Rod in the round 

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stewart returns to Alltel Arena.

ROD IN THE ROUND: At Altell.
  • ROD IN THE ROUND: At Altell.

Rod Stewart, who rocked with the Jeff Beck Group and Faces as well as solo on such classic hits as “Maggie May,” discoed with the best of them, then turned love-song and pop-standard crooner in recent years, is back at Alltel Arena on Friday, April 27.

The 62-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will present this show “in the round,” giving his female fans a 360-degree opportunity to throw their undies at him.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $95, $65 and $55 through all Ticketmaster outlets (www.ticketmaster.com, 975-7575, Harvest Foods stores, Celebrity Attractions office at Third and Spring) or the arena box office (975-9000).

It’s estimated that Stewart, who was born and raised in London by a Scottish/English parents, has topped 250 million in album and single sales during his five-decade career. In the United Kingdom, 24 out of his 62 hit singles reached the top 10, with six hitting No. 1. While “Maggie May,” originally a B-side to the minor hit “Reason to Believe,” may be his most requested song, 1978’s disco hit “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” was his biggest selling song. Other hits include “Everybody Picture Tells a Story,” “Tonight’s the Night,” “Stay With Me” (with the Faces), “You Wear It Well,” a cover of “This Old Heart of Mine,” “Hot Legs,” “You’re in My Heart,” “Forever Young” and the Tom Waits-penned “Downtown Train.” His “Great American Songbook ...” series in recent years has been well received, and his returned to his roots with the late 2006 album, “Still the Same ... Great Rock Classics of Our Time,” which debuted No. 1 on the national Billboard album chart.
