He might not be the real Robbie Williams but it’s worth letting Andy James entertain you at Mecca Dagenham next week.

The singer is back at the Cook Road venue with his double tribute act to belt out Williams’ and Michael Buble’s greatest hits. He will wow the crowd with a 40 minute set of Buble classics before playing a whole hour of Robbie classics from over the years.

“The last time I was there it was a very successful show and this time I will be doing a lot more Robbie Williams,” Andy said. He will kick off with Robbie’s early releases such as Let Me Entertain You and She’s The One, before moving on to some more recent singles including You Know Me and Candy.

“It’s all the hits and stuff everyone wants to to dance to and it’s usually just a fantastic party night,” Andy said.

He became a professional tribute artist five years ago and hasn’t looked back since, touring all over the country, and even sometimes abroad.

“I love it,” Andy admitted. “I even had the pleasure of singing with Robbie’s dad on a few occasions, which is a real highlight for me.

“I’ve always sung but doing the tribute act is what has given me the chance to come out more because no one cares who you are, but everyone loves artists like Robbie and Michael.”
