Rick Astley remains one of the most successful solo artists ever to have emerged from Britain. His three decades in the spotlight have seen the music legend enter the record books for his early ground-breaking chart success, garner rapturous critical acclaim and sell-out arenas on almost every continent, as he continues to leave an indelible mark on pop-culture.
2016 has been a whirlwind for year for Rick; from a run of shows in April that all sold out immediately to a BBC Radio 2 A-list single ‘Keep Singing’ which raked in nearly 1.8m views on VEVO. Plus his 2017 UK spring tour is already sold out! Rick and his band have a fantastic live show which will have everyone (including the trees!) up and dancing to the classic hits as well as acclaimed new material from the number one album ‘50’.
