Rod Stewart announces return to Ireland with stadium show

ROD STEWART has announced that he will return to Ireland next year to play Cork's Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

He plays the home of Cork GAA on Saturday 25 May, 2019.

The Scottish singer made the announcement this morning ahead of the release of his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses.

This will be Rod’s first return to Ireland in three years following two sold-out tours in 2016.

Pre-sale tickets are due to go on sale at 10am next Tuesday, September 25 and can be acquired by purchasing the star’s new album from his official store.

General tickets will then go on sale on Thursday, September 27 at 9am from Ticketmaster.

UK dates were also announced.

Rod will play a big show at York Racecourse on June 1 next year.

The tour will kick off a day earlier at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium and will also play shows at Wolverhampton, Milton Keynes, Ipswich, Aberdeen and Bolton.

Concert-goers will be treated to tracks from his soon to be released new album which is described as a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers including ‘Grace’ – which is released almost 50 years to the date from when he signed his very first solo recording contract.

He’ll also be sure to play a number of his much-loved hits from his incredible catalogue of music that spans over five decades.
