Rod Stewart’s “Live the Life” tour has been blazing its way across the globe, and on Oct. 14, the music legend will return to the Bryce Jordan Center. He last performed at the venue in its inaugural year, 1996.

Stewart’s latest album, “Time,” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts in the U.K., and the No. 7 spot in the U.S. The success should come as no surprise; he has been recording hits since the release of his third album, “Every Picture Tells a Story,” in 1971.

Many of his records have gone multiplatinum, he has received a number of Grammy Award nominations and, in 1994, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It is Stewart’s songs solidify him as a music legend. Two of his most famous hits, “Maggie May” and “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” are considered to be two top songs in music history.

Of “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy,” “We play this song now, we close the show with it. People absolutely love it,” Stewart told Katie Couric in an October 2012 interview.

On the heels of the release last year of “Rod: The Autobiography,” “Time” is Stewart’s first venture back into songwriting in 20 years.

“It was just one of those moments when all the stars collided,” he told BBC Breakfast in March. “It’s what I do best.”
