Much-loved 80s icon Rick Astley is the first artist to be announced for next year’s Mouth of the Tyne Festival.

With over three million monthly listeners on Spotify, Rick is once again capturing the hearts of the nation, and will perform at the picturesque Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Saturday 13 July, 2019.  

He has sold over 40 million records in his 30-year career and one of his biggest hits, Never Gonna Give You Up, was number one in 25 countries.

Rick’s current release Beautiful Life is his fifth top ten album and expresses his obsession with music, his love for his wife and family, and his love of life itself.

The festival, now in its 15th year, takes place in Tynemouth and features spectacular outdoor concerts at Tynemouth Priory and Castle, free world-class street entertainment, a jazz stage, children’s pageant, activities in Tynemouth Station and much more.
