BRITISH superstar Robbie Williams has warned his fans he can't face being on the road again - because his last world tour nearly killed him.
The Rudebox star has also revealed he probably won't release a proper album this year.
He said he enjoyed stuffing himself with mince pies in his LA mansion over Christmas - and is tempted to quit showbiz for good.
Robbie told fans on his website: "There might not be a proper album out this year and there definitely won't be a tour any time soon. F*** that, the last one nearly killed me.
"There will be some kind of something this year.
"I might just put the B-sides to the next album out first online. Then put an album out in 2009. Which means you won't be seeing a lot of me on stage for a while. Sorry folks.
''I do have to say, the more time I'm spending away from public life, the more I like it. Unfortunately I have a massive competitive urge that wants me to put out three albums a year.
''Which one will win? I'm sure as soon as I get bored I'll be back. But right now there's a soy vanilla latte and mince pie waiting for me in the kitchen.''
Robbie went into rehab two months after his 2006 Close Encounters tour ended in December that year.
