While music fans and insiders here in the U.S. were being dazzled by the MTV Video Music Awards last night, a different kind of event was happening across the pond. The London suburb of Twickenham hosted the Help For Heroes charity concert to benefit troops involved in war efforts. The audience of 60,000 took in short sets by “Heartbeat” heartthrob Enrique Iglesias, The Saturdays, Alexandra Burke, James Blunt and headliner Robbie Williams, who brought out fellow Take That member Gary Barlow for the first live performance of their duet “Shame.” Watch Enrique, Robbie and Gary after the jump.
Enrique sings his aptly-titled ballad “Hero,” and gets the crowd of 60,000 to join him.
Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow appear on stage together for the first time since Williams quit Take That in 1995. It was announced over the summer that he’s back on board for the band’s upcoming sixth studio album.
