Rick Astley has been performing INXS ‘New Sensation’ as part of his Australian tour with A-ha.

Astley played his first show for A Day On The Green at Rochford Winery on the weekend and then performed in Melbourne on Sunday night. The INXS classic was performed at both shows.

Rick even had his backing singers dress in INXS t-shirts alongside him to further brand the concept.
