Pop royalty Robbie wows 50,000 fevered fans

AN eclectic mix of the young – and the not so young – came in their droves to pay homage to their King of Pop.

Robbie Williams was back in town, and his fans who made the journey to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin gave him a regal welcome.

This was a gig for which they had waited a long time.

The former Take That superstar had chosen Dublin's Aviva Stadium to kick off his much-heralded 'Take The Crown' arena tour of Ireland and Britain.

In 2006, the last time he embarked on a solo arena tour, he faced a bout of stage fright, resulting in the cancellation of a leg of the tour. But this time round, the 39-year-old was determined to wow the crowd from the moment he appeared on stage.

Unseasonal showers did little to dampen the spirits of the 50,000 fans, many of whom had patiently waited outside the stadium since lunchtime to a wangle a prime position.

Fans from all over the country captured the mood with an array of colour. There was a collection of hats sporting 'Robbie, I'm Your Angel', while others proudly paraded less-than-subtle T-shirts emblazoned with 'Robbie, I Just Want To Feel Real Lovin'.'
