Robbie Williams cancels tour due to mystery “illness”

We hope he's okay

Concerns have been raised after Robbie Williams cancelled the remaining dates of his European tour.

The big-voiced workaholic announced yesterday that he had scrapped shows in St Petersburg and Moscow and had pulled out of the New Wave event in Sochi.

The tour has already been a massive hit and has been watched by an astonishing 1.1 million fans.

But for some reason, Robbie was unable to carry on touring.

His publicist released a statement reading: “Due to illness 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 news comes just days after he revealed in a magazine that being a pop star and all that came with it wasn’t good for his health.

In his warts-and-all chat, he revealed that he has never found it easy being in the spotlight or even performing.

“This job is really bad for my health,” he told the Sunday Times magazine.

“It’s going to kill me. Unless I view it in a different way!”

He went on to say that the attention he receives form being famous doesn’t sit well with him mentally.

“[Depression] sprints though my family.

“I don’t know if I’d be this mentally ill without fame.

“I don’t think it would be as gross or as powerful if it hadn’t have been for the fame.”

He went on to explain that “you get a magnifying glass in the shape of the world’s attention and your defects will obviously magnify too.”

Robbie has never been shy of opening up about his well-being and previously spoke about his depression and anxiety.

Just recently on Loose Women he said that when he first dealt with those conditions, it wasn’t the done thing to speak out loud about them, but now thankfully times are different.
