English pop star Robbie Williams is set to perform in Abu Dhabi on October 18.
The singer and songwriter is known for his chart-topping hits such as Candy, Angels, She's the One and Rock DJ. Audiences at the Etihad Arena, Yas Island, can expect Williams to go through a playlist of some of the biggest hits from his 25-year career.
Williams first launched into fame as the youngest member to join the boy band Take That in 1990. However, he left the group five years later for a solo career in 1996 with Freedom, a cover of another English pop sensation, George Michael.
His debut album, Life thru a Lens, was released in 1997 and since then Williams has released 14 studio albums with all but one topping the charts in the UK.
Williams has also broken a number of records in the music industry including the Guinness World Record for selling 1.6 million tickets in a single day during his Close Encounters Tour in 2006.
He is the winner of 18 Brit Awards, including Best British Male Artist, Outstanding Contribution to Music, along with a number of MTV European Music Awards.
In January, on the Robbie Williams Rewind podcast, the artist told hosts Lucy and Matt Champion that he had plans to build a hotel where he will perform a regular residency and hinted that it might be in Dubai.
