Robbie Williams will be rocking the London O2 this November and Sky 1 will be there to follow every step of the journey with a weekend of dedicated programming the channel have announced.
Phil Edgar Jones, Head of Entertainment for Sky commented: “Robbie Williams is undoubtedly one of the UK’s biggest and best loved entertainers and we are absolutely thrilled to be bringing Sky Customers his spectacular new show.”
With his Take The Crown show set to be his most stunning yet, Sky 1 HD will be live broadcasting his London O2 Arena concert on the 24th November into living rooms across the country.
Lifelong Robbie fan James Corden will kick off the proceedings with a 90 minute exclusive interview special, When Robbie Met James. Interspersed throughout the special will be backstage footage from a series of intimate gigs from three places that hold a special place in Robbie’s heart, as he entertains crowds at venues in Leeds, Glasgow and Southend; the exact 2000 seater venues he played on his very first solo tour. James Corden himself was at this tour back in 1997. Robbie will also perform a bespoke stripped down acoustic set as he prepares new material from his album ‘Take The Crown’, getting himself ready for his London O2 Arena residency.
Robbie Williams said: “A proper grilling with my friend James, how could I resist?”
