Rod Stewart will be supported by his daughter when he performs at Durham County Cricket club next month.

Ruby Stewart, who is one half of The Sisterhood, which also features Alyssa Bonagura, will warm up the crowds before Rod takes to the stage on Friday, June 9.

US-based The Sisterhood will join Rod as he performs hits from Gasoline Alley to Another Country when he plays Durham and Shrewsbury, his only two UK headline dates this year.

The pair supported Rod throughout his UK Hits stadium tour last year.

He said: “There are not many fathers who can say they go to work with their daughter, so it will be an absolute pleasure to welcome Ruby back out on the road again with me this summer.

“We had a great time last year and I am sure the crowds in Shrewsbury and Durham will be delighted when they see The Sisterhood.”

Rod Stewart’s fully-seated concerts at Shrewsbury and Durham are being presented by Cuffe and Taylor who promoted Rod’s eight-date sell-out UK Hits Tour in 2016.

Director Peter Taylor said: “We’re delighted to have The Sisterhood joining us again this year.

“They went down a storm with the audiences last summer and I am sure they will do so again.

“Having Rod’s own daughter on the bill only adds to the experience for fans and makes the shows that little bit more special.”

His Durham date is set to include new tracks, as well as classic tracks from his career spanning five decades including Maggie May, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, Baby Jane, The First Cut is the Deepest and I Don’t Want to Talk About it.

Concert-goers will also be treated to tracks from his most recently released critically acclaimed platinum album Another Country, which debuted at Number Two.
