Superstar Robbie Williams to play at the Red Cross Gala

British popstar Robbie Williams is headlining this year’s Red Cross Gala, one of the biggest events on the Monaco social calendar.  

For 74 years, this summertime charity soirée has attracted the great and the good of the Principality as well as top drawer talent. 

Some of the biggest names in music have been part of the Gala, including Joséphine Baker, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder, Sir Elton John, Duran Duran, Sting, The Scorpions, Lionel Richie, John Legend… And now it’s Robbie Williams’ time to shine at a sold-out concert event at the emblematic Salle des Etoiles.  


Pop icon and former Take That singer-songwriter Williams is set to take the stage on 29th July in a set that will not only feature songs from his recent album XXV, but also mark 25 stellar years as a solo artist.  

The album is comprised of many fan favourites that have been re-recorded with Dutch jazz and pop orchestra Metropole Orkest, the biggest full-time ensemble of its kind in the world.  


In addition to a rocking good time on the entertainment front, the night will run a tombola offering up some pretty spectacular luxury prizes, such as jewellery and art, and which constitutes a major feature of the fund-raising drive the Gala gets its name from.  

This is a truly prestigious event that has for decades brought together the Princely Grimaldi family with personalities from the Principality and beyond. Prince Albert II will certainly be in attendance as the official opener of the ball, leading guests onto the dancefloor come midnight.
