All the big moments from the headliner's day at Birmingham's Genting Arena
First, an announcement from last month...
...and also a something of a dress-code order!

stuf i did 2day
- said hi to rod stewart
- complimented harry styles trousers
- put glitter on my under eye lids
- didn't fall over
We managed to grab Rod for a quick portrait
Everything about this says: "I'm Rod Stewart, of course I'm going to close the show tonight in style."

Before he played, Rod gave an award to a "good north London girl"
...and you probably don't need to think too hard about who that was. Adele won Best British Artist (as well as Best Live Performance earlier in the night).
The venue was certainly excited to have Rod in the house
And then it was time for Rod to do his thing
He played two songs: Please, from his new album, Another County, and an old classic, Sailing.
