80s pop Idol Rick Astley is back with a bang! Having retired in 1993, his comeback continues with a new album Beautiful Life, and this tour promotes his latest work. Tonight at the Glasgow Armadillo he treated the crowd to a fantastic evening and took them back to the days of his classic hits. And didn’t they love him for it!!
Covering all his major hits from his first stint in the UK charts, and also some not so major, Astley opened with Try where he was upfront on his own armed only with an acoustic guitar, followed by This Old House and the 1st leg shaker Together Forever. It may well be 30 years since his chart breakthrough, but Rick Astley still has the black suit, the quiff, and his voice is sublime.
