Rod Stewart to headline Isle of Wight Festival 2017 By Lorraine White Monday, November 28, 2016

THE legendary Rod Stewart will headline Sunday at next year's Isle of Wight Festival.

In a UK festival exclusive, organisers this morning (Monday) confirmed Rod will close next year's Seaclose Park event.

Rod said: 'I have been very lucky to have played many of the world's finest venues and festivals — but never played the legendary Isle of Wight Festival. I am so excited to put that right. June can't come round soon enough."

Festival organiser John Giddings said: "I’ve wanted Rod Stewart to play at the festival for a number of years — he’s an incredible icon with a career that’s spanned over five decades so it’s impossible to not be a fan. On Sunday night he’ll bring an incredible energy to create an unforgettable moment."

Rod, whose best-known hits include Maggie MayFirst Cut in the Deepestand I Don't Want to Talk About It, is currently playing sell-out concerts across the country as part of his From Gasoline Alley to Another Country Hits tour.

Rod joins Saturday night headliners Arcade Fire on next year's festival bill.

The event takes place from June 8 to 11 and early bird tickets are currently on sale.

Tickets are available at a number of outlets, including the County Press Shop in Pyle Street, Newport.
