Rick Astley to play Tunbridge Wells
October 24, 2016 by Lyndon
Pop star Rick Astley will feature in a gig near Tunbridge Wells during 2017.
The Rick Astley concert in the Tunbridge Wells area will happen in a woodland location. As part of Forest Live, the pop star will attempt to build on his recent success. His topping of the album chart with ‘50’ may have given him confidence. Flyers from Tunbridge Wells could be used to promote the event next year. Astley stated:
“2017 sees me celebrating 30 years in the music business since my first No 1 hit. I can’t wait to perform as a part of Forest Live and I really hope you can make one of the dates to enjoy the experience with me.”
Astley’s concert will be taking place at Bedgebury Pinetum. The gig, which will be highly accessible from Tunbridge Wells, is going to be held in June.
The singer and songwriter will use material from his back catalogue as well as entertaining with new songs. It is likely that he will sing ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, which is his most famous hit. Fans of the iconic figure will have the opportunity to purchase tickets online.
The Forestry Commission came up with Forest Live. The idea is that fresh audiences can be made aware of woodland. The proceeds of ticket sales will go to initiatives that will aim to expand and improve forests in England.
