TWO years ago 80’s icon Rick Astley returned with a knock out album ‘50’ and headline spot at Southampton’s Let’s Rock Festival.

He then delighted fans on the South Coast last year with a sensational show at the Bournemouth International Festival.

Now he’s back with a new album and 18-date UK tour, ready to thrill fans again.

‘Beautiful Life’, is released July 20, with all tracks written, produced and played by Rick.

Supported by Gabrielle, he plays the BIC on Saturday November 10 – tickets go on sale Friday June 8.

Last year's two-hour BIC show gave Rick the scope to not only play the big hits but also a good number of excellent tracks from 50 alongside some unexpected covers in a varied repertoire of uptempo disco and slow love ballads.

In a career spanning over 30 years, Rick Astley has sold over 40 million records worldwide. ‘50’ has over 10 million UK streams, 20 million worldwide while his classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ has had over 140 million streams on Spotify alone! Singles from ‘50’ had over 12 million You Tube views while Rick has over 600,000 followers on socials.

‘Beautiful Life’ looks set to be one of the most exciting releases of the year.

There’s no denying, Rick Astley is back and here to stay!

The album can be pre-ordered from the official store to access 48 hr pre-sale on 6th June at
