Pop Icon and multi-million selling artist Rick Astley has today announced a brand new seventeen date tour for March and April 2017 including a date at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

This follows what has already been a whirlwind year for Rick Astley; from an original run of shows in April that all sold out immediately to a BBC Radio 2 A list single, Keep Singing which raked in nearly 1.8 million views on VEVO and has been streamed over 600,000 times on Spotify.

All of this has been building anticipation for the release of the Grammy-nominated star’s new album 50, out now on BMG. This is Rick’s first studio album in over a decade and marks a return to his musical roots; marrying Astley’s distinctive, soulful vocals with Gospel influences in an entirely self-penned album that draws on his experiences and inspirations, and showcases his unmatched musicianship with the star playing every instrument heard on the album. 50 also features second single Angels on My Side.

Rick Astley said, “The response to the new material has been genuinely overwhelming. I’ve been overjoyed by the way the public have taken the songs of 50 to their hearts. I could not be more excited to share it with my fans everywhere”

With over 40 million records sold, and a vast collection of chart-topping hits on both sides of the Atlantic to his name, Astley remains one of the most successful solo artists to have ever emerged from Britain. His three decades in the spotlight have seen the music legend enter the record books for his early ground-breaking chart success; garner rapturous critical acclaim; and sell-out arenas on almost every continent, as he continues to leave an indelible mark on pop-culture.

Rick Astley’s new album is now available.
