Robbie Williams for Barclaycard Presents BST Hyde Park

The pop icon will headline the Hyde Park festival in 2019.

Robbie Williams has been announced as the latest headline act for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019.

The pop star will headline one of the days, taking to the iconic London park on Sunday 14 July 2019.

The festival is now in its seventh year and will find Robbie joining an elite list of artists who have headlined the Hyde Park stage including Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, The Killers, Kylie Minogue and loads more.

Robbie Williams first became a superstar as one-fifth of the monumentally successful boy band Take That. During their initial tenure between 1990-96, Take That released three studio albums and had eight UK chart-topping singles. After much speculation, the group reunited in 2005 without Williams. In July 2010, Williams announced he was returning to the group, and joined them for their Progress album and tour. After the band took a hiatus between 2011-13, Williams announced he was once again leaving the group.

Some of the band’s most famous hits include Pray, Relight My Fire, Back For Good, The Flood and Never Forget.

Post Take That’s initial breakup, Williams launched a hugely successful solo career and became one of the biggest recording artists the UK has ever produced. He has released eleven solo studio albums in his career thus far, with ten of them peaking at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart.

Robbie has released an astonishing thirty top-ten UK singles under his own name, including smash hits such as Candy, Radio, Rock DJ, Strong, Let Me Entertain You and the mega-anthem Angels. 

A must-see live act, Williams has sold-out venues such as Knebworth, London’s Wembley Stadium, Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and Glasgow’s Hampden Park.

Most recently Robbie has been lighting up TV screens as a judge on the ITV talent show The X Factor, alongside his wife Ayda.

Robbie Williams is the second headliner to be announced for Barclaycard Presents BST Hyde Park 2019, following news that legends Bob Dylan and Neil Young will co-headline on Friday 12 July 2019.

Here are the Barclaycard Presents BST Hyde Park dates so far:

12 July 2019 – Bob Dylan + Neil Young + special guests
14 July 2019 – Robbie Williams + special guests

Tickets for Robbie’s show at British Summer Time Hyde Park will be available from 9:00 Wednesday 5 December 2018 through Ticketmaster.co.uk
