Over three decades into his blockbuster musical career, the British singer and songwriter is
consistently bringing the house down, performing internationally with everyone from a-ha to Foo Fighters. Winning over fresh fans – touring with Take That in 2019, he played to audiences of more than 500,000. Taking over new platforms: 3 million TikTok followers don’t lie. Having new hits – his entirely self-written and self-produced 2016 album 50 was a UK Number One that sold 400,000 copies.
In summer 2021, around the 34th anniversary of its release, Never Gonna Give You Up hit one billion views on YouTube. Astley’s debut solo single, a Number One in 25 countries in 1987, joined an elite club of all-time musical classics from the pre-internet age that have reached that landmark – and is in fact one of only 23 songs ever to have reached that milestone.
We cannot wait to party along with Rick Astley on Sunday!
