Even though the rocker turned 66 in January, he is not ready to retire. He kicks off the first 18 concerts in a two-year deal at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Aug. 24. The London-born music icon says his rock 'n' roll show, Rod Stewart: The Hits, will feature well-known songs from his five-decade-long career.

Next, Stewart will collaborate with guitar great Jeff Beck for a blues-based album. "It won't be strictly blues," he clarifies. "It will be 70 percent blues. People like Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed, but we've updated the songs to make them new."
