Eighties pop star Rick Astley performed live at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. on August 11, and we were there to bask in the glory of his blue-eyed soulfulness. Yes, before there was George Michael wanting our sex, there was Rick Astley telling us he was never gonna give us up.
It’s been about 29 years since Astley performed in the United States, and 23 years since he released any original material and it was certainly worth the wait. His new album featuring the original material has already been released in the UK and hit number one on the charts, and is set to be released in North America on October 7 via BMG.
