The ‘Angels’ singer ‘ who is currently on the UK leg of Take That’s European tour ‘ and his wife Ayda Field have eight pooches and their beloved Jack Russell Baby recently had a nasty encounter with the slippery reptile.
Luckily though Samantha wasn’t hurt and has made a full recovery.
Writing on his website in response to a fan’s question about whether he preferred German Shepherds or Jack Russells, Robbie said: “I’ve got both so can’t pick ..seems wrong…our Jack Russell got bit by a rattlesnake last week….all good though she’s fine…tuff ting she is.
During Take That’s ‘Progress Live’ tour, Robbie ‘ who quit the group in 1995 ‘ performs some of his greatest solo hits and says he wants to do another solo tour, especially for the people who have been criticising his recent performances.
Writing to a fan who asked what he wants to say to his critics, Robbie said: “Haha! I wouldn’t be aware that people were putting me down if you hadn’t told me must say I am aware that there is a perception in certain quarters and I’m enjoying throwing that perception down people’s throats when I jump through the wall in L.M.E.Y (Let Me Entertain You)…I’ve never felt more on my game ..and it’s thanks in part to the nay sayers….they have put a fire in my belly and in turn a smile on my face.I’m blessed to have them… and when the tickets go on sale for my next tour I think we’ll see what ‘dwindling’ looks like
“Yes there will be a solo tour and I’m not sure where I’ll be going yet.”
Take That kicked off their Wembley Stadium concerts with a stunning show last night (30.06.11).
The group – made up of Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald – are playing a record-breaking eight gigs at the prestigious London venue as part of their ‘Progress Live’ tour, their first as a five-piece since Robbie quit in 1995.
The show opened with Gary, Mark, Jason and Howard playing the hit songs from their two albums as a four-piece, ‘Beautiful World’ and ‘The Circus’, which included ‘Greatest Day’, ‘Rule The World’, ‘Patience’ and ‘Shine’ as well as leading the crowd in a rendition of the Great British national anthem ‘God Save The Queen’.
As they went off stage, Robbie appeared and treated the screaming crowds to songs from his solo career, starting with ‘Let Me Entertain You’ and finishing with his most famous song, ‘Angels’, which left him overcome with emotion.
The group then all appeared on stage together as they sang hit single ‘The Flood’ and other songs from their ‘Progress’ album, before thrilling the audience with some of their biggest ever hits from their early days, including ‘Back For Good’, ‘Pray’, ‘Relight My Fire’ and ‘Never Forget’.
Support for the evening came from the English electronic dance music duo, Pet Shop Boys.
Take That have been entertaining themselves on tour by playing bingo.
Gary Barlow ‘ who is joined in the British group by Mark Owen, Jason Orange, Robbie Williams and Howard Donald ‘ has been hosting “Barlow’s Bingo” nights for the band, using the kit he bought when he was a professional caller of the game before shooting to fame in the 90s.
He said: “I used to be a bingo caller when I was first starting out.
“I used to love reading out the numbers. We have bingo nights backstage on the Take That tour to help everyone relax. We call it Barlow’s Bingo.”
Meanwhile, Robbie Williams ‘ who has previously spoken of his desire to start a family with wife Ayda Field – has been showering lavish gifts upon his bandmate’s kids, including giving Gary’s 10-year-old son Daniel a pair of soccer star David Beckham’s old boots.
Gary said: “My son Daniel loves Rob because he gives him footballs and he even gave him a pair of David Beckham’s old boots.
“He thinks the best thing that’s ever happened to me is knowing Rob.’
Mark Owen added: “My children Elwood and Willow love Rob. My son draws pictures for him and Ayda. He’s obsessed with him.”
