The X Factor, Robbie Williams

For one night only! Robbie Williams will perform with former Take That bandmates Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald.

The X Factor judge Robbie Williams will reunite with his former Take That bandmates Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald at the London launch of their musical The Band, which is based around the boyband's greatest hits.

The Band has become one of the most successful theatre tours ever since it started in September 2017. Now it is transferring to London's West End at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

"The show is a fantastic night out and has turned out better than we could have ever hoped," Gary told The Evening Standard. "The story will definitely surprise people who are seeing it for the first time. We’re so proud of it."

All ticket profits from the special gala night on December 4th will be donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation which works in 23 countries to combat the stigma around the HIV virus, provide treatment and assistance, and motivate governments to help end Aids.

Elton's husband David Furnish will co-host the event at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

The Band, set in 1992, follows five teenage year girls who reunite after 25 years apart and try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting the boyband whose music became the soundtrack to their lives.

The Band includes such Take That hits as Never Forget. Back for Good, A Million Love Songs, Greatest Day. The Flood, Relight My Fire, Shine and Rule the World.

Robbie last performed with Take That last year for the finale of BBC One's talent competition, Let It Shine, with contestants competing for a chance to star on stage in The Band.

The Band will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until January 12
