With special guest K T Tunstall
Rick Astley has proven to be a consistently huge draw in the live arena. He’s sold over 100,000 tickets to his UK headline shows since releasing his chart-topping album ‘50’ in 2016. This year has seen him complete a gargantuan 38-date stadium tour as special guest to Take That in which he played to over 500,000 people. Meanwhile, festivals have included a headline show at Kew The Music, plus the Isle of Wight, Pub in the Park and Chris Evans’ Carfest.
His shows are a celebration, mixing the famous hits that he made his name with alongside current fan favourites. Rick’s wide-ranging love of music means that his sets are often peppered with some inspired covers - as vintage as AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ and as contemporary as Calvin Harris and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s ‘Giant’.
It’s a crowd-pleasing cocktail powered by his famous vocal, easy-going charm and incendiary live band. Previous live reviews have described his show at “joyous” (Evening Standard) and “clever and soulful” (Daily Telegraph).
