In 1987, Rick Astley released Never Gonna Give You Up, which spent five
weeks at the top of the British Charts making it that year's biggest-selling
single as well as topping the charts in over 16 countries. It recently
became the most-viewed pop video of all time on YouTube, with over 21 million
views to date due to the Unstoppable phenomenon of 'Rick-Rolling'.
This Ultimate Collection album will coincide with the Here And Now Tour which
Rick Astley is headlining and that kicks off in Manchester on 9 May, travels
through to London and finishes in Newcastle on 18 May.
The phenomenon of 'Rick-Rolling' has taken over the world. Most recently there
has been an incredible increase in the number of people being Rick-Rolled online.
This had happened after users clicked on a link to a film of a misbehaving celeb
only to be redirected to Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up video.
On April 1 2008, YouTube Rick-Rolled their site so that when people clicked
on the YouTube homepage they were redirected to the Rick-Roll homepage. Just
on this one day, Never Gonna Give You Up received well over 6 million
plays in one 24-hour period, worldwide.
