Robbie Williams to receive BRITs Icon Award

British popstar Robbie Williams has landed a special BRIT Award in recognition of his music career.
The Rock DJ singer will receive the BRITs Icon Award, which honours artists who have had a “lasting impact on the nation’s culture”, at a special event at London’s Troxy venue on 7 November (16).
Robbie, who will also play a special gig at the event, follows in the footsteps of previous Icon Award honourees Elton John and the late David Bowie.
“It’s a real honour for me to be given this award and I can’t want to play songs from my new album, and from my catalogue, at Troxy,” the 42-year-old tells British trade magazine Music Week.
The pop star holds the record for the most wins at the main BRIT Awards ceremonies, winning 17 gongs during his solo career and his time with boyband Take That.
BRIT Awards boss Geoff Taylor says, “Robbie is our most successful-ever BRIT Award winner – with a remarkable 17 BRIT Awards to date. His enduring appeal and his exceptional track record of hit singles and albums give him a special place at the very heart of British popular music.”
The special event will be broadcast on Britain’s ITV network in December (16), while the main BRIT Awards ceremony will take place in February next year (17).
