Rod Stewart will perform his first club show in years and hold a fan question-and-answer forum on Thursday, Apr. 25, when the legendary singer-songwriter takes the stage at the 400-capacity Troubadour in Los Angeles.
Stewart will use the intimate one-off to play selections from his forthcoming studio album, Time, as well as his classic hits. Immediately following the performance, the 68-year-old will take questions about his new music.
For fans outside of L.A., the Troubadour performance will be available on-demand through both VEVO and YouTube beginning on Apr. 27, in countries including the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil and Spain. The online event will also feature pre-show interviews and previously unseen footage, according to a press release.
Time, Stewart's 28th studio album and his first full-length of entirely new material since 2001, will be released May 7 through Capitol Records. The album's first single, "She Makes Me Happy," was released last month.
The new album quickly follows Stewart's debut holiday release, Merry Christmas, Baby, which hit stores last October and rose to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, his highest rank since 2006.
Stewart previewed his Capitol debut last month at RdV in New York last month, and described his desire to write a new set original songs following a decade-long break. "An issue which I thought had long passed and which I'd given up, songwriting, has come back, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it," said Stewart.
