Rod Stewart is to join old pal Elton John in Las Vegas for a lengthy concert residency.
The Hot Legs hitmaker will join Elton and Celine Dion at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, beginning a two-year run of shows in August.

In a statement, Stewart says the show will be “90 per cent songs that people know”.

And he tells he’ll be turning his back on his recent standards and soul recordings for what will be “a rock ‘n’ roll show”.

He adds, “We’ll try to give the people what they want, which are the songs that made me famous, plus a few surprises. There won’t be any magicians or midgets, just a good rock show.”

Stewart sold out the Colosseum in November when he performed eight nights at the venue.
