Rod Stewart Announces 2013 ‘Live the Life’ Tour
For three weeks next year, arenas across North America will rock to the sounds of some classic British blue-eyed soul. Yesterday (Dec. 3) Rod Stewart announced ten dates in the spring as the 'Live the Life' tour. The dates are listed below.
And since his touring partner of the past few years, Stevie Nicks, will be otherwise occupied with Fleetwood Mac's upcoming tour at about the same time, Stewart has had to find a different opening act. Luckily, he found one in a fellow Brit whose music is steeped in American rhythm-and-blues, Steve Winwood.
As of now, the tour is focused exclusively on the eastern half of North America, with the tour opener in Chicago's United Center on April 10 being the westernmost show so far. More dates are expected to be revealed in the future. Tickets for all concerts go on sale beginning Saturday, Dec. 8. Visit Stewart's website for more information.
Stewart has had a busy 2013. This summer he released his autobiography, where he admitted that he took cocaine anally. In October, he put out his first-ever Christmas album, 'Merry Christmas, Baby,' and he has a new disc of original material planned to coincide with the upcoming tour. In July Stewart said that the album could possibly be a sequel to his 1970 classic, 'Gasoline Alley.'
