British pop star Robbie Williams was forced to change his live show due to safety concerns.

The Take That singer kicked off a massive solo tour with a show in Dublin, Ireland on Friday night (14Jun13) ahead of dates all across Europe and his native U.K.

However, Williams has now revealed his elaborate Take The Crown shows had to be changed because of health and safety regulations and insurance issues.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "I want this show to be the best on Earth at that particular moment with the funds and means available to us. I think we have managed that on this tour. Health and safety wouldn't have some of the ideas. I wanted to come from the back of the stadium to the stage off the roof. Insurance reasons stopped that too."
