Watch Rick Astley Rock Glastonbury Stage With Blossoms


Another artist who proved to be a major hit at this year’s Glastonbury Festival was Rick Astley.

The singer treated fans to a cover of Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was’, along with showing off his skills on the drum kit, with a live rendition of AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’.

Rick Astley who is renowned for his 1980s hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, told the crowd, “I’ve had many dreams in my life. One of my dreams has been to perform at Glastonbury – that dream has come true today”.

He also added, “Maybe even possibly bigger… is for me to play drums to the first record that I learned to play the drums to”.
