Rod Stewart to perform in Malta

Veteran singer Rod Stewart, who has wished every Maltese mother Happy Mother's Day, will perform in concert at the Floriana granaries on August 3.

The Malta show will include the performance of his greatest hits, still fresh in the minds of many.

Aged 65, the British songwriter, famed for his distinctive raspy voice, is expected to appeal mostly to the 35-plus age bracket.

With powerful sell-out classic rock hits like Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, Tonight's the Night, and Downtown Train, Stewart is likely to strike the right chord.

Fans can expect to hear selections from his recently released Soulbook, which in Rolling Stone magazine he is quoted as describing as the album he has waited his whole lifetime to record.

Stewart has achieved numerous solo hit singles mostly in the UK, where he garnered six consecutive number one albums and 62 hit singles. Selling over 130 million records worldwide, he is considered to be one of the best-selling British singers of all time.

He is also known for his success with the ladies, surviving three marriages and fathering seven children - the oldest born in 1964 and the youngest five years ago - with five women, mostly models.

Concert organiser Roy Steer said the contract was finally signed last week after contact was first made with the singer last October.

Stewart is yet another name that should be spicing up the summer's entertainment programme, which includes performances by Elton John, Joseph Calleja with Dionne Warwick and Claudio Baglioni, and the Isle of MTV concert.

The Floriana venue was considered to be ideal, chosen to "show off its local character".

Stewart should be arriving on his private jet from Dublin and is being accompanied by a 30-strong entourage.

Tickets for the concert are on sale from tomorrow from Vodafone outlets, Exotique, Agenda Bookshops and
