The concert is one of four new dates added following huge demand for previously announced shows that form his UK tour next year.

The shows are in support of the release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses, which debuted at number one on its release in September.

This will mark the first concert held at Bramall Lane since Bruce Springsteen played two nights at the venue back in 1988.

Fans can expect to hear hits old and new from the former Faces frontman, who is estimated to have sold more than 200 million records.

The tour is being promoted by Cuffe and Taylor whose director Peter Taylor said: “We are delighted to be adding the Sheffield date to Rod Stewart Live In Concert. As his fans know, Rod presents the most amazing shows.”
