Album of the Week
Get caught up in the Cuban-American pop icon's second album, Romance
Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park have unveiled a stellar line-up of support acts for Robbie Williams’ huge London show on Sunday 14 July 2019.
Now set to join him on the bill are the Black Eyed Peas, Keane, Texas and Feeder.
Hailing from California, the Black Eyed Peas rap-dance-pop group founded in the early ’90s, and are known for their infectious chart-toppers I Gotta Feeling, Boom Boom Pow, Pump It and Where Is the Love?.
They’ve scored a whopping six Grammy Awards including Best Pop Vocal Album for 2010’s The E.N.D.
Since early 2018 the Black Eyed Peas have reverted to their original pre-Fergie line-up which consists of will.i.am, apl.de.ap. and Taboo.
Their seventh and latest studio album is 2018’s Masters of the Sun Vol. I, on which they’ve collaborated with the likes of CL, De La Soul and Nas. Check out the video for BACK 2 HIPHOP ft Nas, a throwback to their early days.
Keane make a comeback after six years away, as the East Sussex bandmates with frontman Tom Chaplin will also support Williams at BST Hyde Park.
Formed in the 1995, the indie rockers stormed the charts with their 2004 debut album Hopes and Fears. They’re revered for lead single Somewhere Only We Know.
Pop rockers Texas have been together for more than 25 years. Considered one of Scotland’s top homegrown bands, they burst onto the scene with the anthem I Don’t Want a Lover.
In 2017, Texas released their ninth studio album, Jump on Board, featuring the reggae-infused song Midnight.
Together since 1994, Feeder boast 10 studio albums, 12 compilations, four EPs and 40 singles. The band recently released their expansive 50-track The Best of Feeder compilation, which includes nine new songs.
These four bands plus more still to be announced will appear with Robbie Williams, who has just wrapped up six dates on his new Las Vegas residency. Williams was announced as a headline act for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 late last year. The pop star will take to the iconic London park on Sunday 14 July 2019.
The festival is now in its seventh year and will find Robbie joining an elite list of artists who have headlined the Hyde Park stage including Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, The Killers, Kylie Minogue and loads more.
Williams first became a superstar as one-fifth of the monumentally successful boy band Take That. During their initial tenure between 1990-96, Take That released three studio albums and had eight UK chart-topping singles. After much speculation, the group reunited in 2005 without Williams. In July 2010, Williams announced he was returning to the group, and joined them for their Progress album and tour. After the band took a hiatus between 2011-13, Williams announced he was once again leaving the group.
Some of the band’s most famous hits include Pray, Relight My Fire, Back For Good, The Flood and Never Forget.
Post Take That’s initial breakup, Williams launched a hugely successful solo career and became one of the biggest recording artists the UK has ever produced. He has released eleven solo studio albums in his career thus far, with ten of them peaking at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
Robbie has released an astonishing thirty top-ten UK singles under his own name, including smash hits such as Candy, Radio, Rock DJ, Strong, Let Me Entertain You and the mega-anthem Angels.
A must-see live act, Williams has sold-out venues such as Knebworth, London’s Wembley Stadium, Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and Glasgow’s Hampden Park.
Recently Robbie has been lighting up TV screens as a judge on the ITV talent show The X Factor, alongside his wife Ayda.
