Robbie Williams Is Headlining A One-Off Performance In Melbourne In 2020
Superstar Robbie Williams has been announced as the headlining act for the inaugural World Tour, which is running alongside the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2020.
World Tour Melbourne is set to take place on Saturday, March 14th at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park and will be the season opener for the FIA Formula 1 Championship.
“I am looking forward to getting down to Australia, it’s a place that is in my heart, I feel like an Aussie when I am there and if there’s an opportunity to get down there I grab it with both hands,” Robbie Williams said in a statement.
Following suit of fellow international celebs who have commented on the devastating bushfires continuing to burn around the nation, Williams said of the tragedy:
"This is beyond a tragedy, it’s unfathomable what has happened, and what is happening, in Australia. You see photographs of what’s actually happening, it can’t sink in, you can’t understand that, it’s beyond any reality that we’ve experienced before. I think it would be trite of me to send my love or condolences, I think it needs more.”
World Tour revealed it will use the opportunity to "provide a platform for artists to talk about and act on the climate emergency," a statement read, adding, "World Tour will be supporting the people who are working to build a better future in Melbourne and every other city visited."
Apollo World Touring’s Paul Morrison continued: “We are so proud and excited to be launching World Tour with Robbie Williams in Melbourne – to do this alongside the 25th Formula 1 race to be held in Melbourne, makes the occasion even more special.
"World Tour will feed global audiences hungry for great content – bringing the best in entertainment to provide a unique platform which will celebrate the best that Melbourne and all future World Tour cities has to offer”.
