Rod Stewart and Cheap Trick to Tour North America Together

Rod Stewart and Cheap Trick have announced a North American tour together from July 21 to Sept. 5, with the band opening for the singer.

The road trip starts in Cleveland on July 21 and ends in Chicago on Sept. 5, with most general tickets going on sale at 10AM local time on Jan. 10. Stewart’s fan club opens a pre-sale at 10AM today, while Cheap Trick’s pre-sale launching on Jan. 8 at 10AM local time.

You can see the full list of tour dates below.

Stewart – who’s currently facing legal action over an alleged assault incident – recently released an orchestral album of some of his older songs, You’re in My Heart, but admitted he wasn’t fully satisfied with the recording of a new track, “Stop Loving Her Today,” which came out as a single in November.

“I think we might have gilded the lily with the strings on it, and we might do a remix where we take them down a little,” he said. “They’re a bit too loud.”

He also admitted he wouldn’t pay to attend an orchestral concert. “I told them I’d like to hear a couple of takes and see what they can do with these songs,” he explained. “I was pleasantly surprised with what they came back with.”
