Set List: Robbie Williams Swings His Hits

Robbie Williams has really taken his swing personna to heart on the new Swings Both Ways tour, performing music from his two albums from the genre along with his other hits in a big band style.

Williams opened his latest on Saturday, April 25 at the Papp László Sportaréna in Budapest, Hungary and is continuing throughout the European continent.

The singer performed ten of the thirteen songs on the Swings Both Ways album along with three from his 2001 set Swing When You're Winning. Add to that a new song, four covers and a covers medley and there isn't a lot of room for Williams' other career highlights. It wasn't until the last quarter of the show that any were played with five relegated to a medley followed by a full performance of Angels.
