Sir Rod’s 2020 summer tour announcement follows on the heels of his triumphant and record-breaking 50th year as a solo artist (2019). A year which closed with the release of his international chart-topping album, ‘You’re In My Heart: Rod Stewart With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.’ The album scored Stewart his 10th No. 1 album in the UK (where it remained for the last three weeks of 2019). The album was also a No. 1 chart-topper in Ireland, Scotland and on the US Billboard Classical Albums Chart & Billboard Classical Crossover Albums charts. 2019 was also a massive touring year for Stewart, who embark on his biggest UK tour ever—selling-out football stadiums across England and Scotland, a string of residency concerts at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, a landmark reunion set with his former bandmate Jeff Beck at The Hollywood Bowl, and closing out the year with a sold-out three-night residency at London’s O2 Arena in December.   

 

Sir Rod Stewart has sold more than 250 million records worldwide during a stellar career that includes ten #1 albums and 26 Top 10 singles in the U.K.; plus 17 Top 10 albums and 16 Top 10 singles in the U.S. As a singer and songwriter his hits include “Gasoline Alley,” “Every Picture Tells a Story,” “Mandolin Wind,” “You Wear It Well,” “The Killing of Georgie,” “Tonight’s the Night,” “You're In My Heart (The Final Acclaim),” “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?,” “Young Turks,” “Forever Young,” “Hot Legs,” “Infatuation” and the indelible, “Maggie May.” In addition to touring, his Las Vegas residency, "Rod Stewart: The Hits," at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has remained one of the hottest tickets and best reviewed shows since its launch in 2011. He’s earned countless of the industry’s highest awards, among them; two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting, New York Times bestselling author, Grammy™ Living Legend, and in 2016 he officially became “Sir Rod Stewart” after being knighted at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity.
