If anyone has made a career out of charisma, it’s Robbie Williams. Doing a set of “little gigs” 15 years after his first solo tour he has certainly refined his cheeky chappie persona since I saw him standing on the same stage, all uncertainty and self-consciousness in 1997. The tears of a clown are never far away, however, and this same compulsion for reverence and adoration is still apparent, even if he is in a much happier place right now, with new wife, imminent new baby, and almost new album soon to be released.
