Gary Barlow may have been honoured by the Music Industry Trust last week but Robbie Williams is currently riding high in the popularity stakes according to the latest data from viagogo, the world’s largest ticket marketplace.
“Despite Gary’s spell in the showbiz spotlight, Robbie should have no regrets about his comeback as it seems he still holds a place in the public’s hearts. With his single at the top of the charts and new album just released, ticket demand is likely to increase even further.” Says Ed Parkinson at viagogo.
The site has seen searches for tickets to Robbie’s O2 Arena dates in November quadruple since his single Candy went to number 1 in the music charts last Sunday.
Of course these days its all friendly rivalry, and Barlow’s starring role on TV’s X Factor has also seen ticket demand for his tour, although viagogo haven’t given any details on how much demand there has been for Gary Barlow solo – but it has been noted tickets for his shows did ‘sell out’ fast when put on sale.
