Rick Astley's never gonna give up the music: Gigs in Spain and new album for 2018
07 June 2018 @ 19:54

AN ICON of 1980s' pop has made a comeback and is due in Spain later this year for two concerts in Madrid and Barcelona.

Rick Astley soared from anonymity to world fame overnight when his first-ever record, Never Gonna Give You Up, went straight to number one in his native UK in late 1987.

Aged just 21 at the time, the new rising star from Newton-le-Willows followed up this unexpected success with the single Together Forever, which also went to number one, and his first album, Whenever You Need Somebody.

Subsequent studio albums and singles failed to live up to his spectacular début, but with 40 million album sales worldwide, Astley has had little to complain about.

And those who have been following the British music scene may have noticed that Rick has never stopped producing music – at least, not until 2006.
