The ‘Let Me Entertain You’ singer held an intimate concert at East London’s Troxy as he was bestowed the prestigious title, which he will officially collect at next February’s Brit Awards.
And the undoubted highlight of the evening came when he was joined by his old bandmates to perform their old classic ‘Back For Good’ and recent hit ‘The Flood’, which many fans captured footage of on their phones.
Sadly though, former member Jason Orange chose to skip the chance to reunite the whole five piece.
After the show, Gary tweeted:
Of course, this isn’t the first time Robbie, who is poised to land at number one on this week’s album chart with ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’, has rejoined Take That since he quit the band in 1995.
After mending his long-running feud with Gary, the pair released a single together in 2010 called ‘Shame’, which led to Robbie recording a new album with the rest of the band.
‘Progress’ was released later that year and the group later embarked on a European tour, before Robbie’s temporary return came to an end.
He recently hinted he could record with the band again, telling The Sun: “I have plans, I have a tour, there’s stuff to be doing. I don’t think it’ll be next year but I think it’ll be at some point.
Highlights of Robbie’s concert will air on ITV in December.
