This is not a drill people!
Rick Astley has just announced his return to Ireland with not one but two concert dates.
Yes, the Never Gonna Give You Up star will play in The SSE Arena in Belfast on March 4th and Dublin’s 3Arena on March 5th next year.
Supported by Scouting For Girls, tickets will go on sale at 9.30am next Friday 14th July via Ticketmaster.

The tour will support his long-awaited ninth studio album, titled Are We There Yet? which is set for release later this year on October 6th.
The album has been described as a reflection of his experiences since his previous album, Beautiful Life which was released back in 2018.
Are We There Yet also draws inspiration from various sources, including his shows with Blossoms celebrating the music of The Smiths and his North American arena tour with New Kids On The Block, Salt ‘N’ Pepa, and En Vogue.
The now 57-year-old is arguably more prominent in pop culture than he was in his youth and since returning to #1 in 2016 with ‘50’, it’s safer to say Rick has enjoyed the strongest run of album chart positions of his career.
So, will you be getting tickets?
