RICK Astley has announced details of his Greatest Hits Tour 2020.

The 11-date arena tour will see Rick perform to a combined audience of more than 80,000 people, and includes a London show at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

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.

His shows are a celebration, mixing the famous hits that he made his name with alongside current fan favourites. Astley’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.
