The 'Love Love' singer says he is "so proud" of Robbie after watching him perform at the O2 Arena.
Gary Barlow says Robbie Williams "belongs" in stadiums in the wake of the 'Candy' star announcing a string of high profile tour dates for next year.
The pop singer will embark on a stadium tour of the UK from June 2013 to promote his latest album 'Take The Crown', and Take That frontman Gary says he felt "so proud" watching Robbie's live performance return at the O2 Arena last week.
"Stadiums are where Rob belongs," Gary told the Daily Star this week. "He is stadium act.
"I was down at the O2 on Friday to see him and thinking how amazing it is that all of us are doing stuff all these years on and such a high level."
Garry added: "I'm so proud of him."
The X Factor UK judge also spoke about how excited he was to get back out on stage this week, after launching his new solo tour on Tuesday (27th November) with a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
"It's nice to play live again as it's a good antidote for me from being on telly and just talking, to get out and sing and back to what I do."

During Gary's live tour launch Robbie also made a surprise appearance on stage, repaying the favour from his own live show the week before, by joining him for a duet.
Robbie Williams is set to return with a brand new single called 'Different' on 17th December.
