Rod Stewart is a living icon of British rock music. With a plethora of awards and number one hits across six decades in music, Stewart has turned live performance into an art form. The only thing he is better at is trashing hotel rooms!
His distinctive voice is well known for classic hits such as ‘Maggie May’, ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’ and ‘Sailing’. In recent years his ecliptic songbook has included albums focusing on soul music, Motown and even Christmas.
