Reigning Rocker          Wednesday

SaskTel Centre

There’s not many musicians out there that can lay claim to a six decade long career but Rod Stewart is still going strong. Stewart is currently out on tour for the Spring and Summer and he’s just finished his latest album Blood Red Roses that’s set to be released later this year. Although he’s sure to be testing out some of his new songs, there’s no doubt his classics like Maggie May and Rhythm Of My Heart will ring through the arena. Tickets are $29 – $250.
