Far from being Rick Rolled, there have been rumblings about the former Stock Aitken Waterman star touring Australia for a few months now, but here it is... locked in, settled, confirmed. Rick Astley will tour Australia in November this year.
It's the first time in an extraordinary 23 years that the singer will play live down under, so he's making up for it by raiding the back catalogue and performing all the hits that made him famous, including the inimitable 'Never Gonna Give You Up', PWL favourites 'Together Forever' and 'She Wants To Dance With Me', the ballad 'When I Fall In Love' and the '90s classic 'Cry For Help'.
