Rod Stewart Announces 2005 UK Tour
Rod Stewart has today announced that the Newcastle date of his tour, due to take place at the Metro Radio Arena on Tuesday 17th May 2005 has now been re-scheduled, and will take place later this week on Saturday 21st May 2005.
Rod has been advised by throat specialists that he must rest his voice this week following a throat infection.
All tickets issued for this sellout concert will still be valid for this re-scheduled date.
Rod and his 12-piece band, string section and background singers will be performing tracks from his new album, ‘Stardust- The Great American Songbook Volume III’, out October 18th, as well as tracks from his amazing catalogue of 30 years of hits.
Rod Stewart has spent most of 2004 on the road, having just completed an acclaimed 82 date American tour, ‘From Maggie May to the Great American Songbook’.
The success of the Great American Songbook series has been nothing short of phenomenal with the albums selling in excess of ten million copies worldwide, 1 million in the UK. The new album features some of the most loved standards ever, including ‘What A Wonderful World’, ‘Blue Moon’, ‘For Sentimental Reasons’ and ‘S’Wonderful’ all delivered in Rod’s inimitable style.
Metro Radio Arena’s Marketing Director Paul Tappenden said: -”This is yet another great announcement in a week that has already seen the release of Riverdance and Greenday. The Metro Radio Arena continues to attract the some of the world’s most renowned artists to the North East to provide unrivalled entertainment choice”.
