RICK ASTLEY IS COMING TO NEWMARKET RACECOURSES TO HEADLINER AFTER EVENING RACING ON FRIDAY 31st JULY 2020!
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. 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 31st July 2020
