Chart-topping singer Rick Astley’s headline show at Newmarket Racecourses has been rescheduled for 2021.

He sang ‘Never gonna give you up, Never gonna let you down, Never gonna run around and desert you’.

And true to his word, Rick Astley has not abandoned his fans after the cancellation of his Newmarket Nights concert this summer.

The Jockey Club Live was due to present Rick Astley at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday, July 31 but the coronavirus pandemic means that show is now off.

However, organisers have already rescheduled the gig for 2021 with the chart-topping Together Forever singer due to ride into Newmarket on Friday, June 25.

A statement from promoters read: “Unfortunately Rick Astley’s headline show on July 31 at Newmarket Racecourses can no longer be staged due to the ongoing public health situation.

“However, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve secured a date for Rick Astley to perform in 2021.

“He will be headlining Newmarket Nights on June 25, 2021.”

Tickets will be automatically transferred to the 2021 show at the 2020 price.

The Rick Astley concert postponement follows hot on the heels of Sir Tom Jones also having to rearrange his summer show at the racecourse.

The It’s Not Unusual and Delilah singer will now headline Newmarket Nights on Friday, July 23, 2021.
