The show charts Rod’s career chronologically and highlights some of the significant strokes of luck, which helped the rock legend during his stellar career. The show also features songs from Rod Stewart’s time with The Faces as well as a full concert production in the second half of the show with classic hits including ‘Maggie May’, ‘Baby Jane’ and ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy’.

Think Floyd is on Thursday, June 21 (7.30pm).

Spokeswoman Lorraine McGregor said: “This extraordinary band, dubbed the definitive Pink Floyd experience, are renowned for their stunning celebration of the music of one of the world’s greatest bands. In a recent interview on LBC the drummer commended Think Floyd and rather generously called them ‘better than we are’.”

Also coming up is Classic Clapton Unplugged on Saturday, June 23 (7.30pm).

Lorraine said: “Acoustic duo Mike Hall and Adam Howells from the world’s number one Eric Clapton tribute band will be making a welcome return to The Hawth Studio.

“Mike not only looks like Eric, he sings and plays guitar like him. The band was formed in 1985 in Newcastle. In the past 33 years they have become something of a rock institution.

“Classic Clapton Unplugged will include many of the best tracks from Eric’s Unplugged album, including ‘Tears in Heaven’, ‘Running on Faith’, ‘Old Love’ and ‘Layla’. The concert will also feature new acoustic versions of other Clapton Classics such as ‘Wonderful Tonight’ and ‘Lay Down Sally’. The whole of Clapton’s illustrious career will be covered including Cream, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Blind Faith, The Yardbirds, Derek and The Dominos and the solo years.”
