8 reasons to see Rick Astley at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena

Rick Astley is coming to Liverpool ending his 2023/24 tour at the M&S Bank Arena in March.

Rick Astley has announced he will be playing Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on 7 March 2024.   

With a staggering 40 million records sold globally, this North West-born singer has remained a household name for over three decades.

If you’re wondering why you absolutely need to catch the Rick live in action, we’ve got not one, but eight fantastic reasons for you.

Evolves with music

After 36 years since his initial rise to fame, Rick Astley has arguably become an even more significant presence in popular culture today. 

The 57-year-old continues to captivate new fans through unexpected collaborations with acts like Foo Fighters, Take That, and Blossoms. 

In fact, since reclaiming the number 1 spot in 2016 with ’50,’ Rick has enjoyed his most remarkable string of album chart successes throughout his entire career.

New Album

Good news for all you Rick Astley fans, his new album Are We There Yet? is coming out on 6 October 2023, following the release of his latest single Never Gonna Stop, which has been created by Rick almost entirely at his home studio in South-West London. 

That amazing Glasto set

Following his widely-praised performance at Glastonbury in June of this year, where Rick kicked off Saturday’s festivities with a spectacular show that seamlessly blended beloved ’80s classics with his signature stylish covers, the artist continued to shine. 

Later in the same day, he joined forces with Blossoms for an unforgettable set, featuring timeless hits from The Smiths.

Nostalgia 

Rick’s music has been a staple of pop culture for decades, and seeing him perform live in Liverpool is a unique opportunity to relive the nostalgia of the ’80s and ’90s when his hits ruled the airwaves.

One of the best songs of all time!

Never Gonna Give You Up is an iconic ’80s pop song known for its catchy melody and memorable chorus. 

Released in 1987, it became a global sensation and is often associated with the “Rickrolling” internet meme, where viewers are unexpectedly redirected to the song’s music video. 

Astley’s smooth vocals and the upbeat arrangement continue to make it a feel-good classic that generations have, and will continue to love for years to come!

His new music is amazing

You’ve gotta get Rick’s latest music playing! 

In the soulful R&B ballad Never Gonna Stop, Rick showcases his magnificent voice, with rich, live instruments that compliments the track perfectly. His vocals resonate with deep emotion as he delves into the idea that genuine human connections have the power to counterbalance the chaos prevailing in the world.

This compelling track follows the album’s leading single, Dippin My Feet, which received its debut courtesy of Zoe Ball on Radio 2. 

These two songs offer a sneak peek into the new twelve-track album, influenced in part by the vast, open landscapes that surrounded Rick during his extensive North American arena tour last summer alongside New Kids on The Block, Salt-N-Pepa, and En Vogue.

Never Gonna Stop and Dipping My Feet are available to stream now! 

The support acts

Heaven will be a place on earth in the M&S Bank Arena that night as Belinda Carlisle joins the event as a supporting artist. 

Do you remember the song Elvis Ain’t Dead? That’s right… early naughties pop-rock band Scouting For Girls will be there too! 

Boss Covers 

Rick’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’.
