With only eight days notice, a long-standing client of UKNY was hosting a private summer party in the West of Ireland and required a globally recognised star to perform. At the last minute UKNY managed to secure Robbie Williams and his entire band, despite him being on a major Eastern European tour selling out 70,000 capacity shows. Our client’s main request was that Robbie’s performance was to be an absolute secret with no one finding out, a task in itself, arranging for a global pop star to fly into a small rural airport with 60 people. In order to maintain the surprise and due to UKNY’s close friendship with Robbie and his management, we even convinced Robbie to have all of his equipment rebranded for the performance and for no Robbie songs to be sung at sound check leaving no RW trace.
UKNY was on-hand from the get-go to oversee all of Robbie’s arrangements and ensure the client’s expectations were met. Robbie performed a greatest hits style set with a 22-piece live band for 90 minutes. It was a complete surprise for all guests – nobody knew! Following Robbie’s performance, the client and VIP guests joined Robbie in his dressing room for drinks and photographs.
The show was delivered with less than two weeks’ notice and UKNY worked around the clock to ensure everything ran smoothly. Contact UKNY Music to book Robbie for your private party, corporate event, wedding or festival.
