On Saturday 12th September 2020, the 80s icon Rick Astley will be headlining a very special show held at Lingfield Park Resort Racecourse, Surrey. This unique show will invite audiences to enjoy an entire day of racing at one of the UK’s most prestigious arenas, with the added bonus of a full RICK ASTLEY set late into the evening. His era-defining classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ topped charts the world over and catapulted Rick on a journey that would encompass 8 consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales. However, after just six years in pop Rick disappeared without trace from the public eye. Nearly 25 years later, he released his new material destined to win hearts all over again. All written, produced and performed by Rick, his momentous ’50’ album in 2016 staked a place in UK Top 10 for 7 weeks raking in over 400,000 sales. The 2018’s emotionally-charged ‘Beautiful Life’ album cemented his remarkable comeback with the fifth Top 10 album of his career and a #6 chart position.
This year, in celebration of his extraordinary story, Rick has just released a new career-spanning compilation ‘The Best of Me’ which compiles recent fan favourites such as ‘Keep Singing’, ‘Angels On My Side’ and ‘Beautiful Life’, alongside his chart-busting hits like ‘Take Me To Your Heart’, ‘Together Forever’, ‘Cry For Help’ and of course, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.
In 2019 alone Rick has performed to over 500,000 people at 38 stadium shows with Take That, as well as making legendary appearances Isle of Wight Festival, Pub in the Park and Chris Evans’ Carfest. The singer now sets his sights on what promises to be a day to remember with his Live After Racing show in 2020.
