Yeah he shoulda played 8 years ago or whenever he had his one & only hit single which I can't even remember the name of. What did he go into rehab for? Overdose of his ego? I bet he weighs 250 lbs by now.

Robbie is a fantastic entertainer and his songs aren't 1/2 bad at all. I'd watch him play.

Robbie Williams is like soccer. The world loves him but America doesn't. It's sad really because I just wanna rock....dj.

In North America he may be a one hit wonder. Everywhere else... not so much. More like, every song is a hit wonder.

cheeze-ball as he is, I think Robbie W is one of the few guys that can pull his schtick off...while i don't think he'd fit at all at coachella, i wouldn't freak out if he was added

I didn't know he even had one hit in America. What was it?

I was working in a record store when his first US album came out. It was actually pretty good pop music. I used to play it every afternoon for a while. I guess I didn't love it, because I never bothered to buy a copy.

Anyway, if he showed up, and it didn't conflict, I'd check him out. But I just don't think very many people care strongly for him, and there are too many douchbag hipsters who would whine and cry, even though they've probably never listened to him. Look at all the idiots who don't get why Crowded House is there, and they are way more respected in the US than Robbie.

True. Very good point. But are Crowded House really more respected than Robbie Williams? Maybe my view is tainted because I know this British family who LOVE Robbie Williams.

I would say Crowded House are better known, just on the strength of "Don't Dream It's Over". I knew that song but didn't know it was them, and I'm sure that's true for a lot of people.

Yes! :thu


I'd sell my kidneys to be able to see him live just once. But um yeah that is probably never gonna happen.

Actually I think he had two minor hits on this side of the pond. "Angels" hit #41, and "Millenium" hit #72. I remember hearing it a few times on the radio and seeing it on late night MTV when they used to play videos. That was a pretty cool video.

I would've loved to see him when he did his American tour while promoting The Ego Has Landed. He played 1000-2000 seat venues that were half full versus the stadiums he plays in the rest of the world. If any British people were at those shows I'm sure they feel special.

Robbie Williams doesn't get played in every supermarket and tacky chain restaurant in America like "Don't Dream It's Over"

i missed his only tour here as well.. what can i say i like euro-pop and it's hard to get certain artists to even attempt to tour the US due to its size and they fact they often have such large productions it's simply not logistical, especially if you only play NYC and LA.

it's a shame, but one can keep wishing.

Ugh, no wonder Americans don't like him, if that's all they know. I think that was my least favorite song on that album.

The fact that he never made it here makes me proud to be an American.
