Rick Astley’s U.S. tour includes stop in Clearwater

Make all the jokes you want about Rickrolling and that he’ll never give you up or let you down: Rick Astley was a pop music god in the ‘80s. So when we heard he was planning a U.S. tour to promote his new album 50, all we could do is hope he wouldn't let Florida down with his travel plans. 

It turns out that Rick’s tour, which starts Jan. 21 in Las Vegas, will have two Florida stops: the obligatory Miami pitstop but also a Feb. 6 gig at Clearwater’s Capitol Theatre.

Astley had a ton of success in the ‘80s, eventually landing five singles in the Top 10, including Never Gonna Give You Up, Together Forever, It Would Take a Strong Strong Man and She Wants to Dance with Me
