Rod Stewart & Cheap Trick Roll Out Rescheduled Dates

The long awaited Rod Stewart / Cheap Trick tour is finally happening this summer. The trek, which due to the pandemic was postponed in both 2020 and 2021, is finally happening and swill hits the South, the East Coast, and Midwest over 19 dates. The tour launches on July 1st at Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena and wraps on September 3rd at Tampa’s Amalie Arena.

A while back, Rod Stewart explained to us that he’s never once considered giving up what he does: “You never outgrow hits, I mean, it’s always a big thrill to ya. I’m a committed musician. I love it. I love makin’ music, I really love gettin’ up and singin’ for people. I see the smiling faces and you go home and you think you’ve sent them all home happy.”

Rick Nielsen told us that Cheap Trick is just one of those bands that was so unhip, they actually became cool: “What we did was the total antithesis of everything, of what was going on. We didn’t wanna be like anybody else, but we didn’t know what we wanted to be. So, it’s like, I was always kind of a jerk and a class clown — so why change into being some charming person? We were being ourselves. At the time, there were so many bands that they tried to look like their mothers and y’know, get their hair done with the same hairspray as their mother’s had. And everybody wanted to be the lead singer or the guitar player — look at me — I was never gonna be Jimmy Page or, y’know. . . It was all about the music.”
