Having already played a string of smaller venues across the US earlier on in the year, Robbie returned for his second leg later on in the autumn. He'd done a string of successful television interviews across the country, but came unstuck with a lack of airplay across the US radio stations.

In Canada things were proving more successful - gigs were full to capacity and he'd won himself a large and loyal following, with a succession of rave reviews.

The second leg of his US tour saw him playing larger venues with bigger capacities, but the US wasn't catching on and Robbie was actually becoming fond of his anonymity there.

"No one knew who I was so I was able to let my guard down and be myself. I chatted to people and they chatted back because they wanted to, not because of who I am. People seemed to be more genuine and that's something I miss.

"But the best thing I did was just walk. In all seriousness, it was so refreshing to be able to go out and walk down the street without worrying."

Reviews

"There was a time when Robbie Williams seemed to have hit the buffers and talk of him and a solo career was little more than a joke. But now the man who was voted (male) Rear of the Year and landed a £1.25 million contract to promote a certain cola all in three days looks set to crack the toughest nut of all - America."
The Daily Telegraph, October 23rd, 1999

"Pop superstar Robbie Williams stunned a US audience when he walked on stage stark naked. The cheeky performer bared all as 3,000 fans took to their seats for a sell-out show in Atlanta, Georgia. With the house lights up and the roadies still adjusting the sound system, grinning Robbie, 25, emerged with just his hands covering his naughty bits..."
The Daily Mirror, October 27th, 1999

"They ready themselves for the magic of Angels. As a solemn piano begins to chime, knowing what a showman knows, Williams holds the mic out to the crowd and the massed voices surge up to take the first verse as they would in London or Manchester."
Q Magazine, December 1999
