s version carried a greater amount of symbolism, given that it was the Gallagher brothers who were the most vocal opponents of his appearance.
These (often unlikely) actors were once also in the running to play British secret agent, James Bond.
Before Bourne, there was Bond. James Bond is a name that has become synonymous with the idea of classic British sophistication and suave. Professionally trained and with a license to kill, 007 has been played by some of the most debonair actors in the business, including Sean Connery and Roger Moore. The role has been much sought after and many an actor has been on the disappointing receiving end of a casting call - and some you wouldn’t even imagine would ever have been in the running to begin with.
The Dark Knight star Michael Caine was once in the running for Bond
East End lad Michael Caine was considered for the role back in 1967. Caine had already starred in three spy movies and was concerned that if he were to play Bond, he’d have been typecast. Caine has since had a long and varied career, although he’s also become one with his Cockney twang. Can you imagine Caine ditching his accent in favour of Bond’s more upper-class drawl?

The two Take That bandmates went head-to-head in the charts this weekend, with Robbie holding out for the No. 1 spot
It was like 1997 all over again this weekend, as Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow battled it out for the Number One spot on the UK Album Chart. Much like the battles of the mid-to-late nineties, it was Robbie who came out on top again, making him the last artist to top the album chart in 2013.
The Take That guys were fighting for the top spot yet again
Robbie's new big band album, Swing Both Ways, held on to the No. 1 spot for a second week, having emerged victorious from another closely fought contest from last week. It was One Direction who Robbie managed to beat to the No. 1 spot last week, with his latest album beating Midnight Memories to the top spot by just 200 copies. This time around it was a relatively more clear contest, with Swing Both Ways outselling Gary Barlow’s latest solo effort, Since I Saw You Last, by approximately 12,000 copies.

Robbie and his silver streak are enjoying yet another comeback.
According to Robbie Williams, if you’re in L.A long enough, you’re going to pay for some self-improvement. That’s just a thing. And that’s what happened to him, he revealed to Graham Norton, admitting that he didn’t even need to get it done; he was just bored.
"I've lived in LA for a long time and they say, 'If you sit in a barber's shop for long enough you will get a haircut'. Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you're going to get some surgery,” he explained to Norton on Irish funny-man’s chat show.
"I've had a thatch done and I didn't even need it. That's the weirdest thing. I had three months off and got bored,” he revealed. Never has the ‘when in Rome’ phrase been so accurate. Williams has been sporting a hairstyle with a silver streak in his fringe.
