Rick Astley and The Lightning Seeds announced for Eden Sessions 2024

0 29


Rick Astley has been confirmed for Eden Sessions 2024 on 3rd July 2024 at the world-famous Eden Project Biomes.

Special guests for the evening will be Liverpool indie pop heroes The Lightning Seeds.

Astley’s story is a remarkable career of two chapters. In 1987, he became an unlikely global phenomenon as his era-defining smash ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ established him as an international chart-topping, BRIT Award-winning global star. This status was heightened by further hits such as ‘Together Forever’ and ‘Whenever You Need Somebody’.

After stepping away from the spotlight, Astley’s second chapter started when he celebrated his half-century by returning to the top of the charts with 2016’s ’50’. He has had six UK top-ten albums and eight top-ten singles. ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ – his debut single and first number one – has been viewed more than 1.5bn times on YouTube and is central to the “Rickrolling” meme.

The Lightning Seeds were formed by vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ian Broudie and are responsible for some of the most recognisable tunes of the nineties, including ‘Pure’, ‘The Life of Riley’ and ‘Lucky You’. In 1996, they teamed up with comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner to record the anthemic ‘Three Lions’ as the official song of the England football team’s Euro ’96 campaign. The song topped the UK charts on release and then again in 1998 (with an adapted version recorded for that year’s World Cup) and 2018.

Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions, said: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming two such well-loved artists as Rick Astley and The Lightning Seeds to the Eden Sessions.

“Rick’s appeal spans generations – from the millions who bought Never Gonna Give You Up when it was released to the huge Glastonbury crowds enraptured by his wonderful performances this summer – and The Lightning Seeds have gifted us some of the most recognisable anthems of recent decades. It will be a magical evening here at Eden and we really can’t wait.”
