Robbie's return

Robbie Williams will return to the stage tonight following a bout of food poisoning.

Robbie's spokesperson says he will be on stage with the band this evening in Amsterdam.

Take That had been forced to cancel a show for the first time ever after Robbie Williams suffered a bout of food poisoning and fans will be delighted that he's recovered in time.

The singer became violently ill on Friday night and was unable to recover in time to perform in Copenhagen on Saturday night.

In a statement the guys said, "We are truly devastated to have had to cancel tonight's show in Denmark.  This is the first show that we have ever had to cancel in our career as a band.  It was a horrible decision to make and one we agonized over. On Friday night, Rob suffered serious food poisoning from something he had eaten after the show.  He was violently ill all night and well into the morning. Doctors visited him twice during the day and despite prescribed medication he was still vomiting at 4pm this afternoon.  The doctor insisted that he was not fit to perform tonight."

The band did consider going ahead without Robbie but decided it would against what the tour was all about.

"The five of us then had a decision to make: Should we go on with the show without Rob or should we cancel altogether?  What would be fairer to our fans?  What would people want?  It was a very, very difficult decision.  In the end we felt that as this tour is about the five of us being back together, and about celebrating that reunion, it would be wrong to go ahead with the show.  We also knew that no matter how hard we and our team worked, in the short time we had to make the necessary changes to this hugely complicated and technical production, the show could never be what we wanted it to be, and nor could it be what our fans expect and deserve from us."

The band added that they were "truly sorry from the bottom of our hearts" to those that had purchased tickets.
