Rod Stewart, born Roderick David Stewart, is an English born singer and musician who broke his way onto American music charts with the Jeff Beck Group in the late 1960s. His distinctive voice, characterized by its raspy nature, immediately appealed to wide audiences, allowing him to launch a solo career in 1969. Many of his songs have become influential hits, giving Stewart the power and celebrity necessary to create a lasting name for himself.
Despite the length of time between now and his last hit, Stewart’s legacy lives on strong. Audiences are still excited to see him perform, meaning that many people are ecstatic to hear that he just signed a two year contract to perform in the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas, Nevada.
