Robbie Williams is fulfilling his “boyhood dream” and performing at the World Cup opening ceremony in Russia.
The Let Me Entertain You singer will be taking to the stage before the first match of the tournament on Thursday 14th June, which will see Russia and Saudi Arabia go head to head in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.
Williams said: “I’m so happy and excited to be going back to Russia for such a unique performance.
“I’ve done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream. We’d like to invite football and music fans to party with us in Russia, in the stadium, or to tune in their TVs a little earlier for an unforgettable show.”
