Rick Astley brings his new tour - The Beautiful Life - to the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

Two years ago, Astley returned with an album that surprised everyone, even himself. The album, called 50, sold more than 300,000 copies and was one of the biggest selling albums of 2016. What was even more incredible was that Rick wrote, produced and played every instrument on the come- back disc.

It was his seventh studio album and his first number-one album since his 1987 debut album Whenever You Need Somebody.

This latest album, Beautiful Life, was released in July and each of the 12 tracks were written, produced and played by Astley.

Highlights are many and include the title track, the evocative Rise Up, the insanely catchy Try and the warm childhood memories of The Good Old Days.
