Robbie Williams Pulls Out Of Olympics Duties
02 Jul 2012
Robbie Williams has pulled out of performing at the Olympics Closing Ceremony because his heavily expectant wife Ayda Field is expecting their baby any day now.
Robbie Williams was due to perform a number of his own hits as well as a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ and also join fellow Take That members for a set, but the conflicting dates has meant he has cancelled his appearance.
The Daily Mirror reported "Robbie quit a few weeks ago. He had been lined up to perform solo material and it was hoped he would sing with Take That. However, just as rehearsals were kicking off, he said there was an unfortunate clash of dates. It meant organisers had to adjust the entire schedule, because Robbie is an extremely high-profile performer, and had been given such an important role in the finale."
A number of top performers including northern Irish multi-million album selling Snow Patrol will be joined by Brit award-winning Welsh rockers Stereophonics, legendary 80s pop act Duran Duran and Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini for the Opening Ceremony on 27th July 2012 at Hyde Park, London.
Robbie Williams tickets are available for Robbie Williams shows when they become available on GET ME IN! Ticketmaster’s ticket market.
