Rod Stewart is a British rock singer, from Highgate, London, best known as the frontman for The Jeff Beck Group and Faces, as well as his solo career, where he is known for tracks such as Maggie May, You Wear It Well, Sailing, I Don't Want to Talk About It, The First Cut Is the Deepest, and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?.
Starting his music career in 1961, as a member of the Jeff Beck Group, he later joined Faces, releasing his debut solo album, ‘An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down’, in 1969, which was followed by ‘Gasoline Alley’, in 1970, but it was his third release, ‘Every Picture Tells a Story’, that made him a household name, hitting #1 in the UK Albums Chart. The rocker recently celebrated 50 years as a recording artist, with the release of his 29th solo album, ‘Another Country’ in 2015.
He has headlined his own shows and tours across North America and Europe, hitting the UK in summer 2013 for the ‘Live the Life Tour, and the sold out Time Tour in September. In 2014 he returned once again for the Under The Summer Stars Tour performing outdoor shows in June. In 2016 he headed out across the UK and Ireland with his Gasoline Alley to 'Another Country All Hits summer stadium shows and winter arena tour.
Rod Stewart played a handful of European shows in early 2018, and now tours North America throughout the rest of the year, with two stints as resident set at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for summer and winter. He will release a new album, 'Blood Red Roses', on September 28 and will support it with a series of huge shows in the UK and Ireland in summer 2019.

Fantastic show been to all his shows the atmosphere magic every one was singing the whole night long can't wait for him to come back again and sisterhood band was great and there songs suited there voices we also went to his concert at Kilmarnock in june he is some entertainer and what a mover there is nothing negative to say about him and his backing group are brilliant.
A bit overindulgent but he has earned the right to be!
Glasgow Hydro on October 5 2013
From start to finish Rod and his band were fantastic! It was beautiful to see his kids up on stage and I have no doubt that Ruby will follow in her dad's footsteps towards. Rod was perhaps slightly self indulgent at times but who are we to flag him up on that - he has earned the right to be! I loved every minute for what was an amazing concert! Incidentally, the Hydro venue is superb. Perfect for concerts and a great addition to the city.
Even at the age of 68, Rod Stewart has still got itť. Some 44 years since releasing his first ever solo offering, Rod Stewart's cheeky glint fails to dim as he belted out hits from his latest album 'Time'.
Other classics also got played, including This Old Heart Of Mine, Tonight's The Night, Rhythm Of My Heart and a fantastic duet on Forever Young with his daughter Ruby Stewart. He effortlessly blended his chart classics like Da Ya Think I'm Sexy, Sailing and Maggie May with soulful acoustic songs.
The devoted Glasgow Celtic fan kicked a lot of signed footballs into the crowd while singing Hot Legs. Wish I had caught one, although I did see two women fight over one. Score!
