“If ever any rocker chose the role of everyman and lived up to it, it was Rod Stewart,” proclaimed The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll. Fans are well acquainted with the Grammy Living Legend's down-to-earth qualities, from his lifelong love of soccer—both as a fan and a player—to his modesty and self-deprecating sense of humor. During “Rod Stewart: The Hits,” the famed singer-songwriter weaves his charming personality into a set that spans his five-decade career. Stewart's charismatic energy and his voice—tinged with the just right amount of age—inspire the crowd to sing along and dance to a trove of classic tunes, each one as indelible as his legendary coif. “Maggie May,” You Wear it Well,” “Hot Legs,” and “Da Ya Think I'm Sexy,” mix with rarities such as “The Killing of Georgie,” plus a handful of strut-inducing covers.
