STV brings Rod Stewart exclusive to Scottish viewers

STV have successfully secured the worldwide premiere of music legend Rod Stewart’s festive show on Saturday, 8th December – a day before viewers in the rest of the UK.
 
Against the stunning backdrop of Stirling Castle, Rod Stewart’s Christmas is a celebration of festive classics with superstar singers performing alongside Rod.
 
Viewers will have the chance to see the Grammy-Award winner sing Christmas favourites with the sensational Kylie Minogue, as well as international superstar Michael Buble. Scotland’s very own violin prodigy Nicola Benedetti also performs with the legendary Rod Stewart.
 
The evening is brought to a fantastic finale with Rod wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year accompanied by choirs, pipes, drums and a stunning firework display.  
 
Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV, said: “Rod Stewart’s festive show is a celebration of all things Scottish which is why it is so important that we bring the programme to viewers in Scotland first.  The 75 minute show is definitely a highlight in our seasonal schedule and it is fantastic that we are able to show it as a worldwide exclusive.”
