The mega tour of legends Rod Stewart and Cheap Trick is back on the books after being postponed due to the pandemic. We will see these iconic artists when they arrive in the US in July and play dates into September.
Rod Stewart’s tour titled The Hits was slated for 2020 before being pushed to next year. He had just released “You’re in My Heart: Rod Stewart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” in November 2019 and includes orchestral versions of “Have I Told You Lately,” “Maggie May,” “Reason to Believe,” “The First Cut is the Deepest,” “I Was Only Joking,” “Young Turks,” “Tonight’s The Night,” and of course, “Forever Young.”
The album debuted at number one on the charts and camped there for a few weeks.
As if Stewart alone was not huge, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick will support the tour and add their own historic tracks to the stage. Original members, front-man Robin Zander, guitarist Rick Nielsen, and bassist Tom Petersson, will bring along sons Daxx Nielsen and Robin Taylor Zander as the rhythm section.
If their set is like their recent show in Southern California, it will include hits “I Want You To Want Me,” “Surrender,” “Downed,” “Dream Police,” “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Clock Strikes Ten,” “She’s Tight,” “Goodnight,” “Hello There,” and “Light Up The Fire.” Of course, they have more to offer, so perhaps there will be some surprises.
They released their album “In Another World,” this past April, so there may be some “new to you live” songs as well.
These two artists will put on an amazing show, so don’t miss out. If you have tickets from the 2020 dates, they will be valid in 2022.
