Robbie cantó ayer en el Metro Theater de Sydney (Australia)
En un concierto íntimo, para 1.200 personas, Robbie cantó ayer (25 de noviembre de 2009) en forma brillante durante 90 minutos.
El sonido fue asombroso y él se veía increíble. Relajado, divertido, fantástico…
Como siempre, interactuó con sus fans, y en un momento les pidió que eligieran cuál querían que fuese el tercer single de RKTVS: Morning Sun o Starstruck. Así, después de escuchar la respuesta del público, dijo: “Sydney a votado. El tercer single sería Starstruck”.
Algunas de las canciones fueron:
You Know Me
Wont Do That
ROBBIE WILLIAMS at The Metro Theatre
26 Nov. 2009
ROBBIE WILLIAMS at the Metro? News the stadium-filling singer would play a venue fitting just 1200 people surprised everyone.
But the British pop star seemed entirely comfortable last night in the tighter space. He brought a bright confidence and playful verve to the stage for a show with an air of genuine rarity in a music scene full of gigs touted as "special".
In darkness set to moody atmospherics, the silhouette of Williams followed a band scaled down to fit on a smaller stage before launching into the pulsing new single Bodies. The singer jived playfully, shimmying with the microphone stand and leading waves of the audience’s arms.
“Good evening everybody – how the f—in’ hell are you feelin’?” he asked the roaring crowd after the first number, before declaring he would “entertain the shit out of you”.
Strike-a-pose moments, karate postures, quick shuffles and crotch grabs were among the moves as he continued with casual yet energised drive in a setlist that shifted from his new album, Reality Killed the Video Star, to past favourites such as Come Undone and left-field picks such as Walk on the Wild Side.
The relatively intimate surrounds – tickets to the show were limited in a credit-card promotion – and lack of the usual horn and string sections only enhanced the punch and drive of a hook-laden set delivered with a nice clarity of sound against the backdrop of a simple red drape.
Tonight Williams performs at the local music world’s trophy night, the ARIA Awards, at the more staid Acer Arena in Homebush, but last night the one-time member of the British boy band Take That brought his trademark cheek and wit in spades. There was little sign Williams had lost any of his stage charisma or vocal strength during the three-year sabbatical that preceded his return to performing this year.
Looking casual almost to the point of being dishevelled in jeans and a blue shirt, the 35-year-old with several stints in rehab behind him appeared healthy and certainly – in contrast to his 2006 Australian shows for his coolly received album Rudebox – interested and engaged.
“Don’t call it a comeback,” Williams entreats on a new song, Last Days of Disco. However it is construed, he’s in impressive form and clearly hungry for his return.
