Celtic-folk and Americana band Johnny Mac and the Faithful warmed up the audience before Rod Stewart performed on his UK outdoor & arena tour last summer & winter!

The Glasgow-based band were invited to perform at all shows for the Rod Stewart Live in Concert tour in 2019

Johnny Mac and the Faithful previously opened for Rod at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro in 2017 at a concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of Celtic Football Club’s 1967 European Cup victory. A friendship was born from that and Rod invited frontman John McLaughlin to co-write the song Julia which appears on his latest number one album Blood Red Roses.
