Some Guys Have All The Luck – The Rod Stewart Story
  • West End

50 years on from the release of Rod's first album, Some Guys Have All The Luck is back in theatres in 2019 with a brand new show, bringing to the stage a fantastic live concert celebration of one of rock's greatest icons.

Frontman Paul Metcalfe is incredible as Rod, capturing 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 artistes of all time.

The first half of the show features hits from Rod's earlier career such as Handbags & Gladrags and You Wear It Well along with some Faces' favourites like Stay With Me and Twisting The Night Away, all interwoven with some interesting and amusing anecdotes, taking you on a musical journey through Rod's career over the last five decades - from humble beginnings to superstardom.

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, The First Cut Is The Deepest and You're In My Heart.

This authentic production includes a stunning stage set, spectacular light show, impeccable live band and stage-wide projections.

"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)

- What's Good To Do

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
