Robbie Williams to perform in Portugal for first time in over ten years

Robbie Williams is to perform in Portugal for the first time in over ten years, according to the portugalnews.com.

The singer will be playing the Rock in Rio Lisbon concert, which will take place on May 25 next year. Williams, 39, will be headlining the festival, which will take place at Lisbon's Bela Vista park.

The news will come welcome to ex-pats who are a fan of Robbie, as the star hasn't performed in the country since 2003. Other acts set to appear at the event include big names such as Justin Timberlake and indie band Arcade Fire.

As well as music, the event aims to promote sustainability and environmental responsibility. Organisers hope to inform visitors that big changes can be made to the environment, with small everyday changes.

Rock in Rio is one of the world's largest musical festivals, also having events in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Madrid, Spain. The festival was first held in Lisbon back in 2004, when high-profile acts such as Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Black Eyed Peas and Britney Spears performed at the event.

This year's festival will take place on May 23, 25, 30 and 31, as well as June 1.

The new comes as it was also revealed this week that Beyonce will be bringing her 'Mrs Carter' show to Portugal next year, according to tamworthherald.co.uk. The star will perform at the Lisbon's Meo Arena on March 26 and 27, 2014.
