One Night with Rod Stewart (#3007)
For three decades now, Rod Stewart has been an iconic force in the realm of popular music. Through a stellar catalog of classic songs -many of which he's written or co-written - he's earned his place in the pantheon of genuine musical legends. His infinitely expressive voice, sly wit and a truly electrifying stage presence have earned Rod Stewart a place in the hearts and lives of millions of fans worldwide. Now, for the first time, the legendary rock `n' roller performs some of his best-known hits and newfound "Great American Songbook" classics at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London. The special gala concert, hosted by Dame Edna, features Rod accompanied by the 60-piece BBC concert orchestra, the London Community Gospel Choir and his own band and backing singers. The concert also captures Rod with Chrissie Hynde, his former Faces mate, Ron Wood, and a stunning new musical discovery, Amy Belle. [73 minutes]
