A night on the town: Sir Rod Stewart to perform in Geelong

November 14, 2019 BY

Sir Rod Stewart will croon his way into the hearts of fans at Mount Duneed Estate next year as he journeys down under for an eight-date tour.

The British rocker is set to return to A Day on the Green and deliver his first performance at the Geelong winery, a venue that has quickly built a reputation for securing big name acts including Florence and the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sir Elton John and Cold Chisel.

This year Sir Rod celebrates 50 years a solo performer, selling more than 250 million records worldwide since he first reached out and touched the lives of his loyal followers from around the globe.

He’s had 27 Top 40 hits in Australia, ticking off four number one singles as well as seven number one albums on the Aussie charts.

He was knighted at Buckingham Palace in 2016 for his services to music and charity.

The 74-year-old “Forever Young” singer holds the record for the largest-ever free concert – attracting an estimated 4.2 million people to his show at Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro on New Year’s Eve in the mid-1990s.

He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: once for his time with Faces, the second for his solo work.

Tickets to Sir Rod Stewart at A Day on the Green will be available on November 22 (9am local time) via ticketmaster.com.au, the same day his new album is released.

Members will have access to pre-sale tickets on November 21 at 12pm local time. He will play at Mt Duneed Estate on October 31. More information can be found at adayonthegreen.com.au.
