Robbie Williams fans across the country are set for a great autumn as the singer has announced a huge UK and Ireland arena tour as he celebrates 25 years as a solo artist.

The 48-year-old pop star will be performing in London on two dates, October 9 and 10 at the O2 Arena.

The eight-stop tour will come a month after the release of his newest album XXV on September 9.

The album features re-recorded versions of his greatest hits and fan favourites including Let Me Entertain You, Rock DJ and Millennium – newly orchestrated with the Metropole Orkest.

It also includes the newest version of his 1997 hit ballad Angels, which Williams performed in the half-time interval at Soccer Aid at the London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford for Soccer Aid on Sunday.

Several new tracks including Lost, Disco Symphony, More Than This and The World And Her Mother are also promised.

How to get general sale tickets for Robbie Williams’ tour?

General sale tickets will be available from 9am on Friday, June 17. They will also both be available on Live Nation and Ticketmaster.

An album presale is available for those who preordered Williams' new album before 3pm on Tuesday, June 14.

This pre-sale started at 9am on Wednesday, June 15 and lasts for 48 hours.

Williams’ new album marks the 25-year milestone in Williams’ glittering career as one of the world’s most decorated artists, with 13 UK number one albums, having left boyband Take That to pursue a solo career in 1995.

The group notched up eight number one hits and sold 10 million albums in the 1990s but tensions began to show between Gary Barlow, seen as the serious songwriter of the group, and Williams, the rebellious joker.

Together with Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Jason Orange, Take That were hailed as Britain’s biggest boyband in the 1990s, evoking hysteria reminiscent of The Beatles.
