It's A Date

It's August. We know. We can tell by looking at the month on our 2007 Robbie Williams calendar. But what happens when August turns into September, then winter rolls on and before you know it, it's New Year already. And what happens then, when your calendar runs out of days?

For you, it's a no-brainer. You'll simply be able to turn the pages of your new Robbie calendar and the year will begin again, no days missed. And what will it be like? Normally you won't find out until you've bought your copy from the shop, when you unwrap it. But as a special summer treat we can let you know now what next year is going to look like - and we're not talking crystal balls either.

As an exclusive to, we've got all the images for the upcoming 2008 calendar right here. Get this lined up for 2008 and your wall will thank you.

Tour photographer Simon Niblett took a lot of the fantastic images for 2008 on last year's record-breaking Close Encounters tour.

The cover is taken from Robbie's December 2006 dates in Adelaide. Capturing Robbie on the road, it whets your appetite for the year to come.

January's image was taken, again, by Simon, this time backstage in Dublin, at the opening date of the European leg of last year's mammoth tour. Robbie is fresh-faced and relaxed - ready for a punishing year on the road.

You might recognise February's image - taken on stage in Amsterdam by photographer Stephanie Pistel - which was the picture on the cover of the exclusive Inner Sanctum subscription DVD.

March's picture of Robbie is taken, not on the tour, but on the set of last year's video shoot for the stunning Lovelight video. Filmed at Vienna's Semper depot, it's another photo by Simon Niblett.

It's an April shower for the next picture, taken by Simon again, on stage in Munich. The date on the Close Encounters tour was hit by a downpour - but rain definitely didn't stop play as Robbie put in a cracking performance.

May's image shows Robbie relaxing with a football, backstage before his Amsterdam gig. Stephanie Pistel took the image again.

Relaxed before his show in Adelaide, Simon Niblett took Robbie's June image backstage in December last year. You'd never guess he was about to play for 55ꯠ people.

Taking a closer look at Robbie's beautifully manicured false nails, you might recognise the July shot from the She's Madonna video. In fact the picture, by Johnny Buzzerio, was taken backstage at the video shoot as LA's Mr T's Bowling.

There's another brilliant Stephanie Pistel photo for August - this one features Robbie in action, on-stage in Amsterdam. Holding a football aloft, it's from his nightly shooting competition with pal Jonathon Wilkes.

If the tracksuit in September's photograph looks familiar, that's because you'll recognise it from the Rudebox shoot. This one is taken by Charlie Lightening, the cameraman behind many of the behind-the-scenes clips filmed on the Close Encounters tour.

October's stunning pair of images were taken by Simon Niblett, and show Robbie on-stage in South America. The first pic was taken during last October's Close Encounters tour-dates in Argentina. Look closely and you can spot the band in-between's Robbie's legs. The second picture was taken onstage in Santiago, Chile, almost at the same moment.

Pretoria, South America is the location for Simon Niblett's next shot of Robbie. Another candid shot, it shows him at the very start of the tour, back in April 2006.

And the year wraps up with Robbie taking applause on-stage in Buenos Aires. It's the end of the show, and the end of calendar. Roll on 2009!
