Mission Concert 2020 ~ Rod Stewart

Event Time: No time set / Event Location: Mission Estate Winery 198 Church Road, Napier

The Mission Concert’s favourite artist, SIR ROD STEWART, returns this November, playing at Mission Estate Winery on Saturday, November 14

The performance will be part of his The Hits! world tour — a 50-year celebration of his stellar career, a career highlighted by extraordinary performances at The Mission in 2005 and 2012.

The Mission is a venue that Rod loves and that love affair is most definitely mutual. With his tickets selling out in record times, concertgoers have declared his past performances as “the best ever”. “The Mission winery is one of my favourite venues in the world,” said Sir Rod.

Mission Concert promoter James Erskine, Chairman of Sports and Entertainment Limited, says he’s beyond thrilled that Rod is returning to the Mission Concert.

“We’ve had such a wonderful relationship with Rod over the years so it’s an honour to be included in this milestone tour. We can’t wait to see him again. Rod has sold more tickets than any other artist in the Mission’s 28 years. It will be a night not to miss.”

Phil Hocquard, Chairman of the Mission, added: “We are excited to have Rod back. The Mission is a unique and special place to watch concerts and people love coming here.”

The Mission Concert will be Rod’s only North Island performance.
