Produced by Live Nation the tour will be Stewart’s first in four years and promises an unprecedented night of iconic hit songs from one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

In addition to world tours and his Las Vegas residency, Stewart’s rekindled songwriting success has found widespread commercial success starting with the 2013 release of Time, followed by Another Country (2015), Blood Red Roses (2018), and his latest, The Tears of Hercules in 2021. This tour will be the first opportunity for fans to experience live performances of a song or two from his new album, The Tears of Hercules.
