In case you missed it, ROD STEWART was arrested for allegedly punching a security guard at a hotel on New Year's Eve, as NBC News reports. When denied entry to a private hotel event, the guard told police that a group, including Rod and his son Sean, "began to get loud and cause a scene and refused to follow his instructions and leave." Sean allegedly got in the guard's face, at which point the guard said he put his hand on Sean's chest and advised him to back up. The guard says Sean then shoved him, and Rod punched him near his left ribcage. Two other hotel employees witnessed the alleged altercation, and video footage shows Rod and Sean to be "the primary aggressors," according to an affidavit.

Assuming Stewart avoids jail time, he should be good to still go on his summer tour that was just announced with openers Cheap Trick. Now, we don't really expect anybody reading this to attend a Cheap Trick and Rod Stewart concert, but here is your reminder that Cheap Trick are also headlining some shows of their own on the East Coast in February, including the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (just outside NYC) on February 14, 2020.
