A trio of eighties pop sensations are joining forces for the first of a series of concerts to be held at Inverness Leisure Centre.
Rick Astley will be joined by Katrina (of the Waves) and The Real Thing on Saturday 9 November, as part of Live in the City, a number of shows being held at the leisure venue. This is the first time Inverness Leisure Centre has hosted a music event.
The eighties nostalgic night will feature a range of hits which first hit the charts over 20 years ago. Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ hit, which was number one in 25 countries, is sure to get the crowd on their feet, while soul group, The Real Thing, will perform its internationally acclaimed track ‘You to Me Are Everything’.
Rick Astley said:
“Performing to a Scottish crowd is always special. I’m really excited to be coming to Inverness and will put on a great show for fans.”
James Martin, Chief Executive of Inverness Leisure Centre, said:
“To be branching into the music scene is an exciting opportunity for Inverness Leisure and one we hope to build on in the future. Working with LCC Live, another Inverness-based and like-minded company, will ensure we deliver a night to remember for local music fans.”
Live in the City (www.liveinthecity.org.uk) is a series of limited, capacity events being held at Inverness Leisure Centre, Bught Lane, Inverness.
Les Kidger, Director of LCC Live, said:
“Live in the City aims to bring a range of performers to Inverness over the course of the year. We’re delighted to have confirmed Rick Astley, Katrina and The Real Thing for the inaugural concert and look forward to working with Inverness Leisure Centre to deliver a memorable night of eighties hits.”
