With 250 million album sales and a career spanning six decades, Sir Rod Stewart has already secured his place among pop music’s greats.
And yet the veteran rocker, whose hits include ‘Sailing’, ‘Baby Jane’ and ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’, appears to have no plans to retire any time soon.
In fact, Sir Rod has just taken on even more work - adding four new gigs to what was already an eight-date UK arena tour in support of his 2021 album ‘The Tears of Hercules’.

When did Rod Stewart’s new album come out?
The Tears of Hercules was released on 12 November 2021 and peaked at number five in the Official Chart Company’s album chart.
It was the 77-year-old’s 31st studio album.
The album has 12 tracks, nine of which were written by Sir Rod.
The Tears of Hercules features a song titled ‘Touchline’, which the rock star has dedicated to his father, and reflects on his family’s love of football.
In the album’s sleeve note, Sir Rod describes his latest effort as “by far my best album in many a year”.
He will no doubt be hoping it will emulate the success of his most recent effort - 2019’s ‘You’re in my Heart’ - which became his tenth number one album.
Should The Tears of Hercules succeed, he will once again break the record for the oldest male solo artist to ever top the UK Official Albums Chart.
Sir Rod was 74 years and 11 months old when he teamed up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to release ‘You’re in my Heart’.
