Pop superstar Rick Astley is returning to Las Vegas for a special performance at the Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 8 p.m.
With his rich, deep voice, Rick Astley became an overnight sensation in the late 1980s, with his well-crafted dance-pop. Astley was discovered by the producer Pete Waterman in 1985, while singing in the English soul band FBI. After that, Waterman’s production team — Stock, Aitken & Waterman — took Astley under their wing, writing and producing such impeccably crafted pop singles as “Never Gonna Give You Up,” which peaked at number one in 25 countries, and “Together Forever.”
After two hugely successful albums in the U.S. and the U.K., Astley grew tired of being labeled Stock, Aitken & Waterman’s “puppet” and severed his connections with the team; he resurfaced in 1991 with the soul-injected Free, which contained the Top-10 hit, “Cry for Help.” After a hiatus throughout the rest of the 1990s, Astley returned with 2001’s Keep It Turned On, 2005’s Portrait and his latest album, 50, which was released in June 2016 and reached number one on the UK Albums Chart.
