Billboard reports that Rod Stewart be invading Sin City this Summer. That's right, Stewart will be appearing at Las Vegas' Colosseum at Caesars Palace for a two-year residency, beginning August 24th. The first 18 concerts of "Rod Stewart: The Hits" go on sale May 15th.
Stewart says the show will be "90 percent songs that people know," including "Maggie May," "The First Cut Is the Deepest" and "You're in My Heart." The songs were performed at the Colosseum when he played at the 4,100-seat venue in November.
"It's a rock'n'roll show," Stewart, who will be backed by a 13-piece band, told Billboard.biz. "We'll try to give the people what they want, which are the songs that made me famous, plus a few surprises. There won't be any magicians or midgets, just a good rock show."
Stewart in Vegas? I may just need to plan a trip to Sin City. Or maybe I won't since he is nixing magicians and midgets, since those are enough to make me want to attend.
