'I'm f**ked!': Exhausted Robbie Williams forced to stop mid-concert
‘I’m f**ked!’: Exhausted Robbie Williams forced to stop mid-concert due to ‘long Covid’
Robbie Williams was forced to stop a concert only a few songs in due to being exhausted from ‘long Covid’.
The former Take That frontman was performing at the Pinkpop music festival in the Netherlands on Saturday.
But before singing his song Monsoon, the 49-year-old asked his band to pause and announced: ‘No, stop stop. I’m f**ked. I’m f**ked.’
He explained: ‘It’s long Covid, I’ve got long Covid. It’s not my f**king age, you f**kers.’
After a quick break, Robbie started the song again and performed a further 16 hits including Rock DJ, Kids and Angels.

Robbie has had Covid-19 twice – in April 2020, when he was home in Los Angeles, and in January 2021, while he was on holiday in the Caribbean island of St Barts with wife Ayda and their four children.
He told fans in 2020 that ‘the mental struggle has been the hardest bit about isolation, making sure we don’t slip into our own dark holes’.
Robbie’s performance comes after his neighbours have accused him of ‘environmental vandalism’ over plans to prune his garden – amid an ongoing planning feud with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.
The singer and the guitarist, 79, have been embroiled in a bitter feud ever since the former moved into his Holland Park home in 2013.
Robbie reportedly seeks to cut back 14 plants, saying that they are stopping the light from reaching his £17.5million west London mansion.
He has asked Kensington and Chelsea council for permission and planners are set to visit his residence soon, The Sun reported.
However his proposals have been met with dissent from neighbours.
One wrote: ‘Hello there, I think these trees should be left as chopping down healthy trees is an act of environmental vandalism.

‘Shame on anyone wanting to destroy our leafy friends. They give us life – we should respect theirs.’
MailOnline has contacted Robbie’s representatives for comment.
In February, his attempts to build an underground swimming pool and gym were opposed by Jimmy.
The plans were initially passed by the council but the former Take That star was then told he had to apply for the deeds of his property to be legally changed for the building work to go ahead.
Jimmy claimed the vibrations from the works could damage the ancient paintings and frescoes in his Grade I listed property, where he has lived since 1972, according to The Sun.
The guitarist also submitted plans in April last year to reshape a Bay tree in front of his home – which was approved a month later with the council calling works ‘routine maintenance’.

But just two weeks before Jimmy submitted his application, Robbie was denied planning permission to cut back a 70ft Robinia tree in his garden.
Jimmy’s mansion was previously owned by poet John Betjeman and Dumbledore actor Richard Harris.
He outbid David Bowie to buy it in 1972, aged just 28.
The Tower House was designed between 1875 and 1881 by ‘art architect’ William Burges as his home – and the rooms have themes such as Time, Love and Literature.
