IT’S great news that Rod Stewart is appearing at the University of Bolton Stadium next June.

Rod, now 73, has sold millions of singles and albums around the world. His appearance in Bolton will no doubt attract thousands of fans and that means revenue for the town in hotel stays and catering venues as well as for the Stadium.

He comes here after The Killers and Little Mix made successful visits this Summer. Let’s hope that, like that other megastar of the same era Elton John who has successfully played at the Stadium, Rod gives us a concert to remember!
