IF you want his body, and you think he’s sexy, a tribute act is set to remind an audience by Rod Stewart became a superstar.

Fans of the tight-trousered balladeer will be delighted to hear that The Rod Stewart Story is touring UK theatres, and The Roses in Tewkesbury will be a stop.

A spokesman said: “Fifty years on from the release of Rod’s first album, Some Guys Have All The Luck – The Rod Stewart Story is back in theatres in 2019 with a brand new show, bringing to the stage a fantastic live concert celebration of one of rock music’s greatest icons.

“Frontman Paul Metcalfe is incredible as Rod and captures all the excitement, energy and charisma of the legendary performer including the infamous moves, showmanship and sense of fun that have made Rod one of the most successful artistes of all time.”

The spokesman added: “The first half of the show features hits from Rod’s earlier career such as Handbags & Gladrags and You Wear It Well along with some Faces’ favourites like Stay With Me and Twisting The Night Away, all interwoven with some interesting and amusing anecdotes, and takes you on a musical journey through Rod’s career over the last five decades - from humble beginnings to superstardom.

“The second half includes all Rod’s big hits such as Maggie May, Baby Jane, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, Sailing, Tonight’s The Night, The First Cut Is The Deepest and You’re In My Heart.”

“This authentic production, now in its fourth year, includes a stunning stage set, a spectacular light show, an impeccable live band and stage-wide projections.”

As Don Stewart, Rod’s brother said: “I’ve seen some ‘Rods’ in my time, but Paul is the best one I’ve ever seen”

The date for The Roses show is Friday August 2 at 7.30 pm.
