THE one and only, Robbie Williams, arrived in Cardiff yesterday as part of his Heavy Entertainment Show.

His tour, already a fan packed success in the UK, didn’t change with his arrival in Wales. Fans flooded in from all over creating a distinct buzz across the city. Many serious Robbie fans had been queuing at the Principality Stadium since the early morning demonstrating his loyal fan base were not messing around.

Joining Robbie on his tour, Erasure, were the first to perform and are known for their hits A Little Respect, Stop! and Sometimes

Their performance was enjoyed by the crowd and helped set the tone for the rest of the night.

Robbie Williams came to the stage and began his performance with The Heavy Entertainment Show from his 11th studio album. 

While there were a few songs performed from his new album, the show concentrated on his top hits: Let Me Entertain You, Rock DJ, Angels and many more. 

Audience participation was encouraged throughout, with members singing, dancing and thoroughly enjoying themselves; one member of the audience was even invited on stage.

Adding to the entertainment were several surprises. There was a visit from Robbie’s dad who joined Robbie to sing Sweet Caroline, a tribute to George Michael’s death last year with the song Freedom and he also touchingly performed Strong, which he originally sang in memory of the victims of the Manchester terror attack, at the Ariana Grande’s One Love concert. 

The show ended with Robbie, wearing a Welsh Flag, singing My Way by Frank Sinatra.

A brilliant night, enjoyed by all.
