Legendary rock 'n' roller Rod Stewart, who has sold some 100 million records since being born in North London in 1945, will be performing at Washington's Verizon Center on the opening night of the London Olympics, July 27. (If you're lucky, his show will be more "Every Picture Tells a Story" than "Do ya Think I'm Sexy?") True, his concert-mate, Stevie Nicks, is an Arizona girl. But even she has some serious Brit cred: her band, Fleetwood Mac, started in England.
