`Take That reunion will cure Williams’ gig fear`
London: British singer Robbie Williams’ panic attacks on stage will be cured as he will be rejoined by friends from his previous band Take That, his dad has promised.
Pete Conway said chronic panic attacks that plagued Robbie on his last solo tour will not trouble him when he is on stage with his old band.
Robbie had to cancel dates on his 2006 Close Encounters tour because of stage fright.
“With the boys there the stage fright won’t be an issue. I know he suffered from that earlier on. But he’ll have all that support of his band of brothers,” a news daily quoted Pete as saying.
“It’s so wonderful that he has joined Take That again. It will be a solid and nice year for him. He’ll have fun and will have genuine friends around him for support. It can get a bit lonely on your own,” added Pete.
Pete insisted that Robbie would be better in the tour scheduled in 2011 than his early days with Take That.
“They are all married and Rob has a girlfriend. They`re more mature. It won`t get as wild as it used to,” said 65-year-old Pete.
