Today’s Blimp Time-Hop

Rod '8136 years ago today, Rod Stewart made his first appearance at the Civic Center in Portland. This tour was in support of his album, Tonight I’m Yours. The album featured the title track and Young Turks, showcasing his new direction into 80s synth-pop.

He was getting a lot of airplay on MTV with his embracing of the new wave trend, and plenty of spins BLM too. Rod was everywhere and the show was sold out on April 5, 1982.

Rod gave Blimpville a little bit everything in his catalog, from Jeff Beck era stuff to Faces and ballads to dance floor jams like Do Ya Think I’m Sexy and Passion along with the new songs. This was the first of 5 Rod Stewart concerts over the years in Maine, with 4 at the CCCC and a show in OOB on August 8, 1989.

 

Rod’s got moves and the greatest spikey mullet ever in this appearance on American Bandstand!
