Rod Stewart offers troops tickets

Rod Stewart is offering free tickets to UK troops

Rock Star Rod Stewart is showing his support for the charity Tickets For Troops by offering free tickets for his summer tour to members of the Armed Forces and their families, it has been announced.

Soldiers, sailors, airmen and their families will have the chance to see the legendary hitmaker belting out chart toppers like Maggie May, Do Ya Think I'm Sexy and Tonight's the Night at the Sheffield Arena on July 20 and at the Glasgow SECC on July 26.

Tickets For Troops was set up last year to provide top tickets to sporting, musical and entertainment events to troops and their families.

Patrons of charity include the Prime Minister's wife Samantha Cameron, Dame Vera Lynn, Andrew Flintoff, Gavin Hastings and Joss Stone.

Mrs Cameron said: "Tickets For Troops has been a massive success in terms of recognising the work and courage of our troops but it has also rewarded those families whose support and love is crucial in the frontline.

"I am delighted and privileged to support such an excellent cause."

Members of the Armed Forces and veterans medically discharged since 2001 should register for top tickets at www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk
