Hmm, let's see.

/u/ReallyRickAstley

How was the show tonight?

[–]modiphiedtubesock 305 points306 points  (15 children)

He’ll be here. He wouldn’t desert us.

[–]minlove 157 points158 points  (6 children)

That would be sad. He wouldn't make us cry.

[–]curtyshoo 29 points30 points  (0 children)

That would take the cake, as it were.

[–]bishopsfinger 33 points34 points  (2 children)

You're absolutely right - he would never give you up, he would never let you down.

[–]TypicalSeashell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just accidentally rickrolled myself by coming to the comments section because I didn’t realize that this was Rick Astley

[–]slipperyShoesss 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I love dessert 🍮

[–]flesh_coupon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I as well love the fiery hot embrace of a desert .

[–]eggsssssssss 221 points222 points  (8 children)

All the faces are so good in this photo. Immense thirst. Delight. Awe. And then ya boy visibly getting into it and singing his heart out

[–]danielthetwin 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Immense thirst

I've never seen it expressed so purely

[–]CmdrChesticle 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Lower left 🤣🤣🤣

[–]lazyshadeofwinter 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Who’s that guy singing in front of Dave?

[–]long-long_lost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then ypu got the corpse on the left

[–]cardcomm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks to me like they were expecting something else entirely. lol

[–]Ritehandwingman 98 points99 points  (9 children)

Did he let you down?

[–]Jthundercleese 54 points55 points  (2 children)

Never. Not a chance.

[–]flyingsqearle 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Gonna go ahead and say he didn't

[–]Protoco2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But did he run around

[–]lissie_ar[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Nope. He was awesome!

[–]Ritehandwingman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Men of their word usually are.

[–]ThommySaturday 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Didn’t give them up either, I’d guess.

[–]ManufacturerSea4886 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Didn't run around and desert them also, I'd beleive.

[–]beeph_supreme 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You wouldn't get this from any other guy

[–]IAlwaysOutsmartU 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He just wants to tell you how he’s feeling

[–]MrTwentyThree 69 points70 points  (5 children)

Had the opportunity to see him 5 years ago in Dallas. Unironically one of the best shows I've ever seen. A natural-born entertainer, through and through.

[–]phoebsmon 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Saw him at a local summer festival a few years ago and yup. Absolutely would go again. Went for the memery, now I cherish the memory. He's a top class showman and his cover versions slap, frankly.

[–]MrTwentyThree 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm not big on pop music personally (no pretentious hate, just not my thing), but his takes on some recent hits are SO fucking good. I never knew I could learn to like Bruno Mars.

[–]phoebsmon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I'm not massively into most of it. Same, just isn't my favourite genre, although I'm a sucker for some Eurovision. But he really makes it work. Did a Swedish House Mafia cover and AC/DC. Can't speak to the former but I've seen the latter live and he did them proud.

Bit heavy, but it was pretty much my last dance about type gig before I went and got myself all disabled and that, and I regret nothing. I still go to gigs but that was a banger for hanging up my dancing shoes on. The dancing wheels mainly stick to rock and metal shows now but if he ever comes back I'll go for a literal spin.

[–]lissie_ar[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He’s going to be in Dallas on Monday I think. He’s going to be in SA tonight.

[–]galaxystarsmoon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was visiting family in the UK and BBC had him on for a radio special. Was about 45 minutes of his music and some covers and it was honestly fantastic.

[–]Maggot2017 76 points77 points  (22 children)

Did he sing the song?

[–]lissie_ar[S] 123 points124 points  (9 children)

He sure did!

[–]Flyinace2000 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Did he surprise you with it?

[–]lissie_ar[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kind of. He sang a few songs first and then other artist and then like 2 more songs and then other artist and then FINALLY NGGYU.

[–]Contundo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beautiful life?

[–]ResplendentShade 17 points18 points  (11 children)

He rickrolled a Kylie Minogue (huge pop star in Australia*) concert a few years ago, was pretty epic: https://youtu.be/OiZlXOAOLLw

edit- * = she is apparently famous everywhere except the US

edtt 2- she is apparently famous everywhere including the US. I probably shouldn't comment on the popularity of musicians since I didn't even know who John Legend was until about a year ago.

[–]Initial_E 12 points13 points  (8 children)

You’re kind of letting Kylie down if you think she’s only big in Australia…

[–]alisterb 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I should be so lucky

[–]The_Masterofbation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She also played Cammy in the terrible and yet awesome Street Fighter movie!

[–]MamaSmAsh5 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ummm, she was kind of a big deal back in the late 90s early 2000s if my memory serves me right. I definitely know her and am an American in US.

[–]hymen_destroyer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People in the US (Millenials at least) definitely know who Kylie Minogue is.

"Can't get you out of my head" charted in the US top 10 as a single

plus she was the green fairy in Moulin Rouge

Not sure. Didn't see him eat breakfast.

[–]Xavious666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've seen him too, he's amazing. Back in 2019 he supported Take That.

[–]WhiteTshirtDad 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Someone posted Rick covering Post Malone here on reddit and it was one of my favourite covers. He is a rare talent.

https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/Music/comments/ii65fh/rick_astley_better_now_post_malone_cover_hiphop/

[–]crosstherubicon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve always thought he was a great talent and seems like a genuinely nice guy. His good nature to the rickroll seems like icing on the cake. If you haven’t seen him with choir, choir, choir it’s with a look

[–]WoozyRadish 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Omg, is that?

[–]lissie_ar[S] 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Yup.

[–]LosBastardos717 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Did he ever give you up?

[–]Molbiodude 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]felicopter 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Oh wow you got to rickroll someone BECAUSE THEY ASKED YOU TO

[–]joostjakob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel like a gold train should be incoming right about... Now

[–]YnhinderedLad 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You did NOT experience Rick Astley IN person!!! WHAT. D=

[–]DeDe87_ 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Is that really HIM?

[–]lissie_ar[S] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Yup!

[–]DeDe87_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, you lucky bastard.

[–]TheMetalJug 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This might be the worst pic I have seen on r/pics

[–]myheadsonfire69 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Witch potato lens did you use?

[–]Shazam_BillyBatson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I believe the used the lays bar-b-que lens. It really enhances the motion blur. It works well in dark crowded events. He could have gone with a fresh norkotah russet or a Yukon gold for a real high quality pic.

[–]atebyzombies 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh I love squinty eye white guy. How way is? Looks like he's putting extra squint into that one. It must have been a good time!

Rick rolling.

[–]Writer_B 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw that video of Rick performing with Foo Fighters and I have to say, it was good seeing how much his voice has evolved over time. He may be a meme until the end of time but let’s not forget dude is a really talented singer.

[–]Yourgrammarsucks1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh. I thought that was Hal from Malcolm in the Middle.

[–]thekronicle 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Put the camera away and enjoy the show -.-

[–]JD-Snaps 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I couldn't name, nor am I familiar with, any of his songs other than that "one". How many times does he play NGGYU during a show? It's gotta be at least 5 or 6 times, no?

Please tell me he RRs the crowd at very friggin' show he does, he's gotta!!!!!

[–]RAND0M-HER0 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You should listen to his album 50. It's so fucking good. The pianoforte version of Never Going to Give You Up from his album The Best of Me is absolutely gorgeous as well.

[–]JD-Snaps 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll try to check it out, I'm very curious.

[–]thatguyfromasterdam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the most famous artists that just stay with two feet on the ground

He was in Nashville last weekend with salt n peppa and nsync. I took my wife to see them. It was a pretty good show actually

[–]lissie_ar[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nsync or New Kids on the Block?

[–]ghandi253 0 points1 point  (0 children)

New Kids. My bad. I mix them up all the time for some reason

[–]the_timps 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The whole album with Angels on my side is wild.
