Rod Stewart has just announced a 21-date North American tour with special guest act Cheap Trick.

The classic rock pairing kicks things off in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio on July 21 and the tour, announced on Twitter Tuesday morning, will run until Sept. 5, where it will conclude in Chicago.

For its second stop, Stewart, 74, and Cheap Trick will play at Budweiser Stage in Toronto — serving as the sole Canadian tour date.

It’s unclear if either act will release new music ahead of the tour.

The Maggie May singer released his last album, Blood Red Roses, in 2018, while the Surrender rockers’ last album, Christmas Christmas, came in late 2017.
