Foo Fighters Joined By Rick Astley


Dave Grohl Rick Astley Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl invited Rick Astley up on stage to perform with the Foo Fighters - and described him as a ''bada** motherf****r''.

The 'Monkey Wrench' rock icon called up the 'Never Gonna Give You Up' singer - who previously jointed the band back in August during their Summersonic festival appearance in Japan - to recreate and perform a heavy version of his hugely popular hit single , which was released 30 years ago.

Introducing his new friend onto the stage at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday night (19.09.17), Grohl said: ''Every now and then you meet a bada** motherf****r. Will you please welcome one of the most bada** motherf*****s: Rick Astley!''

Everyone has had that experience when they click on a video expecting one thing and end up getting trolled with Rick Astley's 1987 number one hit 'Never Gonna Give You Up', but somehow it's much less annoying when it happens in the middle of a Foo Fighters concert.

Kylie Minogue And Jason Donovan Back Together At Last!


Kylie Minogue Jason Donovan Rick Astley

Yes! Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are back together! Well, they were last night at least when the two 80's pop icons reunited on stage for the first time in 23 years at a concert in London.

The Australian pop stars took to the stage at last night's The Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker (Dec 21) at the O2 Arena in London to perform their 1988 smash hit 'Especially For You,' with the crowd erupting into great applause straight after. The show was put on to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Stock, Aitken, Waterman; the pop music powerhouses behind such acts as Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Dead or Alive as well as the Australian twosome.

Having shot to fame in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, Minogue and Donovan followed up this recognition with two of the most recognised pop careers in the 80's and 90's, and for Kylie, the 2000's too. The Aussie twosome were joined by Rick Astley, Bananarama, Steps, 2 Unlimited, Sonia, Princess and Pepsi & Shirlie on the night, with all the acts taking to the stage to close the show with a rendition of Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody.'
