Fans of Sir Rod Stewart gathered in force to celebrate the music of their hero.
 

 

 

Hundreds turned out donning dodgy blonde wigs and tartan as The Rod Stewart Fan Club Big Weekend returned for its annual get together.

The star’s own sister turned up as special guest to support the 17th annual event, which took place at the The Saddlers Club for the seventh consecutive year.

All three events last Friday, Saturday and Sunday sold out as more than 300 fans packed into the venue.

Fans from Walsall to Mexico, with a shared passion for the music of the 72-year-old former Faces front man, sang along to hits including Maggie May, Stay With Me, Sailing and Some Guys Have All The Luck.

 

Dave Reddy, who co-organised the annual event, said: “We had three great live acts.

“Obviously we have people locally and being based in a central location encourages people to come from across the country.

“We also had people from Mexico, Germany and USA come too.

“Previously, we’ve had people from Australia and Japan come as well – it’s a huge event.” The 33 year old paid tribute to live acts Martie Peters, Creegan & Co and Stan Terry. He added: “They were all great and I think Creegan & Co were the highlight, they brought the house down as they always do.”

 

Jim Creegan, former co-writer and guitarist with Rod Stewart, was accompanied by former X Factor semi-finalist, Ben Mills. The act has received praise from the Sir Rod himself.

Fans young and old turned out to the weekend extravaganza and Mr Reddy, who has lost count of the amount of times he has seen Stewart, says it is the fans who motivate him to put on the event each year. He said: “I’m from Blackpool but it was at the NEC when I first saw him when I was seven with my parents.

“I’ve remained a huge fan ever since and the fan club is really like one big family

 

“Some people come on the Friday not knowing anyone and by the end they’ve make long term friendships, that’s what it’s all about.”

Mary Cady, Rod Stewart’s sister, turned up in support of the meeting, which has raised thousands of pounds for charity.

As a regular attendee of the meetings, she got on stage to pick out various raffle winners. More than £100,000 has been raised for various charities over the years with proceeds from 2017’s event going to Parkinson’s UK.
