Robbie Williams, Bush, Prodigy, Iron Maiden, Others To Take Soccer Field

Robbie Williams and Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris on the same playing field? Oh, you know something’s going to go down.

The two men are slated to join members of Bush, Blur, Prodigy, Simply Red, 911, Five, and others at the annual Music Industry Soccer Six football match next month in London. The game is set for Premier League Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge on May 29.

Last year, the group James captured the title after knocking off Blur, and the reigning champs will return this year to defend their title.

The game is a benefit for the British charity Help a London Child.
