The Countdown is on for Rod!

13th May 2019

Now that the football season has come to a successful end, Bramall Lane turns its attention to the Rod Stewart concert as he heads to Sheffield in June as part of his 2019 UK summer tour.

Due to the huge demand for the previously announced shows, Rod will now play an extra two outdoor shows plus two arena dates in support of the release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses which debuted at number one. And the tour includes a stop at Bramall Lane Stadium on Saturday 15th June. His Sheffield show marks the first time there has been a concert at the football club since Bruce Springsteen played two nights at the venue back in 1988. United Operations Director Dave McCarthy said: "Rod Stewart is one of the world's best-known and best-loved performers. "We are delighted he has chosen our Bramall Lane stadium and it is further recognition that we have a stadium capable of staging or being associated with high-profile events. "We look forward to welcoming music fans, not only from Sheffield, South Yorkshire and the North Midlands, but fans of Rod from all over the country, as big scale concerts make a welcome return to our stadium. "This concert will be one of the unmissable events of the summer." Tickets are still available and are on sale now from https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/rod-stewart-live-in-concert-sheffield-15-06-2019/event/3500556EE8E76BE6 The fully seated tour is being promoted by Cuffe and Taylor whose director Peter Taylor said: "We are delighted to be adding the Sheffield date to Rod Stewart Live In Concert. We have presented numerous shows with him over the past five years and this will be our second full tour with him. Rod's 2019 shows promise to be filled with both classics and new hits in his dazzling signature style. As one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with more than 200 million records sold worldwide, his performance will include show stopping classics from his glittering career as well as new album Blood Red Roses - a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers.
