ROD Stewart is to make a sensational return to Home Park in 2016.
Fresh from his triumphant Hyde Park Radio 2 show where he played to more than 50,000 people, and on the eve of releasing a brand new studio album ’Another Country’, Rod Stewart today announced an eight date UK stadium tour which will include a concert at Home Park on Tuesday, June 7.
Rod previously played to a packed Home Park in July 2009.
Plymouth Argyle chief executive Martyn Starnes said: “On behalf of Britain's Ocean City, the football club is delighted to welcome Rod Stewart back to Home Park and to the Westcountry.
“Rod's previous triumphant concert at the stadium is still remembered by those who packed the ground to hear him then, and we are sure that demand for tickets this time will reflect the expectation of what is sure to be another sensational Plymouth night.”
The fully seated outdoor tour is being presented by Cuffe and Taylor whose director Peter Taylor said: “We are thrilled to be working with Rod Stewart and his team yet again. In 2014 we worked on three dates and I am delighted we are the sole promoter of the Rod Stewart Stadium Tour for 2016.
“The venues stretch right across the UK giving tens of thousands of people the opportunity to see one of the best live acts in the world. It is great that all but two of the venues are new to Rod Stewart and we are confident there will be a lot of excitement as summer approaches.”

With his singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 200 million albums and singles worldwide.
Throughout his career Rod has garnered two inductions into the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, won a Grammy, the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting, and in 2007 was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen.
The new album ‘Another Country’ is co-produced by Rod and Kevin Savigar and is released on October 30. It follows the huge success of 2012’s ‘Time’ which entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist - while in the US, it marked Stewart's highest-charting album of original material since 1979.
In 2012, Stewart became a New York Times Bestselling author with the release of his autobiography ‘Rod’.
