The trek will begin June 28-29 at the 54,000-capacity Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. Williams then swings through Europe before wrapping things up Aug. 9 in Dublin.
Tickets for the shows go on sale Nov. 23 to the general public, but a portion of seats are being held for members of Williams' Inner Sanctum fan organization. More information can be found on the artist's official Web site.
The site is also streaming "Escapology" as well as Williams' track-by-track comments. The set is the first in a new, multi-million dollar deal the artist signed last month with EMI and is the follow-up to 2001's "Swing When You're Winning," which the label says sold 5.5 million copies worldwide without a North American release.
According to a spokesperson, "Escapology" will arrive in North America in March via Virgin. The single "Feel" is expected to hit U.S. radio outlets in January.
