Concert Review: Let me… tell you, he entertained you!

On a Monday night at the end of February, a packed Royal Arena crowd let Robbie Williams entertain them. With stories of angels and demons, addiction and sobriety, Williams captivated the crowd through a nearly two-hour set.

Starts with a bang
The former Take That standout struck an early note with ‘Let Me Entertain You’ accompanied by suggestively dancing women as he strutted on stage. The audience clapped, waved their arms and screamed in deafening unison.

Hitting his stride early on, he saved some of the biggest moments for the end when ‘Rock DJ’ came an hour and a half into the show and he finished with a moving rendition of ‘Angels’ after teasing the song early on.

Capture their ears and hearts
It was an interactive, heartfelt show that included singing ‘She’s the one’ to a lady in the crowd, inviting two women with bad front seats and a t-shirt giveaway.

Williams is a great storyteller and shares from his life, creating a real connection with the audience. One of the most touching moments among many was before a tribute song to the Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell, who he credited with helping him through an addiction.

On several occasions he mentioned how his wife and children made his life worth living. Through dark days, anxiety and depression, Williams shared her survivor’s story.

To make an impression
It was the kind of show that made you want to play the songs again and made you really like the artist.

It felt as close to a conversation with a friend as a concert of this size could possibly get.

Consider me entertained.
