Rod Stewart is moving out of the Great American Songbook and onto the big screen.
Stewart’s new album, “Still the Same ... Great Rock Classics of Our Time,” his first rock ’n’ roll album in eight years, comes out Tuesday. He’ll celebrate with “Rod Stewart Rocks Times Square,” a closed-circuit concert broadcast to 117 theaters around the country at 9:30 p.m. Monday (October 9th). Locally the concert will be shown at the Regal Commerce Township Stadium 14, 3033 Springvale Drive, Walled Lake, and at the AMC Livonia 20, 19500 Haggerty Road. Detroit rock city denizens don’t have to be told that “Still the Same’s” title comes from Bob Seger’s 1978 single, his second Top 5 hit — which is one of the songs Stewart covers on the album.
“When (‘Still the Same’) fi rst came out I thought, ‘Oh, I’d love to sing that song,” says Stewart, who also included songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and more. “It’s just a great song to sing — wonderful set of lyrics, good melody, good groove.”
Admission to “Rod Stewart Rocks Times Square” is $15. Visit
