A very special concert awaits the audience on November 15th in the Elbphilharmonie: Robbie Williams (48) celebrates his 25th year as a solo artist on the stage of the Hamburg Konzerthaus. The spectacle takes place as part of the Telekom Street Gigs and offers the fans some highlights in the venerable location.
On the evening, Williams will perform songs from his new compilation album XXV, which is out September 9th. In addition to new songs, the most successful hits of his career were re-orchestrated by composer Jules Buckley (42), songwriter Guy Chambers (59) and conductor Steve Sidwell (61) and recorded in the Netherlands with the well-known Metropole Orchestra. The live performance with the orchestra of the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt will now also take place under the direction of the Grammy Award-winning conductor Sidwell. More than 80 musicians accompany Williams on this evening in Hamburg.
The philharmonic and orchestra also provide the perfect opportunity for the world premiere of a very special song: "Angels (Beethoven AI)". It's a reinterpretation of Williams' 1997 hit, rearranged with Beethoven AI. It wasn't the AI's first work - last year it had already completed Beethoven's 10th symphony. The Beethoven AI version of "Angels" will be performed live for the first time in the Elbphilharmonie.
This concert will also be something very special for the star of the evening, as Robbie Williams explains, according to a press release: "I can't imagine a better place than the Elbphilharmonie to hear 'Angels' in the AI version for the first time and the songs from my to play new album 'XXV' live."
