After the huge climax of Knebworth, Robbie took to the road to complete the final leg of his Weekends of Mass Distraction tour. The autumn leg was accidentally billed ‘Weekends of Mass Destruction' - hence the internal tour name - and support was provided by ‘80s pop legends Duran Duran.

A mentally unprepared Robbie found his first gigs a strain. He explained to biographer Chris Heath: "It was a bit like I'd literally been, say, flicking through the TV channels watching what was on the television, and then all of a sudden somebody had just plopped me on top of the stage with the cane and a nice new suit and a big haircut, and I was just about to do two hours."

Resisting the urge to walk off stage on the first night, he convinced himself to stay, but consequently cancelled his forthcoming tour of South America and South Africa.

Reviews

"Although Robbie admitted to the audience he was not in a particularly good mood, he was well able to "connect and talk to" his people, which he had earlier described in an interview as 30% of his show. Between and even during some of the songs, he was the irreverent, funny, honest and sentimental guy who is not afraid of making cheeky statements to the audience."
The Budapest Sun, November ‘03

"Last night, he performed the first of two Sydney concerts to 40,000 fans at Aussie Stadium. Dressed down in tatty jeans, a sleeveless T-shirt, sneakers and a hooded vest, Williams opened with an electric Let Me Entertain You...One lucky woman named Alison was hauled on stage by Williams for a long pash with the singer. "I do it every night, but you're the only one that hasn't stunk - you're a very good kisser," Williams said."
Melbourne Herald Sun, December ‘03

"Rockin' Robbie burst onto stage in Sydney last night as Britain's biggest male pop star performed for more than 55,000 people at Aussie Stadium in Moore Park. Robbie Williams's concert was such a hot ticket in Sydney that a number of celebrities crowded into the stadium alongside punters from across Australia. Tour organisers confirmed yesterday they had invited Prince Harry to the show, plus local entertainment stars including Kasey Chambers and Australian Idol finalist Shannon Noll."
