Rod Stewart (Maggie) May very well be last gig at AECC
Friday September 14th 2018 at 8:26 AM
Rod Stewart has been announced as possibly the last ever concert at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
The 73-year-old could bring down the curtain on the Bridge of Don venue as part of a UK tour next summer, playing the Granite City for a first time in seven years.
The June 12 gig – outdoors at the AECC – will come only months before the new AECC, the Events Complex Aberdeen, is expected to open.
An exact opening date for TECA is as yet unclear, with the only guarantee so far that it will open in time for Offshore Europe 2019 in September.
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions and Marketing at AECC, said: “We’re honoured and very excited to welcome Rod Stewart back to Aberdeen, this will possibly be our last gig before we move to our new venue, TECA, in summer 2019.
“Rod was one of our first ever gigs here at AECC back in 1991 and now he’ll be one of the last!
“Having last played Pittodrie in 2011 we’re sure everyone’s ready to give our honorary ‘Scottish Rock Royalty’ a warm welcome and help us end on a high!”
The tour – the tartan-daft singer’s first in the UK for three years – has been announced alongside a new album.
Tickets go on sale at 9am 21st September from www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Pre-sale tickets will go on sale at 9am Wednesday September 19th and can be accessed by pre-ordering Rod’s new album ‘Blood Red Roses’ from www.HMV.com.
