Newton’s Rick Astley makes a triumphant return to the region tonight when he plays at Manchester’s O2 Ritz.

The Never Gonna Give You Up singer will perform hits from the 80s as well as tracks from his new number one album.

Astley enjoyed huge success in the 1980s, with a series of Stock, Atkin and Waterman penned tracks.

But his career stalled in the decade that followed before he eventually retired from the industry.

That changed when his name became part of an internet sensation, Rickrolling.

But his real talent has never been in doubt and it was confirmed when his latest album, 50, when to the top of the charts.

His Manchester show is part of the a nationwide tour to mark the release of the album.
