Rick Astley announces huge UK tour (2017)

Story by Jack Foley

RICK Astley has announced a new 17-date tour for March and April 2017, including a date at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

This follows what’s already been a whirlwind for year for Astley; from an original run of shows in April that all sold out immediately to a BBC Radio 2 A list single Keep Singing which raked in nearly 1.8m views on VEVO and has been streamed over 600,000 times on Spotify.

All of this has been building anticipation for the release of the Grammy-nominated star’s new album 50 on June 10th on BMG.

This is Rick’s first studio album in over a decade and marks a return to his musical roots – marrying Astley’s distinctive, soulful vocals with Gospel influences in an entirely self-penned album that draws on his experiences and inspirations, and showcases his unmatched musicianship with the star playing every instrument heard on the album.

50 also features second single Angels on My Side.

Tickets for Rick Astley’s new 2017 tour go on sale on Friday, June 10 at 9.30am.
