RICK ASTLEY LIVE AFTER EVENING RACING ON FRIDAY 13 AUGUST 2021

 

With the planned reopening of large-scale events scheduled for late June, as a precautionary measure, Rick Astley’s Newmarket Nights show will be moving from Friday 25 June to Friday 13 August 2021.

 

His era-defining classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ topped charts the world over and catapulted the 80’s icon on a journey that would encompass 8 consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales. Rick Astley will be headlining at Newmarket Racecourses on 13 August 2021.

 

Newmarket Nights 2021 are sponsored by our racing sponsor Rich Energy and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

 

Tickets can be purchased on the day from our official sellers. Card payment only.

ABOUT RICK ASTLEY

After stepping aside to focus on his family, he shot back to #1 almost 30 years later with his Platinum-selling album ‘50’. Last month, he released his career-spanning compilation ‘The Best of Me’, which also included an independently recorded set of reimagined interpretations of his songs, old and new.

 

2019 saw Rick complete a gargantuan 38-date stadium tour as special guest to Take That, during which he played to over 500,000 people. Showing his mass appreciation across genres, he also graced the main stage of the legendary Reading Festival this summer, performing ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ with one of the worlds biggest rock bands, Foo Fighters.

 

Selling over 100,000 tickets to his own UK headline shows since releasing ‘50’, his forthcoming tour dates include gigs in Australia and Japan as well as his first ever show in New Zealand, before arriving at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 25 June 2021.
