    Today, Rod Stewart officially became Sir Roderick David Stewart. Billboard reports, "Rod Stewart joined the likes of Paul McCartney, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Tom Jones on Tuesday (Oct. 11) when he was knighted at Buckingham Palace. The 71-year-old rock icon was recognized for his contributions to music and charity by Prince William, who bestowed the honor on the "Maggie May" singer (and his wife, Lady Penny Lancaster), who paid homage to his Scottish heritage by wearing tartan-patterned pants and a jacket with military-style red and gold trim."

    After the ceremony, the royal family tweeted, "Congratulations Sir @RodStewart, honoured by The Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace today for services to music and charity."

    Stewart is currently still performing at Caesars Palace as part of his Las Vegas residency, which started back in 2011. He last released Another Country in 2015, and it went platinum in the United Kingdom. Stewart is set to begin his From Gasoline Alley to Another Country: Hits 2016 tour on November 4th in Stuttgart, Germany. The concert series has currently scheduled 20 dates across Europe. He will make stops in England, Scotland, Austria, and more. The tour is set to come to a close on December 18th in Liverpool, England.
