Due to the huge demand for the previously announced shows, Rod will now play an extra two outdoor shows plus two arena dates in support of the release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses which debuted at number 1. And the tour includes a stop at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena on Tuesday July 9.

Rod Stewart Live in Concert will visit football stadiums, outdoor venues and arenas across England and Scotland from May through to July.

His Newcastle show marks the first time Rod has played in the city since 2013.

The fully seated tour is being promoted by Cuffe and Taylor whose director Peter Taylor said: “We are delighted to be adding the Newcastle date to 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.

“Our last visit to the North East with Rod was in summer 2017 when he played to a capacity crowd at Durham’s Emirates Riverside Stadium so we are looking forward to a great night in Newcastle.

“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 as well as new album Blood Red Roses - a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers.

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.

Celtic-folk and Americana band Johnny Mac and the Faithful will be the special guest act before Rod Stewart performs at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena.

The Glasgow-based band were asked to perform at Rod’s outdoor stadium shows for the Rod Stewart Live in Concert tour after attracting the attention of Rod.

Johnny Mac and the Faithful previously opened for Rod at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro in 2017 at a concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of Celtic Football Club’s 1967 European Cup victory. A friendship was born from that and Rod invited frontman John McLaughlin to co-write the song Julia which appears on his latest number one album Blood Red Roses.

And after impressing the international rock legend while performing across nine outdoor stadium shows, Rod has now asked the band to join him for the Newcastle show on Tuesday July 9.
