It looks like Robbie Williams' fans won't be seeing the pop singer performing on the stage this year after the singer stated that he won't be touring anytime soon. According to reports, the British singer confirmed that news on his blog, stating, "The more time I'm spending away from public life, the more I like it. There definitely won't be a tour any time soon".
Moreover, on the blog the singer also wrote that he is planning to release a new album in 2009 and once again insisting that his fans won't be able to catch him on stage. "I might put the B-sides to the next album out first online. Then put an album out in 2009 which means you won't be seeing a lot of me on stage."
His decision not to do any tour, could cost him the chance to get richer as latest report from Mirror.co.uk stated that Robbie has been offered to play at a festival in Sandness, Norway. At the event, the pop singer is scheduled to play for half an hour only and will be paid 1.5 million pound sterling.
Unfortunately, it seems Robbie is sticking to his decision and won't be taking that offer. A source close to the British singer said, "It would be probably the easiest money he'll make in his life but it's touch and go whether he'll say yes. We'll have to wait and see."
In other news, Robbie himself reportedly is having some dispute with his current label EMI, because of the company's new owner Terra Firma's decision on insisting to make 2,000 redundancies. Because of that, the pop singer allegedly is planning to hold the release of his upcoming album.
