Ms. "Leather And Lace" meets Mr. "Hot Legs" on August 9 as Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks' current "Heart & Soul Tour" makes a stop in Houston at Toyota Center. The pair have been touring together the past few years in spurts. This is first time the duo has hit Houston in tandem, though.
Stewart was last in Houston back in July 2009 and Nicks was actually just in town last August on a solo tour up in the Woodlands, working behind her latest effort, In My Dreams.
Back in January Rod "The Mod" turned 67 years old, and by the looks of the way he still acts in public and in concert, he feels 27. Seriously, when we saw him in 2009 at The Woodlands, he was a force of sexuality to be reckoned with.
When he wasn't singing "Young Turks" or "Hot Legs" he was kicking soccer balls into the crowd, and making women of most every age swoon like mad.
Of course we wouldn't let him have a birthday without posting a blog featuring some racy, serpentine photos of him throughout his career. Someone out there enjoyed it more than they should have.
By the looks of this clip, they also team up to perform Nicks' "Leather and Lace" on this jaunt. According to reviews of past shows, the singers are co-headlining, and Nicks opens the evening with an hour before Stewart's lengthy set.
