This is everything you need to know about the Rod Stewart concert at Bramall Lane tonight
Legendary rock star, Rod Stewart, is set to put on one hell of a show at Bramall Lane tonight – and this is everything you need to know about timings, the venue’s bag policy and more.
The You Wear It Well rocker will though be belting out his greatest hits which also includes the likes of Maggie May, Sailing, I Don't Want To Talk About It and yes, Do Ya Think I'm Sexy.
He will also perform new songs, in his dazzling signature style, from latest album Blood Red Roses, when he takes the stage at Sheffield's Bramall Lane.
Commenting on what fans can expect from tonight’s performance, Sir Rod said: “I’m not going to take my trousers down, not this time, maybe when I get really desperate I will. When you forget to put your trousers on, maybe that’s the time to pack it in.”
