"As showmen go, Williams is a master who stages his own musical comedy with self-effacing aplomb. In the rap to Kylie duet 'Kids' he describes himself as an "honorary Sean Connery", but when he tries on suaveness for size, it feels like a piss-take. He's more like an honorary Benny Hill or Max Wall or even Tucker Jenkins - a cheeky chappy class clown who uses farce to win an audience's affection. He's rude like Benny, a bit of a buffoon like Wall, and, like Tucker, he's the loveable bad boy next door. And for all of these reasons tonight, it's difficult not to like him."
NME, October 2000

"Middle-aged women ("Let me entertain you, Robbie," one shouted lustily after Karma Killer) completed the smorgasbord of the Great British public, all hollering along to Strong, No Regrets and the latest single - Kids, his duet with Kylie - with unfettered enthusiasm. This audience certainly lends weight to the notion that if there's a cultural icon that unifies Britain right now, it isn't the Royal Family or Coronation Street, it's Williams. Once an underdog, he's now the mutt's nuts."
The Guardian, October 2000

"This was a spectacular performance driven by the singer's showmanship and his biggest, most buoyant backing band to date. Williams has three studio albums under his diamond-studded belt and this set was liberally sprinkled with huge hit singles."
The Daily Mail, October 2000
