London: Robbie Williams was forced to stop his performance mid-way during the sold-out `Help for Heroes` concert after forgetting the lyrics to one of his songs.

The `Angels` hitmaker stopped singing halfway through his hit song `Feel` and then ran to the back of the stage to flick through a lyric book as 60,000 fans waited.

The crowd shouted out the words to the 36-year-old as he returned to the front and said, "I scared myself to death, but thank you." He then carried on with the show, reported Daily Mail online.

After the early hiccup, Williams welcomed his old friend and `Take That` bandmate Gary Barlow to the stage as they performed together live for the first time in 15 years.

In a sign that their feud was behind them, Williams, and Barlow embraced on stage in front of fans.

The duo sang to 60,000 people, including Prince Harry, at Twickenham Stadium in south west London in aid of the Help For Heroes charity which supports members of the armed forces.

They sang their new single `Shame` which was written about their relationship.
