Stewart hits a high note by offering fans free beer
Scottish singer Rod Stewart got more than he bargained for when he offered fans a free drink after his show.
Britain’s Independent newspaper reported that Stewart, who had completed four years of a long run of performances at Las Vegas’ Colosseum theatre at the Caesars Palace Hotel, promised to buy fans a drink if they attended his show.
He tweeted that he would buy anyone seated in Gordon Ramsey’s Pub in Caesars Palace that night a free beer. But to qualify they had to wear the kit belonging to the Celtic football club.
Stewart perhaps didn’t think so many people would have Celtic T-shirts in the US city, but there were so many fans waiting for their beers that he had to change the rules – insisting they show their concert tickets first before any free beers were bought.
Although the Independent did not report what the free round of beers cost him, it did report that Stewart has a new album out in time for Christmas this year, so he’ll probably be able to afford the drinks bill.
