Rod Stewart will make a triumphant return to his home country for a stadium tour in 2019. The legendary British rocker has confirmed a string of tour dates in the U.K. which will take place from late May through mid-June.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer unveiled the big news Sept. 14 via Twitter and other social media ahead of the highly anticipated release of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses.  The album drops Sept. 28 via Republic/UMG. Dubbed “Rod Stewart Live In Concert,” the tour will be the ex-Faces star's first U.K. visit in three years.

The fun begins May 31 in Southhampton, England, at St Mary's Stadium. Sir Rod and company will rock several soccer stadiums and outdoor venues across England and Scotland with the 2019 U.K. trek wrapping up June 15 in Bolton, England, at University of Bolton Stadium.

Select presales will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 9:00 a.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, Sept. 21 at 9:00 am. local time. Grab your Rod Stewart tickets at AXS.

Rod The Mod will receive his own Sirius XM radio channel to promote Blood Red Roses, beginning Sept. 20. The Grammy winner recently released the second single  “Look in Her Eyes,” which is the follow up to the album's lead release “Didn't I.”

Blood Red Roses is available for preorder here in standard and deluxe editions in CD, vinyl and streaming formats. Check out the official audio for the new single “Look in Her Eyes” above.

The “Maggie May” hitmaker wrapped up his 2019 U.S. summer tour with Cyndi Lauper on Sept. 1 in Seattle, but will return for a U.S. fall tour, which kicks off Oct. 14 in St Paul, MN,  at Xcel Energy Center and concludes Nov. 3 in Reno, NV, at Event Center.
