Rick Astley at Scarborough Open Air Theatre

Fresh from his unforgettable Glastonbury debut and the success of incredible new album Are We There Yet?Rick Astley today confirms a new headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre

Arguably Britain’s most beloved pop star, Rick will headline the historic Yorkshire coast venue on Friday July 5. He will be joined by special guests Lightning Seeds.

It has been 36 years since Rick first shot to fame, yet he is now a more prominent force in popular culture than he ever was.

The endearingly boyish 57-year-old is still winning over new fans, performing with Foo Fighters, Take That, Blossoms, becoming an unlikely social media sensation and simply embracing the unending love that greets his era-defining smash Never Gonna Give You Up.

Indeed, since returning to #1 in 2016 with his album 50, Rick – who this year took his first ever bow on Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage and headlined two nights at the Royal Albert Hall – has enjoyed the strongest run of album chart success of his career to date.

His long-awaited ninth studio album Are We There Yet? was released to much acclaim in October, debuting at #2 on the UK Album charts. The chart topper has now sold 40 million records worldwide.
