Demand for Robbie Williams
to tour has surged following the announcement of his greatest hits album.
The singer recently unveiled
plans to release the second singles collection of his career, later revealing that he had recorded
a duet with former Take That bandmate Gary Barlow for the LP.
According to Music Rooms
, Europe's largest ticket marketplace viagogo has seen a 400% increase in searches for Robbie Williams tickets, despite no announcement of a tour from Williams himself.
Viagogo UK director Ed Parkinson said: "We've found that as soon as news of album releases hit the headlines fans, will get online to buy tickets.
"This trend has continued with Robbie Williams and highlights that his popularity remains sky high among the British public, who one day hope to see the entertaining supremo perform another Knebworth-style gig."> Click here to watch our interview with Robbie Williams for this year's Soccer Aid
