Robbie will play a one-off concert at Southend's Cliffs Pavilion on Sunday 16th September.
The Essex date is one of just three smaller concerts Robbie will play next month, alongside gigs in Glasgow and Yorkshire and sees the Take That star revisiting some of the places he played at the beginning of his solo career in 1997.
