Robbie Williams’ 46 date ‘Swings Both Ways Live’ tour opens this month

Apr - 09 2014 | no comments

Robbie Williams’ spectacular “Swings Both Ways Live” tour is set to open on April 25th in Budapest. The tour will feature songs from both of his number one swing albums, “Swing When You’re Winning” and last years huge No 1 album , “Swings Both Ways” – as well as some classic Robbie career favourites. Last year saw Robbie perform a one off swing show at The Palladium featuring several special guests, including Robbie’s dad – Pete Conway. Pete will join Robbie once again on this tour, performing at one point in the show with his son. Robbie will be dressed by Saville Row tailor Spencer Hart and joined by a classic big band and eight dancers. Robbie and long time collaborator and show producer, Lee Lodge, have added the talents of West End choreographer and performer Alistair David (Fosse, The Sound of Music, Tonight’s The Night, Sinatra at the London Palladium) to ensure the show is an all singing all dancing extravaganza.

Robbie said of the tour: “This Swings Both Ways tour is very different from any previous Robbie Williams tour, and I think it’s going to be very special. When I was young the television companies in the UK saw fit to broadcast replay after replay after replay of all the classic old musicals. I think most kids my age were bored and turned off by things like that, but I wasn’t.”

“I was engrossed in it all, lost in the magic of the glamour, and entranced by the craftsmanship of those times. I want this to be a show that gives you the same feeling that I used to have at my grandma’s on a Saturday night, watching the Morecambe & Wise show on TV: a show with variety and lots of showbusiness moments. I know my jazz hands are going to be so tired after this tour. I intend to do my very best to ensure that every one of you is heavily entertained.”

To follow all the action, fans can sign up to Upfront with Robbie Williams, a brand new service documenting Robbie’s progress across Europe, the UK and Australia.
