A Robbie Williams fan has tragically died at a concert on the first night of the singer’s tour.

The ‘Angels’ singer, 49, burst onto the scene in the 1990s as a member of British boy band Take That before finding worldwide success as a solo artist.

Known for hits such as ‘Rock DJ’, ‘Candy’ and ‘Feel’, Williams has established himself as one of the best-selling British singer-songwriters of all time – having sold over 75 million records worldwide as well as setting a world record by selling 1.6 million concert tickets in just one day.

He recently kicked off the Australian leg of his XXV tour, but upsettingly, one of his fans was killed during the performance.

During the show at the Allianz Stadium in Moore Park on November 16, a woman in her 70s – alleged to be Robyn Hall – reportedly fell down six rows of seating, as per The Guardian.

She was transported to Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital in critical condition and she was placed in an induced coma.

St Vincent’s Hospital has since confirmed that the woman died on November 20.

A spokesperson from New South Wales Ambulance said (via Sky News): “About 10:30pm Thursday, November 16, NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to Driver Avenue, Paddington.

“Paramedics treated a woman in her 70s for head injuries before transporting her to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition.”

A spokesman for the stadium has told The Sunday Morning Herald that the woman lost her footing while trying to climb over some seats.

They told the outlet: “Rather than use stairs, the woman attempted to step over seating rows. She lost her footing and fell.

“This is a terribly sad incident and our thoughts and wishes are with the patron and their family during this time.”

The spokesman added that a venue staff member and a nearby guest – who was a qualified medical professional – ensured that she was in care about 60 seconds after her fall.

Posting on Facebook her son Michael shared that his ‘best friend’ is no longer with him.

While a family friend – who remained anonymous – described her as a ‘beautiful human’ to The Sunday Morning Herald.

They said: “She was one of those ones who looked 50 but was 70. She took care of herself and didn’t need carers.

“Robyn was the most beautiful human I have ever met. Through all adversity, she smiled, hugged and laughed her way through.

“Broken hearts amongst all her family and friends, she will be missed by all who knew her.”

Williams is yet to comment on the incident.

Following the incident, the ‘Love Story’ singer took to Instagram to address the tragic incident.

Her story read: “I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show.

“I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this. There’s very little information I have, other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young.

“I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.

“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
