Robbie Williams cries at his concert when remembering his addictions

Robbie Williams continues to tour and his current stop is Sydney. There, the singer made a harsh personal confession that led him to become emotional in the middle of the concert. Specifically, the ‘Angels’ singer has opened up about his fight against addiction and the important role his fans have played in helping him overcome it.

The artist performed before almost 40,000 people at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney, where he mentioned his visit to Australia last year to film his biopic ‘Better Man’. Williams confesses that he felt “overwhelmed” by seeing people attend his functions. «One of the main things that kept me on the planet was the fact that you guys came to see me and think I’m fine. “When there was little or no evidence in my own head, I could see it in your faces,” he revealed.

The singer thanked his Australian fans for helping him when he needed it most, and declared that he is now “the happiest” of his life. «I drank and took drugs to numb the pain and, to be honest, also to prevent the voice from taking over my head. I drank and took drugs, it was a quick trip to hell and in the end I had to stop drinking. “I had to stop taking drugs or else I was going to die,” the artist revealed.

This is not the first time Robbie Williams has spoken out about his addictions. A few weeks ago the singer premiered his documentary on Netflix, where he addresses his 25-year career and remembers past times.
