Rockstar Sir Rod Stewart enjoys a night in Coventry supporting the Blaze and son Liam

ROCKSTAR Sir Rod Stewart enjoyed a night out in Coventry on Sunday to cheer on son Liam Stewart who was playing for the Coventry Blaze in their Elite League Ice Hockey tie against Nottingham.

The 71-year-old, famous worldwide for performing songs including I Don’t Wanna Talk About It, Maggie May and Baby Jane, attending Sunday’s game with wife Penny Lancaster and children Alastair and Aiden.

In full voice, Sir Rod proved himself to be quite a Blaze fan as he witnessed Danny Stewart’s side score twice in the opening 22 minutes of the game.

Blaze’s two goal lead quickly vanished though as the Panthers pulled level, though Swede Robin Bergman saved the day as the Blaze won in sudden death penalty shots.

A Coventry Blaze club spokesman said: “We were delighted to welcome Sir Rod and his family to the Skydome.

“He seemed to have a great night cheering Liam and the rest of the guys on to a memorable victory.

“It was an exciting night and Sir Rod being with us just topped it off.”

Coventry Blaze next take to the Skydome ice surface on Sunday night as they take on rivals Sheffield Steelers at 5.15pm.
