Rick Astley was recently here in Manila and had a successful concert. I embedded the video of his concert last August 1 at the Araneta Coliseum. He performed the last song (Never gonna give you up) playing a guitar and ended up performing with a die hard Rick Astley fan and a  Filipino celebrity, Roderick Paulate. It’s a dream come true for Roderick Paulate for sure!
