Robbie Williams breaks world record

Robbie Williams’ BBC Electric Proms performance, which was broadcast to over 250 cinemas across 23 countries, has set a new Guinness World Record for the most simultaneous cinematic screenings of a live concert ever.

The sell-out London concert is also being screened at an 8,000 seat auditorium in Mexico City, 18 cinemas in Australia, 20 cinemas in South Africa and seven cinemas in New Zealand.

Thousands of the entertainer’s fans across Europe simultaneously experienced the concert in high-definition which was the largest cinematic live music event of its kind ever seen.

Robbie’s Electric Proms performance showcased new material from his forthcoming album Reality Killed the Video Star as well as his classic tracks accompanied by a string section, horn section and a full band, all under the musical direction of Trevor Horn.

The last time he entered the record books was when his epic Close Encounters tour in 2006 sold 1.6 million tickets in one day.
