MONTREAL - Old crooner, perhaps. But one thing is certain, Rod Stewart is not at all its 66 spring.
Crossing at the Bell Centre Friday night with Stevie Nicks as part of their tour The Heart & Soul , the legendary British artist has rekindled his verve rock, far from being extinguished with her ​​jazzy turn at the turn of the century.

10, 668 spectators came to applaud the "serial dad, whose third wife, Penny Lancaster, recently gave birth to her eighth child. Perhaps her brood she acts as a fountain of youth ... Wherever Stewart draws its power: it has definitely sell! The incredible showman made ​​its debut on the huge stage of pristine white to the sound of Love Train , cover of The O'Jays. Only elements of color: his golden coat and her ladies, singers and musicians, in red robes.

The hair still tousled and voice still abraded, the singer was chained while languishing Tonight's The Night (Gonne Be Alright before pacing back atmosphere with Havin 'A Party .

Stevie Nicks joined Stewart for the interpretation of Passion and Young Turks , which at times pales next to the dynamic singer, who has multiplied the dance steps. The crooner hanging microphone The First Cut Is The Deepest quickly gave way to the rocker with Forever Young . Was it better to describe the chorus youthful energy and rock from the veteran as he passionately pigeait much in his repertoire than in other major artists? Probably not.

In more than five decades career, Stewart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has won 16 Grammy nominations and has sold over 250 million albums and parts worldwide. His latest album, Fly Me To The Moon ... The Great American Songbook, Volume V , published last year, was himself listened to more than one million copies.

The success he always sticks to the skin, and the singer has proved that he had lost none of his artistic charm in the year ending 2010 to top the charts.

There was a queen of rock ...

Stevie Nicks is not quite the queen of rock and roll it once was. The famous singer of Fleetwood Mac has delivered a performance static part of the concert, yet still captivate the crowd through his greatest hits, including Dreams , Gold Dust Women and Landslide .

Even the robust "Edge of Seventeen" was unable to fully resuscitate the rocker. Her voice is undeniably still biting, but the energy unfortunately not climbed as high levels.

The artist of 62 years, also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, will launch In Your Dreams May 3 next first album of new material in ten years, co-produced by Dave Stewart (ex-member of Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard .
