Rod Stewart’s Time has reached number one on the charts and it did so by trying its best to recreate the sound of his last non-American Songbook album to reach number one in the states, Blondes Have More Fun. What does this mean for those with Rod Stewart tickets to see him perform at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace from June 4 to August 4, 2013?
It means very little as the sound on the new album is an extension of the program for the Vegas residency, which is built around his hits (It is called “The Hits”). The fans of the smoky-voiced singer will still get to listen to “Maggie May”, “You Wear It Well”, “Tonight’s the Night”, and “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”.
The one change they may notice is fewer soccer balls being kicked into the stands. Stewart has long made this a part of his act, as he started off as an aspiring professional soccer player before settling on the rock and roll lifestyle. However, employees at the Caesars have expressed concern that some fanatical audience member may take a dive off the balcony trying to catch one of those balls. Given that Rod the Mod was getting them up to the third balcony, this might not be such a ridiculous request.
He may be able to recover from making his daughter’s sex life public knowledge or admitting to dabbling with cocaine suppositories in the past, but I am not sure even Rod Stewart could not recover from this kind of a tragedy in the middle of his set. So, be prepared to enjoy an once-in-a-lifetime show at the Colloseum with a little less athletics.
