Rod Stewart Adds Show To Summer Stadium Tour

Rod Stewart has added an extra show to his UK Summer Stadium Tour, at Newcastle's St James' Park on June 25.

The addition of an eighth date to his UK tour is because of public demand for tickets.

The singer who is currently on a 65-date US tour, is wowing crowds with his greatest hits set.

He said: "This time it's all the rockers, I'm putting the Great American Song Book away and opening up the Greatest Hits Book. I'm going back to my roots, doing all my favourite songs. The shows in the US have been lots of fun and I can't wait to play in the UK."

The Newcastle date will now be the opening show of the European leg of his world tour, before Stewart carrys on to Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Belfast, Poland and Norway.

Tickets for the additional show will go on sale this Friday (April 6) at 9am.

The UK shows are:

Newcastle, St James' Park (June 25)
Manchester, City of Manchester Stadium (28)
London, Twickenham Stadium (30)
Ipswich, Football Club (July 3)
Glasgow, Hampden Park Stadium (5 / 6)
Cardiff, Millennium Stadium (7)
Coventry, Ricoh Arena (10)
