POP legend Rick Astley, known for 80’s tour de force ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, will be bringing his “Are We There Yet” Tour to Liverpool next March! With over 40 million record sales worldwide to his name, the Merseyside-born singer has been a household name for more than 30 years.

It’s been 36 years since he first shot to fame, yet Rick Astley is now arguably a more prominent force in popular culture than he ever was. The endearingly boyish 57-year-old is still winning over new fans, whether he’s performing with Foo Fighters, Take That or Blossoms; becoming an unlikely social media sensation; or simply embracing the unending love that greets his era-defining smash ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ which was boosted by its use in an intensely affecting scene in ‘Ted Lasso’. Indeed, since returning to #1 in 2016 with ‘50’, Rick has enjoyed the strongest run of album chart positions of his entire career.

Rick’s Glastonbury sets which made him the talk of the nation: first opening Saturday’s festivities in style with a triumphant performance which mixed crowd-pleasing ‘80s classics alongside some typically classy covers, and then later that day, his latest show with Blossoms as they teamed up for a euphoric, life-affirming set of classic songs by The Smiths.

A towering R&B ballad rich with warm live instrumentation, ‘Never Gonna Stop’ proves that Rick’s sumptuous voice continues to grow in stature. His vocals simmer with feeling as his lyrics explore the belief that a personal human connection is the one thing that can counteract the madness that permeates the world. 

Never Gonna Stop’ follows the album’s lead single ‘Dippin My Feet’, which received its first play courtesy of Zoe Ball at Radio 2. The two songs preview a twelve-track record, which was inspired, in part, by the vast open roads that Rick was surrounded by throughout last summer’s huge North American arena tour with New Kids on The Block, Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue.
