Official VAILO Adelaide 500


05 Dec 2022

Global pop sensation Robbie Williams has been announced as the headlining act at the VALO Adelaide 500 after-race concert, performing on Sunday 26 November, 2023.


Stepping onto the VALO Adelaide 500 concert mainstage, within the picturesque Victoria Park Street Circuit, Robbie Williams will be a much-anticipated highlight of the 2023 Supercars Championship season finale event in Adelaide.


Robbie Williams is without doubt one of the finest male pop stars of his generation, having sold over 85 million albums, 14 UK number one albums (the most for any solo artist, equalled only by Elvis Presley) and 14 number one singles as a solo artist.


With an unparalleled catalogue of pop hits including Angels, RockDJ, Kids (with Kylie Minogue), Feel, Better Man, Love My Life, Supreme and countless more career-defining smash singles, the Let Me Entertain You superstar does exactly that!


“Australia is one of my favourite places in the world to tour; I feel so at home there and hugely appreciate the warm, loving welcome I always receive. I can’t wait to be back in Adelaide to perform at the VALO Adelaide 500 in 2023 and spend some time with my fans”, says Robbie.


The iconic artist entertained fans at the AFL Grand Final in late September. Delivering a mind-blowing set of hit after hit, Robbie well and truly reminded us that the hype is real, he is the ultimate showman, and he’s here to entertain us all!


With his new album XXV released earlier this year, Robbie celebrates twenty-five years as a solo artist. A journey through his career-defining catalogue, featuring multiple No.1 hit singles and fan favourites, the songs of XXV offer a fresh and illuminating perspective, having been newly orchestrated by Jules Buckley, Guy Chambers and Steve Sidwell, and re-recorded with the acclaimed Metropole Orkest in the Netherlands.


South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas said that securing Robbie Williams for the 2023 event cemented VALO Adelaide 500’s reputation as one of Australia’s pre-eminent entertainment festivals renowned for its race and rock format.


“We made a commitment to not only bring back the great race that is the Adelaide 500 but, also, make it an event which will bring our events sector roaring back to life,” he said.


“And we have done this in securing one of the world’s best entertainers to celebrate the 2023 VALO Adelaide 500 with Robbie Williams performing at the event.”


Last on tour in Australia and New Zealand in 2018 on The Heavy Entertainment Show World Tour and more recently, performing two exclusive nights in Melbourne for his Better Man biopic, Robbie is raring to deliver his live show down under in 2023.


“So rarely, these days, do you see someone smash it to such a high and palpable degree.


So rarely does it feel as though the stars – man, mood and moment – align to create such pure, concentrated entertainment.” – VICE 


“There was so much joy and frivolity in this concert that it’s hard to know where to begin…” – Sydney Morning Herald
