Entertainer for over thirty years

Or to another fan: “Are you twenty-nine? Where do you know me from? Sorry here tonight will not perform Harry Styles! And then, always to her: “Please, when you get home, tell your friends about me.” Williams is ironic about his almost fifty years when, sitting on stage, he explains, “It’s not because I’m old, it’s because there’s too much pasta.” It is impossible not to be amazed by his enthusiasm.
