Photo gallery: Rod Stewart’s Norwich gig rocks Carrow Road
Rod Stewart sang his way into the night and into the hearts of a new Carrow Road faithful.
In a spectacular show of more than two hours the Scottish rocker raced through some of his best known hits and a selection of classics from other artists.
While not a sell-out, the adoring crowd of thousand were on their feet throughout the show, singing along and dancing in the aisles.
There was a huge cheer as a nervous Canaries boss Paul Lambert took to the stage to introduce his fellow Scot, who duly responded by shouting: 'Welcome to the Premiership.'
For songs such as Baby Jane to You Wear it Well and Tonight's the Night, through to covers of Handbags and Gladrags and Sweet Little Rock and Roller and soul classics including Love Train, Rod was in fine voice.

And the music continued apace as night fell with Twisting the Night Away.

Switching from a bright orange jacket and one of tartan, Rod wowed the audience when he donned a stylish suit of purple.
It was a great show from one of pop's great performers.
