Rod Stewart will play special one-off club gig and fan Q&A at L.A. legendary Troubadour on Thursday, April 25th. Rod will be performing a selection of tracks from his upcoming new album, Time, which is due out on May 7th. The new album marks his long-awaited return to songwriting and features 11 new songs, which he co-wrote and produced.
Fans who are unable to catch the Troubadour gig can also be part of the event beginning Saturday, April 27th, when the show will be available on-demand globally on VEVO and YouTube in countries including the U.S., Canada, England, France, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Spain, and Italy. The streaming event will also include exclusive unseen footage including pre-show interviews, b-roll footage, and more.
Rod Stewart told us that although his recent American Songbook albums have sold incredibly well, these days, getting substantial radio airplay is still tough for an older artist: "You're running up against, y'know, the airplay situation. They don't seem to want to play anybody that's over 35 anymore, y'know, and even over 30. I'm not complaining. Y'know, I think we've had a really good run at it -- the people that came along in the early '70s and are still here, like Elton and (David) Bowie, and myself -- and I don't think anybody can complain if they're playing other people on the radio."
Rod Stewart's next North American date will be the kickoff of his latest Las Vegas run on July 20th at The Colosseum At Caesars Palace.
