Rod Stewart Live

10th December 2019

Model train enthusiast, Celtic superfan and musical icon Rod Stewart arrived at the Liverpool M&S Bank Arena and Andy Von Pip was there to capture the leopard skin-clad musical knight in action.

Rod Stewart (Sir) arrived at the Liverpool arena as part of his first UK tour in 3 years, in the wake of the release of his 30th album Blood Red Roses.

Rod wowed the audience with a mixture of new material classic hits, and cover versions he has made his own over the years. He barely paused for breath throughout a hugely entertaining and energetic set. According to the support band, Johnny Mac and the Faithful, Echo and The Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch was in attendance, which in some ways encapsulates Rod’s enduring appeal and ability to captivate audiences from across the musical spectrum.  How many 74 years olds can get away with wearing leopard skin and deliver a two hour set with such gusto, vigour and charm?
