Rod Stewart is heading out on the road in North America next spring, and he’s bringing Steve Winwood with him for support.
The two rock legends will kick off the “Live the Life” tour on April 10 at the United Center in Chicago, and the tour is scheduled to run through a May 1 show at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Other cities the pair will hit include Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, New York and Atlanta.
“I’m thrilled to be touring with Steve Winwood, he is truly part of rock and roll’s enduring tapestry,” said Rod Stewart in a statement that definitely sounds like you’d expect a press release statement to sound.
Recently, Stewart has been celebrating the success of his latest release, Merry Christmas, Baby. The album, which is his first holiday record, landed Stewart his 16th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 albums chart. He also climbed to the top of the Adult Contemporary singles chart (once again) with his new rendition of “Let It Snow.”
The new album capped off quite the year for Stewart that started with him being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame along with the Faces. Stewart had previously been inducted into the Hall as a solo artist.
After a summer tour with Stevie Nicks, Stewart released his first memoir – “ROD: The Autobiography.” The book made the New York Times best-seller list. And if all that weren’t enough, he also continued his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Steve Winwood, also a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is known as an integral part of several bands, including Traffic, Blind Faith, Spencer Davis Group and Go. He is known as the singer of songs including “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “Higher Love” and “Can’t Find My Way Home.”
