Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper Open Australian Tour In Perth

Rod Stewart’s long overdue Australian tour has final started. The tour originally planned for 2020 and the postponed and then postponed again due to Covid, has finally opened with the first show in Perth.

Rod’s set spans back to his 1971 and 1972 classic albums ‘Every Picture Tells A Story’ and ‘Never A Dull Moment’ with 1973’s final Faces album ‘Ooh La La’ also getting a nod with the title track.

The Rod Stewart setlist is mainly sticking with the classic years through to 1991’s ‘Vagabond Heart’ amd 1993’s live ‘Unplugged … and Seated”. He did dabble into 2018’s ‘Blood Red Roses’ with the blues over of ‘Rollin’ and Tumblin’ but mostly ignores the American Songbook albums and studio albums from 1995 to 2021 with the exception of the 2018 moment.

Cyndi Lauper has the shorter set but fills it with the hits you know centred around her first (and biggest) album ‘She’s So Unusual’. You are never more than one song away from a song you know in the Cyndi setlist.
