With forty years of chart-topping singles and albums under his belt, The Frontier Touring Company are delighted to announce that Rod Stewart will be rocking his incredible ‘The Hits’ tour on stages in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne as well as two special concerts at Hope Estate Winery in the Hunter Valley and Hanging Rock in the Macedon Ranges.
Having a phenomenal 62 hit singles in the UK, of which 31 reached the top 10, concert goers can expect to be treated to the likes of Tonight’s The Night, Maggie May, You Wear It Well, Stay With Me, The First Cut Is the Deepest, Sailing, Hot Legs, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy…the list of Rod Stewart’s chart-toppers goes on and on. And if past tours are anything to go by Rod will smash out hit after hit live with his trademark style and panache, treating fans to a massive trip down memory lane and one hell of a night out.
In 1971 Rod secured his first major solo hit with Maggie May, the b-side to Reason To Believe. The single and album Every Picture Tells A Story subsequently hit number one in Australia, the US and UK. From there Rod didn’t look back, compiling an impressive record of hit singles and albums across his career. Now into his fifth decade in the business, Rod has sold over 200 million records, CDs and downloads worldwide.
Recently Rod entertained a crowd of 65,000 at Hyde Park, with the Mirror UK writing; “Rod Stewart…stole the show…The crowd, young and old, sang along to hit after hit, as Rod took them on a musical journey through his career.”
Notably Rod Stewart is the second ever artist to be confirmed to perform at Victoria’s famous Hanging Rock. Frontier proudly hosted Leonard Cohen as the stunning site’s first ever performer in 2010 and are delighted to announce Rod Stewart’s concert as part of the Hanging Rock concert series. Ticket numbers for this show will be limited so fans are urged to get in early.
Joining Rod on tour throughout Australia is none other than Australia’s own hit maker Diesel, whose latest album Under The Influence (Liberation) was released recently to critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone summing things up quite simply with “Damn but this kid can play”.
