Rick Astley Plays Some Fun In the Sun At Glastonbury

Glastonbury has again dished up an ‘all things to all people’ line-up with Rick Astley joining the likes of Guns N Roses, Foo Fighters, Lizzo, The Chemical Brothers and Lana del Rey.

Rick was out for a good time with his classic dance hits ‘Together Forever’ and ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ bookending the setlist. Rick also popped and rocked with a cover of Harry Styles ‘As It Was’ and AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ in his show.

Rick Astley was given the very unrock and roll midday slot but the crowd came early to Rickroll. Rick opened the Saturday, Guns N’ Roses closed it.

James Taylor Farewells Australia With Final Tour (Melbourne Review)

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
