Today, Sir Rod Stewart and Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment company, announced an exclusive multi-year global touring partnership. The deal will have Live Nation produce and promote Rod Stewart’s concert events around the world including this summer’s sold-out UK stadium dates.
“First, last and always my job is giving fans the best show I have in me,” remarked Rod Stewart. “ With Live Nation’s backing, I’m able to show up and sing knowing that everything that has led up to me taking the stage has been done with cracking perfection.” Added Arnold Stiefel, chairman of Stiefel Entertainment and Stewart’s longtime manager: “Michael Rapino, Rick Franks and the entire Live Nation team are at the top of their field for good reason. Their single-minded focus on the fan and artist experience is second to none and we’re proud to be extending our partnership internationally.“
“Rod Stewart has been an iconic voice and worldwide touring force for over five decades,” said Rick Franks, Co-President of North American Touring. “Live Nation is proud of the relationship we’ve built with Rod over the years and we look forward to continuing to bring his legendary repertoire to fans around the world.”
Stewart will perform across the UK and Europe throughout 2019 and in 2020 will bring his concert tour to South America, Australia, Asia and New Zealand with Live Nation. He plotted two extensive and critically-acclaimed North American tours over the summers of 2017 and 2018 with special guest Cyndi Lauper.
