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.

Tickets go on sale on June 23 at noon;
