Darrell Indulges In A Bit Of Rod.

The last time we all saw Rod Stewart was at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, it was Darrell’s special treat, but, it’s hard to believe that it was just over three years ago now? It was a wonderful, wonderful night, something we will never forget, but in his heart, for an aficionado like Darrell, it wasn’t quite as good, perhaps, as a “proper” Rod concert.

….. and ever since then Darrell has been patiently waiting for his gravelly voiced hero to tour again so he could see him for the umpteenth time, he hasn’t missed a UK tour yet!NIA BhamAnd to celebrate Darrell threw caution to the wind, going the whole hog by treating himself to a night at The Holiday Inn, with continental breakfast included, well, it would be rude not to, wouldn’t it?

Sounds a wonderful show. Next time Darrell could try contacting Rod to ask if he could join him on stage ...???
