Robbie Williams: "I'd Play Gigs For £250"

3 December 2012, 12:17

The 'Candy' singer says he's "very very lucky to be making any money" from his shows.

Robbie Williams has admitted that earning money is not a big motivator for his live performances, saying he would perform for £250.

Comparing himself to footballer Ronaldo, Robbie explained he thought the player would still be "running around the pitch" if he was earning £250 a week. He added: "its the same for me".

Robbie told The Sun in a recent interview: "I've never, ever, truthfully, been on stage thinking about the money I'm making."

"I'm on stage thinking about the best for the show. There was one tour years ago, the first time I did Milton Keynes Bowl, and I was like, 'Well, that paid for the kitchen tonight – that's good."

The 'Angels' singer has been in the music business for almost twenty years, and enjoyed years of success in the band Take That alongside The X Factor Judge Gary Barlow.

Robbie also recently announced a huge UK tour for next year, with Olly Murs joining him as his support act.

The tour will take place in June 2013.
