Rod Stewart, Boz Scaggs to ‘live the life’ at Penn State venue

Rod Stewart will bring his critically acclaimed “Live the Life” tour to the Bryce Jordan Center at 7 p.m. Oct. 14. Legendary artist Boz Scaggs will open the show.

In a career spanning more than five decades, Stewart has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide with countless chart-topping hits and industry accolades — including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In May, Stewart returned to his songwriting roots with the release his album “Time.” The album, his first rock album in a dozen years, entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist, and in the US, it marked Stewart’s highest-charting album of original material since 1979.

On Sept. 3, Stewart released “Rarities,” a 24-track collection that includes previously unreleased music including his BBC Radio One Live performances of “Maggie May” and “Country Comfort” with Faces as well as alternative versions, B-sides and unexpected covers.

Stewart last thrilled State College fans in 1996, when he performed at the Bryce Jordan Center during its inaugural year.
