Robbie Williams storms Ischgl

robbie 5Robbie Williams takes the Austrian ski resort of Ischgl by storm!  Ischgl has been featuring ‘end of season’ concerts since 1994 when Sir Elton John performed.  This year, it was Robbie Williams and many concertgoers feel this was Ischgl’s best concert yet!

Other performers who have graced the ‘end of season’ stage include The Killers, Bon Jovi and even Sting.

This year, though, the weather was not on the side of Robbie Williams or the crowd.  According to Elisabeth Türtscher from Galtür, there were thick clouds, visibility was hampered and then there was snow!

However, Robbie Williams and his 25-piece Big Band kicked off the concert with aplomb, not letting the weather deter him at all.  He started his set with ‘Let Me Entertain You’ and that is exactly what he did, to the delight of over 25,000 people.

Williams’ concert lasted for an hour and a half, and everyone agreed that he was one of the best entertainers they have seen at the Austrian resort.

The snow did fall, lightly, throughout the performance, but it really seemed to enhance the ambiance.  A little winter white to go with Williams’ music made it all the more atmospheric.


As the concert was planned for the day, there were no lights for the stage, you just heard his music and that was enough. Williams’ dad, Peter, actually joined Robbie on stage for a duet.

The concert was free, all that concert lovers had to do was buy a lift pass to get to Ischgl’s resort.

At a press concert prior to the show, Williams said that Austria was his favourite country to play in, which made the concert even more memorable.
