Robbie Williams taking kids on tour
Robbie Williams is happy his two young children will be accompanying him on tour next year
Robbie Williams is taking his children on tour.
The 42-year-old singer recently unveiled plans for his 'Heavy Entertainment Show' stadium shows in Europe in 2017 and is thrilled four-year-old Teddy and two-year-old Charlton -his kids with wife Ayda Field - will be joining him on the road.
He said: "The children will be coming on tour with me - I'm glad."
However, Robbie is unsure how impressed the youngsters will be with his shows.
He admitted: "Teddy watched my performance on 'The X Factor' and looked at Nicole Scherzinger and said, 'What is that lady thinking?' And I thought, 'What is she thinking?' "
The 'Party Like A Russian' singer has promised the tour will be "huge".
He said: "My tour is going to be huge. And my temperament is huge - nobody has got a temperament like me.
"My respect for women, nobody respects women like I do. And nobody sings 'Let Me Entertain You' or 'Angels' like me."
Robbie's homecoming shows in Manchester are very close to when his sometime group Take That also play the city, but he is unsure whether it would be possible to join them on stage to mark the band's 25th anniversary.
He said: "I don't know if it would be easy. Right now I don't think it would happen but at some point there will definitely be a reunion."
The 'Angels' hitmaker is also keen to perform at Glastonbury, and would hope his new friend and collaborator Ed Sheeran - who penned a track for his new album - would join him on stage.
He told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I would like to be on stage in front of a record-breaking amount of people, so yes, I would love to do Glastonbury.
"It's not like an arena is more intimate than a stadium, I'm just happy there is an audience who want me, to be honest.
"I would love Ed Sheeran to come and sing with me."
