MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. British pop idol Robbie Williams will not take his family to Russia for concerts in Moscow and St. Petersburg in the framework of his Let Me Entertain You world tour, a source close to the singer told TASS on Wednesday. However, Williams will bring his dog Spencer with him.
Williams’ last concert in Russia took place in 2003. Let Me Entertain You is the 11th world tour in the singer’s career. It was launched on March 25 in Spain and will end on August 10 in Hungary. The set list includes William’s biggest hits like "Rock DJ," "The Road to Mandalay," "Come Undone," "Feel," "Angels" and others.
The source said the 41-year-old singer has seven dogs. "Williams chose Spencer to accompany him on tour because Spencer has great character," the source said, adding that the singer often takes his wife and children on tour. Williams will fly to Russia on his private jet, the source added.
Talking about the singer’s tour rider, the source said it will be rather modest — television, personal catering, fitness equipment and a guitar. There are also 30 coaches on the rider, but there are not for Williams himself, but for the team of organizers and management.
Robbie Williams usually gets massage before he goes on stage. This procedure is included in the schedule before every concert.
The show will last for 3.5 hours and will end with Williams’ rendition of Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody." Williams will perform on April 9 in St. Petersburg and on April 12 in Moscow.
