Rod Stewart kicked off his U.S. summer tour with a two-night stand from June 25 – June 26 in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer treated fans on both nights to a slightly revamped 22-song setlist, packed with greatest hits and beloved album tracks, including his 1986 single “Infatuation.”
