Rod Stewart announces 2019 UK tour Sep 14 2018 | Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre

In support of the release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses, Rod Stewart will hit the road in 2019 with a UK tour.

Rod Stewart Live In Concert will visit football stadiums and outdoor venues across England and Scotland including a date at Aberdeen’s AECC on Wednesday June 12.

Louise Stewart, head of entertainment, exhibitions and marketing at AECC, said: “We’re honoured and very excited to welcome Rod Stewart back to Aberdeen, this will possibly be our last gig before we move to our new venue, TECA, in summer 2019.

“Rod was one of our first ever gigs here at AECC back in 1991 and now he’ll be one of the last!

“Having last played Pittodrie in 2011 we’re sure everyone’s ready to give our honorary ‘Scottish Rock Royalty’ a warm welcome and help us end on a high!”

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.”

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.
