Mon, 18 Oct 2010 11:31:05
Rod Stewart is expecting another kid shortly, but that doesn't stop Rod from bringing home to bacon into his '60s. Stewart's chart-topping, multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning The Great American Songbook series adds a fifth title to the collection with the release of Fly Me to the Moon: The Great American Songbook Volume V, which hits your favorite local retail establishment tomorrow.
The Great American Songbook series has enjoyed status as the biggest selling ongoing series of new music recordings in history, with over 17 million copies sold worldwide. With an estimated 250 million in album and single sales, Rod Stewart is indisputably one of the most successful musical performers of all time. Yeah, I'd say that math secures Stewart's place in the pantheon of pop music.
In addition, nationally syndicated radio host Delilah is presenting "An Evening with Rod Stewart," a commercial-free radio special celebrating Fly Me to the Moon that was recorded live at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center in Miami, Florida. The special begins airing October 17 and running through November 25, featuring Delilah and Stewart as they discuss Rod's career, his new album and take questions from an audience packed with 350 listeners who won tickets from an affiliate.

I wonder if any of the fans will ask him about ex-wife, model Rachel Hunter. I kid, I kid.
Also, Rod Stewart is headed to Sin City. The "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" singer is set to perform eight shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace November 6 through 21, his first-ever Las Vegas run. This special engagement is presented jointly by Caesars Palace and AEG Live.
