About Robbie Williams
Robbie Williams is set to release a new album, The Christmas Present, his first-ever Christmas album, this November. He's also announced details of The Robbie Williams Christmas Party, which will see the pop star headline London’s The SSE Arena, Wembley on 16 December 2019.
This past summer Williams performed as one of the headliners for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019.
Williams first became a superstar as one-fifth of the monumentally successful boy band Take That. During their initial tenure between 1990-96, Take That released three studio albums and had eight UK chart-topping singles. After much speculation, the group reunited in 2005 without Williams. In July 2010, Williams announced he was returning to the group, and joined them for their Progress album and tour. After the band took a hiatus between 2011-13, Williams announced he was once again leaving the group.
Some of the band’s most famous hits include Pray, Relight My Fire, Back for Good, The Flood and Never Forget.
Post Take That’s initial breakup, Williams launched a hugely successful solo career and became one of the biggest recording artists the UK has ever produced. He has released 11 solo studio albums in his career thus far, with 10 of them peaking at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
Williams currently holds the record for the most BRIT Awards won – 13 as a solo artist and five with Take That. One of those BRIT Awards is a special recognition award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, which he took home in 2010. He is one of the biggest-selling artists, racking up over 77 million record sales worldwide.
