Two years ago Rick Astley returned with an album that surprised everyone, even himself. His number 1 album ‘50’ sold over 300,000 copies and was one of the biggest selling albums of 2016. What was even more incredible was that Rick wrote, produced and played every instrument on his comeback release.
In a career spanning over 30 years, Rick Astley has sold over 40 million records worldwide. He shot to fame in the 1980s with his platinum selling albums Whenever You Need Somebody and Hold Me In Your Arms.
Rick has now followed 50 with Beautiful Life’, which will be released on July 20th. Each of the twelve tracks are written, produced and played by Rick. Highlights are many and include the Chic flavored title track, the evocative ‘Rise Up’, the insanely catchy ‘Try’ and the warm childhood memories of ‘The Good Old Days’.
After selling over 100,000 tickets on his 2017 tour, Rick and his band will also be back on the road in the autumn and will be joined by very special guest Gabrielle.
- Rick will play Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on November 2. Tickets go on sale Friday June 8th.
