Some Guys Have All the Luck – The Rod Stewart Story
Telling the story of Rod Stewart’s life and career, Some Guys Have All the Luck stars Paul Metcalfe and features a live band.

The first half of the show walks the audience through Stewart’s early career in the 1960s through his success in the 1970s. Audiences will hear songs from his early days, including “In a Broken Dream,” “Handbangs & Gladrags,” “Ohh La La,” “Stay With Me,” and “Wear It Well.”
The second half of the production features a spectacular Rod Stewart concert, which splendidly replicates his stage presence and showmanship. Audiences will hear his top hits, including “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy,” “The First Cut is the Deepest,” “Tonight’s the Night,” “Baby Jane,” “Sailing,” “Maggie May,” “You’re In My Heart,” and more.
Viewers say they’ve never seen an imitator mimic Stewart’s style so effectively.
Paul does an amazing job of imitating Rod Stewart’s stage presence and energy. Every show ends with dancing in the aisles, and Paul kicks a slew of signed footballs into the crowd.
