Robbie's first Australasian tour took on a more relaxed mood than the previous tours of this year. "Four shows in two weeks," said tour manager Fransky at the time. "It's like a holiday tour really. Trying to get everyone off the beach to do a gig isn't easy!"

Bar a few cultural differences regarding nudity in Singapore and some choice language in Taiwan, the Far Eastern crowds embraced Robbie with open arms.

Australia provided a complete culture reversal as the tour picked up the pace of a 'normal' tour. In contrast to the early days, Robbie's entourage were now taking up an entire hotel.

In New Zealand, where Franksy once described Robbie as the biggest star ever and 'like the equivalent of Madonna and Princess Di rolled into one', he played to a manic 110,000 fans. Tongue firmly in cheek (but not far wrong!), David Enthoven mused: "We've sold a record to everybody and his sheep!"

Robbie's return to the UK saw the release of Swing When You're Winning, which went on to prove doubters wrong by becoming his fastest-selling album to date, whilst his duet with Nicole Kidman continued to sit comfortably in the singles charts...
