Rod Stewart: South Island Concert Added In Dunedin
AUCKLAND, NZ (Feb 28, 2020) – SIR ROD STEWART returns to New Zealand this November with his ‘The Hits! Tour’.
Following the exceptional demand for tickets to his two Mission Estate shows in Napier, Live Nation is now thrilled to confirm that Rod Stewart will perform a third New Zealand concert especially for his South Island fans, playing Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on Wednesday, November 11. Stewart last performed at the stadium in 2015 to a sell-out audience of 25,000.
At the very top of his game Stewart completed a triumphant stadium tour last year, followed by one of his biggest national UK tours ever, with live performances running throughout November and December in 2019. In addition, he also toured the USA, with highlights including a series of headline shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as part of a multi-year residency and three sold-out Hollywood Bowl concerts in September in LA for a landmark reunion set with his former bandmate Jeff Beck.
In November (2019), Warner Music honoured the legendary singer-songwriter with a new album release which showcases Stewart’s biggest hits with his classic vocal style set to full orchestral arrangements.
YOU’RE IN MY HEART: ROD STEWART WITH THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA pairs classical vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The music will also be available to download digitally and via streaming services and is available to order here
