Robbie Williams sings “Angels” for deceased fan (video)

“It breaks my heart,” said the Brit before singing his hit single.

Robbie Williams dedicated the song “Angels” to late fan Robyn Hall at his concert on November 22nd in Melbourne. The 70-year-old died at Williams’ gig on November 16th.

Died after falling at a concert

What happened before: The fan died after a Robbie Williams show on November 16th in Sydney, Australia. The 70-year-old woman apparently tried to climb over several seats at the concert and fell down six rows of seats. She was immediately taken to the hospital and put into an induced coma, but ultimately doctors were unable to save her life. The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are currently no longer known.

“She was someone like you.”

Before performing the 1997 song “Angels” in Melbourne, Williams let the crowd know: “I heard the tragic news this week that a fan died in an accident after the show in Sydney.” He also explained that he felt to “be one” with all the people who come to the gigs to hear his music live. So he said, “So when something like this happens, it breaks my heart. I’ve been thinking about this an awful lot throughout the entire show tonight. I want to give Robyn and Robyn’s family a big round of applause and lots of love from me and my band. Let’s all sing along, she was someone like you who came to the concert, just like you tonight. And I think she deserves a big song and tonight it’s for her,” he said, then cued up “Angels.”
