Robbie Williams cancels three upcoming Russian tour dates due to illness
Robbie Williams has been forced to cancel three upcoming tour dates in Russia, including a performance at the closing ceremony of the New Wave singing contest in Sochi.
The UK singer-songwriter was also due to play dates in St Petersburg and Moscow but has cancelled "due to illness".
In a statement, the pop star's spokesperson confirmed that he will resume touring in New Zealand next February, after a lengthy summer leg of The Heavy Entertainment Show Tour. It read:
"The final two dates of the European leg of The Heavy Entertainment Show Tour, St Petersburg and Moscow, have been cancelled.
"Robbie Williams will also not be appearing at The New Wave event in Sochi."
The statement concluded: "Robbie Williams has played to over 1.1 million fans this summer and recently announced an Australian leg of the tour which is happening in February and March 2018."
It comes after the 'Rock DJ' singer opened up about his battle with agoraphobia and how most days he's been staying inside whilst on the road, admitting that his "cocky" stage persona is merely a facade to mask the fact that he is actually petrified.
