It’s an exciting time in the “CityNews” newsroom with word reaching us that the one, the only, the man with 81 million YouTube views to his hit single (making him 26 times more popular than a slinky being pushed down the King O’Malleys escalator), the man who spawned the internet phenomena of RickRolling is going to play the Canberra Theatre on 26 November.

His promoter described his output thusly:

With hits including Never Gonna Give You Up, Whenever You Need Somebody, When I Fall In Love, Together Forever, She Wants To Dance With Me and Cry For Help Rick has sold over 40 million records. Initially teaming up with the aforementioned production wonder team of Stock, Aitken and Waterman, Rick’s first 8 singles made the UK top 10 and his smash hit Never Gonna Give You Up was number 1 in 25 countries across the globe. Thanks to the “Rickrolling” phenomenon which saw Never Gonna Give You Up viewed by hundreds of millions of people, Rick is one of the most recognisable, and indeed loved singers on the planet.

Once more with feeling…
