Robbie Williams’ concert in Zagreb, Croatia

13th August 2013 – this joyous day or Dasha finally saw Robbie Williams’ concert (in Zagreb, Croatia). I already thought that I was looking forward to the concert a bit too much, because at 7 p.m. it started to rain (heavily)… and whenever I’m too excited about something, something always goes wrong… but thankfully it stopped until 9 p.m., when Robbie stepped (or more precisely: flew) onto the stage.

“Let me introduce myself. I’m Robbie f*cking Williams. And for the next 2 hours, your ass is mine”, were his first words. I screamed like a teenager and the first few seconds I was just repeating “OMG OMG OMG”. I just couldn’t believe that he is just a few meters away from me and that this is actually happening. I’ve been waiting for this concert for too long (for a decade or even more).

And then he started singing “Let Me Entertain You”, which is my favorite song from him. I got goosebumps and I looked at him like I’m a little disturbed. Even my boyfriend asked me if I feel good. I guess I really looked “stupid”. Yes, Robbie has such an impact on me. I can’t help it.

His repertoire consisted of songs from his latest album “Take The Crown” such as “Not Like the Others”, “Gospel”, “Be a Boy” and “Candy”… and his greatest hits – all from “Kids” (which he sang in a duet with Olly Murs, who was his opening act), “Monsoon”, “Sin Sin Sin”, “Bodies”, “Come Undone”, Take That’s “Everything Changes”, “Strong”, “Me and My Monkey”, “Hot Fudge” to “Rock DJ”.

In between he picked up a guitar and sang a mix of songs from other artists (“Baby One More Time”, “We Will Rock You”, “Wonderwall”) and some of his songs (“Millennium”, “Better Man” and “Sexed Up”).

He saved his most successful ballads “Feel” and “She’s the One” for the end, but an evening peaked with the song “Angels”, towards the end of which was a huge firework display. It was a perfect combination.

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of his last 3 albums – everything from “Rudebox” onwards. But Robbie is… Robbie, a born performer, a person with an abnormal charisma, a total goofball… no one can accuse him for not cooperating with the audience (while singing songs “Everything Changes” and “Strong” he invited a girl from the audience onto the stage; he dedicated a song “Me and My Monkey” to some other girl from the audience; for the last 2 songs he invited on stage a mother with her young daughter)… Robbie makes a show, about which people talk for quite some time.

However, if you ask me, I would have bought a ticket if he read numbers from the phone book on stage, because… he was simply born to entertain us.
