Rod Stewart & Steve Winwood Out On The Road
Rod Stewart is currently out on the road with Steve Winwood opening. The pair is playing a few warm-up dates before Rod returns to his Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace, with Winwood squeezing in a few smaller theater gigs along the way. The two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, who have known each other since the "Swinging London" days, will regroup in December for seven more arena shows. Rod Stewart spoke about his longtime admiration for Winwood, telling ABC News, "Steve was actually famous before I was. He's not only a fantastic singer that I look up to and always have done, but you know, we're old school. I think, especially, if we get to sing a couple of songs together, it's gonna be fun."
 
We asked Steve Winwood if he's at all worried that his solo gigs will be overlooked as he becomes the go-to-guy opening act for high-end arena bands such as Rod Stewart, Santana, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: "It's interesting. Y'know, I think there's something to be said for both. And then of course before that I was out with the Tom Petty tour, which was a success. But I think it was . . . I think it worked in conjunction with my shows. I wouldn't like to think that that was the only thing I was doing. I still like the idea of doing my shows as well. So I think it sort of broadens the view of my music, I should think."
