Frontman Paul Metcalfe is incredible as Rod and captures all the excitement, energy and charisma of the legendary performer including the infamous moves, showmanship, and sense of fun that have made Rod one of the most successful artists of all time. The first half of the show features hits from Rod's early career such as ‘Handbags & Gladrags’ along with favourites like ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Twisting The Night Away’, interwoven with some interesting and amusing anecdotes, taking you on a musical journey through Rod's career over the last five decades.
The second half is one big party including all Rod’s big hits such as ‘Maggie May’, ‘Baby Jane’, ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy’, ‘Sailing’, ‘Tonight’s The Night’ and ‘You’re in my Heart.’
This authentic production, now in its fourth year, includes a stunning stage set, a spectacular light show, and an impeccable live band.
I've seen some 'Rods' in my time, but Paul is the best one I've ever seen.- Don Stewart (Rod Stewart's brother)
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Paul's voice and mannerisms were the closest I've ever seen to Rod himself.- Mary Cady (Rod Stewart's Sister)
The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise. In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town!
The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491. Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
