The singer will perform at the Party in the Paddock event held at Newbury Racecourse.

Party in the Paddock will be held on September 18 as part of the the Dubai Duty Free International Weekend.

Harriet Collins, Director of Marcomms for Newbury Racecourse said: “We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming Rick Astley to the Party in the Paddock stage in September.  

"It will be the first time he has played here at the racecourse and what better way to enjoy the last of the summer than with an afternoon of top-quality racing followed by a live performance from the 80s legend.” 

His hit song ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ topped charts the world over and catapulted the 80’s icon on a journey that would earn him eight consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales.

After stepping aside to focus on his family, Astley went back to #1 in the charts almost 30 years later, with his platinum-selling album ‘50’.

Last month, he released his career-spanning compilation ‘The Best of Me’, which also included an independently recorded set of reimagined interpretations of his songs, old and new. 

2019 saw Rick complete a 38-date stadium tour as special guest to Take That, during which he played to over 500,000 people. He has also graced the main stage of Reading Festival, performing ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ with the Foo Fighters.
