Tour Follows In The Footsteps of Rod Stewart's #1 Selling Album

LOS ANGELES NOVEMBER 6. 2006 -- Rock icon Rod Stewart will be hitting the road with his 56-city 2007 North American tour, kicking off January 12, 2007 at BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The tour will celebrate Rod's recent return to his rock roots with his #1 chart-topping album Still The Same -Great Rock Classics of Our Time and feature all of the classic hits from his more than three decade career. In addition, for the first time in over a decade, Rod's stage will be designed in the round, giving fans an intimate 360° view of the concert. Tickets will go on-sale beginning Saturday, November 11th at 10:00 AM local time.



Stewart's 2007 North American tour will be a culmination of the legendary singer's nearly four decades of hits from the seminal Every Picture Tells A Story to his first #1 album Blondes Have More Fun spanning through Out Of Order, Downtown Train and culminating with his newest chart topping rock album Still The Same -Great Rock Classics of Our Time. Stewart's trademark voice has successfully commanded nearly every genre of music including folk, rock, soul, R&B, blues and more, even managing to breathe a unique modernity into the classics. Rod Stewart's North American tour is promoted by AEG LIVE.



Rod Stewart's tour is scheduled for arena concert stops in New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta, Washington, DC, Toronto and more (Tour itinerary listed below). The tour will feature a rotating circular center stage designed to deliver fans unfettered viewing of the concert. Accompanying Rod on stage will be a nine piece band and his three stellar back up singers.



Released on October 10th of 2006, STILL THE SAME -GREAT ROCK CLASSICS OF OUR TIME has been hailed as an incredibly strong and passionate return to form for Stewart. The album reflects his thoughtful approach to the selected tracks crafted by some of the best songwriters of our time including Bob Dylan ("If Not For You"), Van Morrison ("Crazy Love"), Bob Seger ("Still the Same") and John Fogerty ("Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" which was the #1 most added single at the AC radio format 3 solid weeks in a row). Several of Stewart's other selections sound like they were written for his signature, inimitable rasp in the first place, like Bonnie Tyler's "It's a Heartache" and "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," a 1976 hit for Elvin Bishop.
