Oxford Street retailers today announced that on Monday 5 November Robbie Williams is to switch on the UK's most spectacular and iconic Christmas Lights on London's Oxford Street.
The former Take That star, who has sold over 60 million solo albums worldwide, will take to the stage in front of thousands of shoppers eager to be a part of the Christmas celebrations on the world's most famous high street. In addition to performing some of his hit singles, Robbie will treat shoppers to a live performance of his single, Candy ' a Christmas number one contender taken from his new album 'Take the Crown' ' released on 5th November.
The Marmite Oxford Street Christmas Lights, which for the first time gives people the chance to appear within the mile long interactive display, will kick start the festive season in style with tens of thousands gathering on Oxford Street for the switch-on of the 300,000 bulbs of light that are hoisted above the street, signalling the start of Christmas in London's West End.
This year's switch-on will be a star-studded affair with pop sensation Leona Lewis, and four-piece boy band Lawson, supporting the headline act and treating the crowds to a variety of hits to get the celebrations underway.
Robbie Williams said: "Oxford Street is a fantastic place to do your Christmas shopping and it's great to be part of the celebrations. I can't believe I am turning on the lights! 'Take the Crown' is released on the same day - 5th November - and I'm looking forward to performing for the amazing crowds on London's Oxford Street.".
