Playing both arenas and winery dates, the rock singer — famous for hits like Do Ya Think I’m Sexy, Forever Young and Maggie May — is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold over 120 million records worldwide.
His return to Australia follows a triumphant UK stadium tour over the summer and a tour of the US — where he headlined a series of shows at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace and played three sold-out shows at LA’s Hollywood Bowl.
The singer-songwriter is set to be honoured by Warner Music on November 22 with the release of a new album — You’re in My Heart: Rod Stewart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra — allowing fans to hear Stewart’s biggest hits with his classic vocal style set to full orchestral arrangements.
In 2019, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer celebrates 50 years as a solo performer.
With more than 250 million records sold worldwide, Stewart has had a stellar career, including four number one singles and seven number one albums in Australia.
Stewart will kick off the tour in Perth, on Saturday, October 17, 2020 and wrap up at Sirromet Wines in Mount Cotton on Saturday, November 7, following stops in Sydney, Melbourne, Geelong, Bowral and the Hunter Valley.
Stewart has also been announced as the headline act for A Day on the reen, a three-date concert run in wineries in Bowral, Geelong and Mount Cotton.
“We’re thrilled to return to Bowral with one of the biggest superstars in the world,” said Roundhouse Entertainment promoter Michael Newton.
“Some of the most memorable shows in A Day on the Green history were at Centennial Vineyards with music icons Leonard Cohen, Alicia Keys and Lionel Richie, so it’s appropriate we return with an artist of Rod’s renowned stature.”
