The Jockey Club Live have announced that Rick Astley and Jack Savoretti will be headlining Newmarket Nights on July 31 and August 7. Rick Astley’s era-defining classic Never Gonna Give You Up topped charts the world over and catapulted the 80’s icon on a journey that would encompass eight consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales.
After stepping aside to focus on his family, he shot back to fame almost 30 years later with his Platinum-selling album 50.
Last month, he released his career-spanning compilation The Best of Me, which also included an independently recorded set of reimagined interpretations of his songs, old and new.
This year saw Rick complete a gargantuan 38-date stadium tour as special guest to Take That, during which he played to more than 500,000 people. Showing his mass appreciation across genres, he also graced the main stage of the legendary Reading Festival this summer, performing Never Gonna Give You Up with one of the worlds biggest rock bands, Foo Fighters.
Jack Savoretti will be making his Newmarket Nights debut and 2019 has been a whirlwind for the English-Italian singer-songwriter; months of rapturously received shows across the world; a triumphant, sold-out Wembley Arena homecoming; collaborations with artists as diverse as Kylie, Mika and Sigma; and an album that, since its March release, has sold in old-fashioned numbers Singing to Strangers has shifted more than 120,000 copies, making it emphatically one of the break-out albums of the year.
Tickets will be on sale at 8am on December 6 via: thejockeyclublive.co.uk. Tickets are priced starting at £30.24 for Rick Astley, and £29.12 for Jack Savoretti available at: newmarket.thejockeyclub.co.uk.
