Bastille fans go wild at Hampton Court Palace Festival as the band performs surprise duet with Rick Astley

BRIT-nominated Indie idols Bastille wowed crowds at Hampton Court Palace Festival last night as they were joined on stage by 80s legend Rick Astley.

Following their critically acclaimed 2018 ReOrchestrated tour, Bastille have reprised a selection of songs from their three albums (Bad Blood, Wild World, Doom Days); re-imagining, deconstructing and rearranging their iconic songs with a 20-piece orchestra and choir.

And their set proved a hit with festival-goers last night when they performed a surprise duet of Never Gonna Give You Up with Rick.

Live music returned to Hampton Court Palace last week, with music legends Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Tom Jones, Keane, Van Morrison and Björn Again all featuring on the line-up. 

Bastille returns for its second performance tonight, followed by Keane gracing the stage tomorrow (Thursday).

Then on Saturday, Tom Jones is back on Hampton Court stage, after a crowd rousing performance in 2018.

Fans of the Welshman can also see him on Monday and Tuesday (August 23 and 24).

Then on Sunday, August 22, Nile Rodgers & CHIC will have the whole Palace on their feet to hits such as Le Freak, Good Times, We Are Family and Let’s Dance on Sunday 22nd August.

Music lovers can also look forward to Lionel Richie, Rick Astley and George Benson coming to Hampton Court Palace Festival in 2022, when the festival returns to its usual month of June. 

Hampton Court Palace Festival is in its 25th year of delivering unique open-air concerts.
