10000 extra tickets for Rod Stewarts York date

The legend visits Portman Road on June 7 next year as part of a UK tour taking in football stadiums and outdoor venues.

Promoters Cuffe and Taylor say the demand for tickets has been massive since they went on sale last week and an extra date has already been added to the tour – though not in Ipswich – which will now kick off in Bristol.

We have worked with Rod on numerous occasions on single shows and full tours and it is safe to say this is the most incredible on sale we have ever experienced.

We are excited to be bringing Rod to what is a new venue for us as gig promoters and look forward to welcoming his fans to Ipswich in June.

This will be a fantastic concert and I would urge anyone who is still thinking about their purchase to act quickly so they can be sure of seeing this show.

Rod performed at Portman Road in the 1990s and 2007 so it will be great to see him return to the town after more than 10 years.

This will be Rods first UK tour in three years following the success of two sold-out tours in 2016 – The UK Hits Stadium Tour and the arena tour From Gasoline Alley to Another Country Hits.

It promises to be a memorable musical summer in Ipswich, with superstar Ed Sheeran also playing three nights at Chantry Park in August.

Eds dates are just a handful announced in the UK for next year, with the Ipswich gigs closing his tour.

Promoters say Rods 2019 shows promise to be filled with both classics and new hits in his dazzling signature style.

As one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with more than 200 million records sold worldwide, his performance will include show stopping classics from his glittering career as well as new album Blood Red Roses.

HUGE ticket demand has led to an extra 10,000 seats going on sale for Rod Stewart’s date in York.

It is the first time he has played in the city and concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor say the demand for tickets has been so big they have decided to open the Grandstand at York Racecourse to release the extra 10,000 tickets.

A temporary concert arena will be built adjacent to the Clocktower Enclosure for the all-seated event. Tickets from www.ticketmaster.co.uk with hospitality packages from York Racecourse.
