Never gonna give you up...

Rick Astley brought this year's Newmarket Nights concerts to a close at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday.

The chart-topping 80s star played a live gig at the famous racecourse after an evening of horse racing.

The singer-songwriter, who enjoyed top 10 hits with number one smash Never Gonna Give You Up, Together Forever and She Wants to Dance With Me, even got behind the drums during the show.

Rick Astley tweeted the following day: "What a gig last night in Newmarket Racecourse! We’re loving being able to play for you again."
