Robbie Williams – ‘Let Me Entertain You’ Tour – Australia 2015 – More Shows Added!

Robbie

**** TOUR UPDATE ****
With word that Robbie Williams’ second Melbourne date on his upcoming Let Me Entertain You Tour has officially sold out, Chugg Entertainment are delighted to confirm a third and FINAL show at Rod Laver Arena on Saturday 24 October.

Since its announcement in May the response to the Let Me Entertain You tour has been outstanding right across the country, with second shows announced in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne mere minutes after the first tickets went on sale. This third Melbourne show will be the last show added to the Australian leg of Robbie’s World Tour, with Chugg Entertainment confirming no further shows will be announced and urging fans to get in quick for what few tickets remain for each show.

Michael Chugg said today, “Melbourne has always been a strong market for Robbie, he’s got some wild fans in Victoria. Adding this extra show on a Saturday night is going to make for an incredible weekend! Maybe my Tasmanian family will even come up for the party!”

Also confirmed today, Swedish trio Baskery will continue their Let Me Entertain You supporting act duties, joining Robbie for the Australian and New Zealand legs of the tour. No matter where in the world they go, people tell the Swedish sisters that they’ve never heard or seen anything like it, that they have a completely unique setup and perform with an inexhaustible energy. This high voltage trio has been compared to everything from Fleetwood Mac to The Black Keys to Led Zeppelin. It’s all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/songwriting. Expect the sounds of “banjopunk”, “new folk”, “nordicana”, an energetic live show and killer sibling harmonies.

Advance tickets to the Saturday 24 October show at Rod Laver Arena will be available at RobbieWilliams.com and the Visa Entertainment presale for all Visa Credit, Debit and Prepaid cardholders and can be purchased using Visa Checkout. The presale starts from 10am (local time) Tuesday 7 July 2015 and will run until 10am (local time) Wednesday 8 July 2015 or until presale tickets sell out at www.visaentertainment.com.au.
