Robbie Williams Beats Olly Murs' Press Ups Total At Leeds Comeback Gig

12 September 2012, 11:22

The Take That star made his solo comeback with a hit packed set at the city's Academy venue.

Robbie Williams beat Olly Murs' press up total as he made his comeback at a gig in Leeds last night (11th September).

Olly successfully completed 41 press ups during his performance at the iTunes Festival earlier this month after Usher had also attempted the feat.

Robbie, who is friends with the 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer, took on the challenge as he played Leeds Academy on Tuesday.

In video footage, the 'Candy' singer is spurred on by the sold-out crowd as he eventually manages to do 50 press ups without interruption.

Robbie's performance in Leeds marked the first of four intimate UK and Ireland gigs ahead of the release of his new album 'Take The Crown'.

More than 500,000 fans applied for tickets to see Robbie return to the stage.

The Take That star played several new songs at last night's gig, including his current single 'Candy', which was given its first play on Capital FM earlier this week.

Robbie also played hits from his back catalogue, including 'Rock DJ', 'Let Me Entertain You' and 'Angels'.

He also joked at one point that he would not be playing 'Rudebox' – his much-talked about 2006 single.

'Candy' is released in October – a week before the release of 'Take The Crown' on 5th November.
