At the very top of his game, Rod Stewart has followed a triumphant stadium tour this UK summer with one of his biggest UK tours ever, with live performances running through November and December of 2019. In addition, he has also toured the USA, with highlights including headlining a series of shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as part of a multi-year residency and adding a third sold-out Hollywood Bowl concert in LA for a landmark reunion set with his former bandmate Jeff Beck.
Warner Music will honour the legendary singer with a new album to be released November 22 which will allow fans to hear Rod’s biggest hits with his classic vocal style set to full orchestral arrangements.

a day on the green is excited to return to the picturesque Centennial Vineyards in the beautiful Southern Highlands area of NSW. “We’re thrilled to return to Bowral with one of the biggest superstars in the world, SIR ROD STEWART,” said Roundhouse Entertainment Promoter Michael Newton. “Some of the most memorable shows in a day on the green history were at Centennial Vineyards with music icons Leonard Cohen, Alicia Keys and Lionel Richie, so it’s appropriate we return with an artist of Rod’s renowned stature.”
The Roundhouse team has worked closely with winery owner John Large to develop the new venue at Centennial Vineyards with upgraded facilities. “It’s an amazing location within striking distance from Sydney, Canberra and the NSW South Coast,” Mr Newton said. “We look forward to many more great concerts here in the future.”
ROD STEWART has received all of the music industry’s highest honours, including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (solo and with the Faces). He was also proclaimed a GrammyTM Living Legend.
In 2016 he officially became “Sir Rod Stewart” after being knighted at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity. He has performed for millions of fans on six continents, even holding the record for the largest-ever free concert, for an estimated 4.2 million in Rio de Janeiro on New Year’s Eve in 1996.
