He may be in his 60s and a wrinkly to some, but there's no doubt the pulling power Rod Stewart still has.
The Rod continues to be an enduring success - for years, he's wowed the crowds and fans with his selection of songs including "Maggie May", "Sailing", and "You wear it well" to name but a few.
He's been inducted into the UK music Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the accolades continue to pour in.
However, the news that he's heading to Auckland's Vector Arena here for his first tour in over three years has delighted his many fans down under - and even those who claim to be too cool to like the Rod.

In recent years Stewart has concentrated on singing 1930s and 1940s pop standards from the "Great American Songbook", written by songwriters such as Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, with great popular success but middling critical success. So it seems more than likely that as well as throwing in some of his own classics, he will be singing some of these as well.
