Back by popular demand, Rod Stewart will return to the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, September 27th. The concert event will feature a landmark reunion set with his former band mate, also a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Jeff Beck, for what will be their most in depth concert in over 35 years.
The Jeff Beck Group made their American debut in 1968 opening for the Grateful Dead at the Fillmore East. That performance earned them a career-making review from Robert Shelton of the New York Times, saying: “The group’s principal format is the interaction of Mr. Beck’s wild and visionary guitar against the hoarse and insistent shouting of Rod Stewart… Their dialogues were lean and laconic, the verbal Ping-Pong of a musical Pinter play. The climaxes were primal, bringing the “big beat” of the English rock school forward… (with) whimsy and invention and modernist games thrown in.”
Rod Stewart will return to Las Vegas this fall for eight shows only of his acclaimed residency “Rod Stewart: The Hits.” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted singer-songwriter will kick-off a year-long European tour this May, making these Las Vegas concerts his only US shows of 2019. “Rod Stewart: The Hits.” will run Sept 18. through Oct. 5, 2019, with tickets going on sale to the public beginning Friday, March 15 at noon PT.

Blood Red Roses is offered as a 13-track standard and a 16-track deluxe album.This new album, his first in three years, follows international bestsellers Another Country (2015) and Time (2013) and will be released nearly 50 years to the date of when he signed his very first solo recording contract.Co-produced by Stewart’s long-term collaborator Kevin Savigar, Blood Red Roses moves easily from acoustic-driven folk through Motown-tinged pop/R&B to unadulterated rock’n’roll and heart-melting ballads.
Blood Red Roses was made in a most un-rock star-like fashion –
“Most of these songs were recorded trans-Atlantic,” Stewart explains, opting mostly to record with his band while on tour. “It was all done in hotel rooms or backstage after concerts. We’d stay behind for a couple of hours and if we were in the mood we’d do some recording. It’s a great way to make a record. It meant that you’re not locked in one space for months on end. We never really went near a traditional recording studio which I think was great. I’ve spent too many years locked in dull studios, not wanting to be in there. I always think I make albums for a few friends, and this record has that intimacy.”
The album is available worldwide now and can be purchased online here.
