Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper Announce Australian Dates for 2023

Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper will team up for an Australian tour in 2023 for Live Nation at the arena shows and A Day On The Green for the winery shows.

Rod was due to tour Australia in 2020 but they fell over with Covid lockdowns.

Now the tour is back on, Cyndi Lauper is special guest and Jon Stevens named as opening act.

While Stewart hasn’t announced he is retiring, this might just be his last tour of Australia. On US radio this week he said, “I’m 77. I can’t go on the road like I used to. I’m going to stop rock-and-roll touring and just play in folk clubs with a guitar. I want to do something different. It feels like an end of an era. All things must come to an end.”

Stewart was active during Covid working on a new album. His 32nd solo album ‘The Tears of Hercules’ was released in November 2021.
