[an error occurred while processing this directive]London, Dec 14 (ANI): British pop star Robbie Williams, who has admitted in the past that touring always takes a toll on his mental health and vowed never to go back on the road, has announced he"ll be going tour. The singer"s 2006 Close Encounters tour saw him cancel a string of dates in Asia due to exhaustion. The tour ended with a stint in rehab for the singer, who checked into a clinic in Arizona to help deal with his prescription drug habit.
He said at that time: "I cannot imagine touring in the near future. I've smashed my head against a wall too many times and I know it's harder than I am. "I felt great when I started to promote a record but it soon began to kill me. I felt worse when on tour. I suffered a nervous breakdown and checked into rehab." However, Williams told the audience at a gig in London that he is planning another set of live shows.
"I will be going on tour. That will be happening. When, where, I don't know. But it will be happening. Definitely before 2012," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
