Rick Astley at Glastonbury Festival

About the artist

Rick Astley’s story is a remarkable career of two chapters. In 1987, he became an unlikely global phenomenon as his era-defining smash Never Gonna Give You Up established him as an international chart-topping, BRIT Award-winning global star. This status was heightened by further hits such as Together Forever and Whenever You Need Somebody.

After stepping away from the spotlight, Rick’s second chapter started when he celebrated his half-century by returning to the top of the charts with 2016’s 50.

The somehow still boyish singer, songwriter and producer has stayed at the top of his game ever since, leading to collaborations with everyone from Foo Fighters to Blossoms, this summer’s show-stealing double-bill of festival sets at Glastonbury, and a number two chart position for his new album Are We There Yet?.

Rick has had six UK top-ten albums and eight top-ten singles. Never Gonna Give You Up – his debut single and first number one – has been viewed more than 1.5bn times on YouTube and is central to the “Rickrolling” meme.

Rick was named Best Act Ever at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, beating legendary artists including Britney Spears, U2 and Green Day.

The Lightning Seeds

Special guests: The Lightning Seeds

The Lightning Seeds were formed by vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ian Broudie and are responsible for some of the most recognisable tunes of the nineties, including Pure, The Life of Riley and Lucky You.

In 1996, they teamed up with comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner to record the anthemic Three Lions as the official song of the England football team’s Euro ’96 campaign. The song topped the UK charts on release and then again in 1998 (with an adapted version recorded for that year’s World Cup) and 2018.
