UPDATE: Rod Stewart apparently has step throat and has postponed 2 shows.  One is the show scheduled at the Xcel.   The show has been postponed until Sunday, October 14th.  Tickets will be honored at that time.

 

Tomorrow night is a big night for Rod Stewart fans. Rod Stewart will take the stage at the Xcel tomorrow night.  Cyndi Lauper is Rod's opening act. Should be a great show.

It was 47 years ago today that Rod released his solo debut "Maggie May" which rocketed him into stardom. The ultimate rock star has managed to stay on top of the game for over fifty years now.

I happened to be browsing my parents music collection several years ago, mid you, my parents were in their 80's. I was surprised to find a couple of Rod Stewart CD's in my dad's collection. At his age he was liking this Rod Stewart guy. His favorite was Stewart's Cd of the old classics from artists of my dad's era.

If you are lucky enough to have tickets, I'm sure you'll enjoy the show. If you don't have tickets, take a shot and call Xcel for any available tickets.
