Singer Robbie Williams has announced his first solo tour in six years and says the aim is to seal his place in pop history.

Williams' last was the Close Encounter tour in 2006 and his next one will kick−start in summer next year.

"It's legacy time. The album's called Take The Crown and I want to seal my place in pop history and deliver a tour of great magnitude while I still can," thesun.co.uk quoted Williams as saying.

Williams will start his gig June 19 at Etihad Stadium, Manchester and after a couple of more performances in the country he will travel to Europe.

"I'm very excited. I've been lethargic for the last couple of albums and it didn't look like I was bothered − but I am really bothered now," he said.
