Continuing my one woman campaign...

to get Robbie Williams recognition here in the USA.

On the last video, a few of you requested that the next one be from his award winning 2001 'Swing When You're Winning' concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London, so here you are.

Robbie dedicated both the concert and the album that followed, to his mum & dad who love this music and inspired him growing up. If you watch right to the end you will see his proud mum in the audience. This was one of his biggest ever successes and brought him a legion of new fans, including my mum and grandma!

The whole concert was swing favourites and really showcased him for the first time as not just a boy band superstar, but an all round superstar. I have the album of this concert and it's still a great fave of mine years later.

As the song ends you get to see the vulnerable, emotional Robbie that many adore back home. Enjoy!

I think the reason he's not more popular in the US is because they didn't release his good stuff on the radio there! I can only really recall hearing Millennium and Rock DJ on the radio... and they're not bad, but I think he's got way better stuff. Good luck with your quest to get him recognized ;)

Not sure he'll make it over there to be honest, if it was going to happen it would have done by now. Some things just don't travel. Terry & June was a disaster in the US !

That concert was fab, I have the CD from it.

I'm off to watch Take That next week. They are still brilliant but wish Robbie would come back

I think for the most part you are preaching to the choir ... you need to petition the radio stations to play his music ...

He's terrific. Love those old songs.

I think he's really cool... maybe a little too honest for Americans?
