London: Singer Robbie Williams has announced his first solo tour in six years and says the aim is to seal his place in pop history.

Williams` last was the Close Encounter tour in 2006 and his next one will kick-start in summer next year.

"It`s legacy time. The album`s called `Take The Crown` and I want to seal my place in pop history and deliver a tour of great magnitude while I still can," quoted Williams as saying.

Williams will start his gig June 19 at Etihad Stadium, Manchester and after a couple of more performances in the country he will travel to Europe.

"I`m very excited. I`ve been lethargic for the last couple of albums and it didn`t look like I was bothered - but I am really bothered now," he said.
