While he can’t reveal too much, Robbie told a press conference in Sydney on Tuesday that, “It’s acting… I have a TV show I want to do that may or may not happen. At the moment it is happening, and I’m very excited about it!”
The star, who toured Australia last year with his Swing show, says that this tour - kicking off in Perth on Friday – is “all the hits,” adding that his biggest hit – Angels – closes the show.
“That means it’s the end of show and I can go home,” he deadpanned.
The show itself – a collection of all his biggest hits - is incredibly physically demanding for the self-confessed former “fat pop star.”
“I do the show and I go to bed,” the 41 year old star continued.
“It’s a really demanding show, it takes everything out of me. I don’t want to let anybody down.”
“A lot of times it’s terrifying being up there, being the conduit for everyone’s good evening - that they have paid their hard-earned cash to come see me – I genuinely give everything I’ve got every night… and then I go to bed so I can do it again the next time I get on stage!”
For the four-and-a-half weeks he is in Australia the star will be without his family but joked that his wife Ayda Field would celebrate their son Charlie’s first birthday later this month with a cardboard cut-out of him, and “Charlie won’t even notice, he’s only one!”
