In addition to touring, his Las Vegas residency, "Rod Stewart: The Hits," at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has remained one of the hottest tickets and best reviewed shows since its launch in 2011. He’s earned countless of the industry’s highest awards, among them; two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the ASCAP Founders Award for songwriting, New York Times bestselling author, Grammy? Living Legend, and in 2016 he officially became “Sir Rod Stewart” after being knighted by Britain's Prince William at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and charity.
