Robbie Williams is to launch his new collection of swing songs with a performance at the London Palladium, a venue famously played by Rat Pack stars such as Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.

The 39-year-old singer will play the famous theatre next month ahead of the release of his new album Swings Both Ways.

Williams, who is due to release his new album on November 18, will appear with "special guests" as they perform tracks which include classics and new songs which he has written with Guy Chambers.

Among the names who feature on his album are Lily Allen, Michael Buble, Kelly Clarkson, Olly Murs and Rufus Wainwright, while the classic songs include Puttin' On The Ritz and Dream A Little Dream.
