The white soul boy who was a key player in the Stock, Aitken & Waterman stable in the late 80s and is now enjoying a comeback.
In a career spanning over 30 years, Rick Astley has sold over 40 million records worldwide. His classic Never Gonna Give You Up has had over 1.2 billion views on YouTube alone.
In 2016, Rick Astley surprised the world (and himself) with the release of his smash hit album, 50. The record soared to the top of the album charts, sold over 300,000 copies and was one of the biggest-selling releases of that year.
Rick released a follow-up to the hit record in 2018 titled Beautiful Life which boasts 12 new tracks written, produced and played by Astley himself. The following year, he released another new album entitled The Best Of Me.
Announcing very special big band shows in 2022, multi-million-selling Astley embraces one of his biggest passions - the golden age of big band and swing.
In June 2023 Astley announced his ninth studio album, Are We There Yet?, set for release on 6 October.
