Rod Stewart ca. 1984
Rod Stewart is the leader in the clubhouse for this week's just announced shows. He's 66-years-old and is the former lead singer of the Faces and The Jeff Beck Group. People who know of his non-solo work appreciate it, but the majority of folks cherish the Brit for his solo career. 

While Stewart has some iconic songs to his name -- "Maggie May" and "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" to name a couple -- yet it's his 1984 masterpiece "Infatuation" that might just be his best. A criminally under-appreciated, vaguely stalker-y tune, "Infatuation" features perhaps Stewart's best music video. If we can't celebrate a man for his weirder, more eccentric songs fueled by the decade of excess, then what is there?

Joining Rod Stewart with just announced shows of their own are Stevie Nicks (on the same bill), Rush, Katy Perry and The Dodos.
