The world cries

Robbie Williams has said that he’s refusing to go tour to promote his latest material, because the last time he got himself around the world (on the Close Encounters tour in 2006) he suffered a nervous breakdown.

The ‘fat dancer from Take That’ (copyright: Noel Gallagher) played five nights in a row at Milton Keynes Bowl, and suffered so severely from exhaustion that he had to cancel later dates in Asia.

‘I cannot imagine touring in the near future,' he said. 'I've smashed my head against a wall too many times. I know it's harder than I am.

‘I felt great when I started to promote a record but it soon began to kill me. I felt worse when on tour. I suffered a nervous breakdown and checked into rehab.’
