Rick Astley has been confirmed for next year’s Eden Sessions, playing a show in front of the world-famous Eden Project Biomes on July 3, 2024.

Special guests for the evening will be Liverpool’s The Lightning Seeds.

The Eden Project’s Rita Broe 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.”
