Just days after hinting at the possibility of a reunion, Robbie Williams hit the stage with his former Take That bandmates at a benefit concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall last night (November 12th). Unfortunately, as The Daily Mirror reports, said reunion lasted only 57 seconds (as evident by this YouTube video) and did not even result in a note. Instead it served as the first step in what Williams hinted could be a big reunion.
“The reunion’s not happening tonight – we have to wait for something very special,” Williams explained backstage to the Mirror. “But the ball is rolling for a Take That album with me. I was tearing up when I was on stage with the lads.”
I love them – there’s no more hard feelings,” he went on to add. “If we did a reunion, it would have to be Back For Good. I’d do one of Gazza’s songs instead of my Could It Be Magic as I’m over all that now.”
The concert, which benefited the British charity Children In Need, did, however, result in a rather high-profile sing-a-long of “Hey Jude” featuring the members of Take That, Paul McCartney, Lily Allen, and Leona Lewis. So, there was some consolation for those still waiting for Take that to officially be Back for Good.
