In support of the release of his 30th studio album ‘Blood Red Roses‘ released on September 28th, 2018, Rod Stewart will hit the road in 2019 with a UK tour.
Rod Stewart Live In Concert will kick off in Southampton on May 31 and will then visit football stadiums and outdoor venues across England and Scotland.
This will be Rod’s first UK tour in three years following the success of two sold-out tours in 2016 – The UK Hits Stadium Tour and the arena tour “From Gasoline Alley to Another Country Hits.”
Rod Stewart Live In Concert will see Rod play the following dates:
Fri 31 May Southampton, St Mary’s Stadium
Sat 1 June York, York Racecourse
Tues 4 June Milton Keynes, Stadium MK
Fri 7 June Ipswich, Portman Road Stadium
Sat 8 June Wolverhampton, Molineux Stadium
Wed 12 June Aberdeen, AECC

The fully seated tour is being promoted by Cuffe and Taylor whose director Peter Taylor said: “We are delighted to be announcing Rod Stewart Live In Concert. We have presented numerous shows with him over the past five years and this will be our second full tour with him.
As his fans know, Rod presents the most amazing shows. He continues to play to huge audiences across the globe and it is an absolute pleasure to once again be taking him across the UK once to reach tens of thousands of people who will have the most incredible night watching him perform live.”
With his signature voice, style and songwriting, Rod Stewart has transcended all genres of popular music, from rock, folk, soul, R&B, and even the American standards; making him one of the few stars to enjoy chart-topping albums throughout every decade of his career.
Rod’s 2019 shows promise to be filled with both classics and new hits in his dazzling signature style. As one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with more than 200 million records sold worldwide, his performance will include show stopping classics from his glittering career.
Concert-goers will also be treated to tracks from his soon to be released new album ‘Blood Red Roses’ – a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers – which is released almost 50 years to the date from when he signed his very first solo recording contract.
Rod has 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 by Prince William at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity.
