Rod Stewart and Live Nation Entertainment have entered into a multi-year global touring partnership that will have the promotion company producing and promoting Stewart’s concerts around the world, starting with a run of sold-out U.K. dates this summer.   

“First, last and always my job is giving fans the best show I have in me,” said Stewart, in a statement. “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.”    

Stewart’s longtime manager Arnold Stiefel added, “[Live Nation Entertainment president/CEO] Michael Rapino, [co-president of North American Touring] 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 Franks. “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 U.K. and Europe throughout 2019 and in 2020 will bring his concert tour to South America, Australia, Asia and New Zealand with Live Nation. The shows follow his 2017 and 2018 North American summer tours with special guest Cyndi Lauper.
