Rod Stewart will hit the road in 2019 with a UK tour to support of the release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses, and will perform at Molineux on Saturday 8th June.
There will be a special window for season ticket holders and members to purchase pre-sale tickets for Sir Rod’s first UK tour in three years, which will be the first music concert to be held at Molineux since Bon Jovi in 2003.
With his signature voice, style and songwriting, Rod Stewart has transcended all genres of popular music, from rock, folk, soul, R&B, and even the American standards; making him one of the few stars to enjoy chart-topping albums throughout every decade of his career.
Wolves Managing Director Laurie Dalrymple said: “It has been 15 years since Molineux hosted a live music event, so today’s announcement is very significant for both Wolves and the city of Wolverhampton.
“Attracting top performers like Rod Stewart to Wolverhampton is part of our wider strategic plan to make Molineux a multi-purpose entertainment destination that welcomes visitors from the city and further afield.
“We will work closely with the City Council to ensure a successful event that drives local economy whilst being considerate to residents.”
Rod Stewart Live In Concert will see Rod play the following dates and venues:
- 31 May Southampton, St Mary’s Stadium
- 1 June York, York Racecourse
- 4 June Milton Keynes, Stadium MK
- 7 June Ipswich, Portman Road Stadium
- 8 June Wolverhampton, Molineux Stadium
- 12 June Aberdeen, AECC
- 14 June Bolton, University of Bolton Stadium
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 21st September from ticketmaster.co.uk, but before that there will be two pre-sale windows.
The first pre-sale will be at 9am on Wednesday September 19th and can be accessed by pre-ordering Rod’s new album Blood Red Roses from hmv.com, whilst season ticket holders and members will be able to pre-order tickets at 9am on Thursday 20th September. More information on how to do this will be emailed to those eligible next week.
Rod’s 2019 shows promise to be filled with both classics and new hits in his dazzling signature style. As one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with more than 200 million records sold worldwide, his performance will include show stopping classics from his glittering career.
Concert-goers will be treated to tracks from his soon to be released new album Blood Red Roses - a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers – which is released almost 50 years to the date from when he signed his very first solo recording contract.
