Rod Stewart will stream a live concert on Instagram from his Florida home tonight to raise awareness about coronavirus.
The superstar crooner is teaming up with daughter Ruby to host the #Togetherathome event, which kicks off at 7pm UK time.
The concert is being organised in partnership with the World Health Organisation and the Global Citizen movement.
Sir Rod says he wants to raise awareness for “an excellent cause” and help fans “learn about actions you can take to help slow the spread” of the deadly bug.
The 75-year-old said: “While at home, @rubystewart and I are partnering with @WHO and @GlblCtzn for a mini concert on Instagram Live. Tune in here for an excellent cause, and learn about actions you can take to help slow the spread of #coronavirus at the link in bio. ”
The dad-of-nine revealed at the end of March that he is “hunkered down” in Palm Beach in self-isolation amid the health crisis with wife Penny Lancaster and their sons Alastair and Aiden, as well as Sean, from his first marriage to Alana Stewart.
Rod’s singer daughter Ruby, from his relationship with Kelly Emberg, is also with her family in quarantine and will be co-fronting the show.

Last week Rod and his brood brood sent out a message while in lockdown at the star’s Florida pad, praising the NHS and frontline staff risking their lives here in the UK.
He said: “Our family want to say a huge thank you to everyone working in the NHS as well as to all the health care workers and emergency services that are helping keep Britain’s families safe in these extremely difficult times.”
Rod is the latest celebrity to do his bit for the fight against Covid-19, with a raft of famous faces using social media keep fans inspired, entertained and educated.
