Sometimes in Vegas you go to work as usual, and by the afternoon you’re outside in the sweltering heat, standing around the over-the-top Garden of the Gods pool surrounded by ridiculous tourists waving paper fans. Don’t forget the people dressed in togas up on the balcony. It was a welcoming party fit for an icon! When Rod Stewart arrived, synchronized swimmers dove into the pool kicking up their legs as the song “Hot Legs” blared. They don’t call us Entertainment Capitol of the World for nothing!
Rod Stewart’s Stage Number One: Garden of the Gods Pool
His arrival outfit: a green and white track suit (some soccer thing)
Stage two: the Colosseum, after a costume change
It was an awesome night!! I was worried that “Forever Young” would be the only song I knew, but that was ridiculous. The entire crowd was singing along to every number. Rod Stewart owns the stage — he’s electric. The Colosseum is absolutely massive. It used to take pint-sized Bette Midler a lips-shaped sofa on wheels to get across it. Not only did he leave not a square foot of stage untouched, but he kicked soccer balls into the highest balconies. Rod must be in the best shape of his life. His voice is unique and just incredible, and he danced the night away. It really was an excellent show.
Welcome to Vegas, Rod Stewart!
