Robbie Williams to headline huge Knebworth Festival in 2003!
07 November 2002
to a report in today's Sun newspaper, the event is expected to attract up to 500,000 fans, double the amount of people that
attended Oasis' legendary shows at Knebworth in August 1996, previously the biggest ever seen in Britain.
Industry insiders believe that Williams is intent on 'getting one over' on Oasis, following a long running feud that began when they branded him "a fat dancer from Take That" and was recently re-ignited when Liam Gallagher's girlfriend Natalie Appleton (formerly engaged to Williams) spilt the beans on intimate details of their relationship in her autobiography. Now the Gallaghers' popularity is waning, whilst Williams goes from strength to strength, this is an ideal opportunity to rub mud in the faces of his nemeses.
The full line-up of the event is due to be announced on November 18th, the day Robbie releases his new album 'Escapology'. He will appear on July 31st.
