Rod Stewart was slated to perform last night in Kansas City, Missouri with special guest Cyndi Lauper, but due to Stewart recovering from a strep throat, the show has been postponed.
“Gutted that strep throat has left me unable to perform this week in Kansas City and the Twin Cities,” Stewart said in a statement. “Thanks to the fans and promoters for their support and swift rescheduling — I look forward to seeing you in October.”
The show, which was supposed to take place on August 14 at the Sprint Center, has been moved to October 16. Tickets will be honored for the new date, and refunds will be available at point of purchase. This cancellation follows his show for tonight, August 15 in St. Paul, Minnesota, which was rescheduled for October 16. Fans reached out online to the singer, wishing him well.
Stewart’s next show, as of right now, is in Indianapolis, Indiana this Saturday. His U.S. tour will run through October, making stops in cities like San Francisco, Portland, and Denver before wrapping-up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on October 18. Then, Steward has a string of shows throughout late October, making sure to stop in previously postponed cities Boise and Billings before playing three shows in Canada. In November, he will head to Las Vegas for his residency Rod Steward: The Hits at Caesars Palace.
In addition to the multiple shows Stewart will play later this year, he is set to release his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses. The album is due September 28 via Republic Records and “highlights Stewart’s acclaimed songwriting roots.” Blood Red Roses will follow 2015’s Another Country and will feature his latest single, “Didn’t I.”
