Ghastly Rick Astley

Rick Astley live in the Philippines

I don’t quite get why Rick Astley is suddenly everywhere; what started out as an April Fools’ Joke – the one where you get “Rickrolled,” although I can’t seem to find the link, then the infamous participation of YouTube. And now, his career is back. But, the joke’s on him.

Anyway, I still want people looking for information on his upcoming concert to land here so here goes. August 1, 2008, 8:00 p.m. Araneta Coliseum. Tickets are priced as follows: Php 5,250 for VIP, Php 4,200 for Patron, Php 3,150 for Lower Box, Php 2,100 for Upper Box A, Php 1,050 for Upper Box B, and Php 520 for General Admission.

Anyway, responsible for bringing him over, just in case you want to bomb their offices are MYX, Mossimo, someone else, and the Puerto Galera Holy Week Congregation. You may call TicketNet at 911-5555, or the gay suicide hotline at 969-6969.

  1. Interesting. I googled Rick Astley and found out that he’s the man behind “Never Gonna Give You Up” and “Together Forever.”

  2. The ‘rickroll’ started out as a prank in an imageboard, ‘4chan’ (lots of visitors…). Countless times, the ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ vid was hit( and uploaded), it became a well known prank in the internet. It was later made into an April Fool’s prank by some well known sites.

    The power of a collective mind.

  3. Throughout the whole ad campaign for this concert, my friends and I asked ourselves: “Who da hell would wanna watch Rick Astley?”. It turns out he still has a loyal following here. There was even an online petition to have Kuya Dick part of the show. Well, they got their wish…
