Robbie Williams will be performing a one-off concert at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena for the filming of his biopic 'Better Man'.

British pop superstar Robbie Williams is coming back to entertain his Australian fans for one night only.

Taking to Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Saturday, April 30, the special concert is called ‘An Exclusive Evening With Robbie Williams’ and will see audiences treated to one hour of Robbie’s greatest hits and an on-stage interview where the British superstar will share stories from his incredible life.

The evening will be filmed with footage to be included in the upcoming biopic Better Man, which is currently in production in Melbourne.  Fans are encouraged to raid the back of the wardrobe and come dressed in their best 90s concert-going outfit.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

The film, directed and co-written by The Greatest Showman’s Michael Gracey and with Williams in the title role, will offer an introspective look into the experiences that shaped Williams, both on and off stage, exploring the experiences that made him who he is, and the demons he battled.

Williams joined Take That in 1990 at only 16, and more than 30 years later has achieved a total of 18 Brit Awards. Williams’ writing, recording and performances have set him apart in making a lasting impact on British culture, recognising the very highest level of British musical achievement.

From his breakthrough global smash hit ‘Angels’, through to pop anthems ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ‘Millennium’, ‘Come Undone’, ‘Kids’, ‘Feel’, ‘Rock DJ’, and more, Robbie Williams’ unparalleled catalogue is a career-defining generational soundtrack – and this film will be a behind the scenes look at it all.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be staging this very special, exclusive, never-to-be-repeated night in Melbourne in April. I genuinely love being in Australia, so it’s only fitting that I’m shooting the ‘Better Man’ movie there,” Williams said.

“I’m delighted to be hosting this unique evening with my Victorian fans, where I’ll be performing a set as well as sharing some exclusive insights into the movie.”

Better Man is set to become one of the largest movies to be filmed in Victoria.

This performance comes two years after Williams was forced to cancel his Australian tour due to the pandemic. Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of ‘An Exclusive Evening With Robbie Williams’ for one exclusive night only.

Tickets go on sale Friday 18 March 1pm AEDT via Ticketek.
