Stewart hits a high note by of­fer­ing fans free beer

CityPress - - News - – Staff re­porter

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.
