Rod Stewart has rescheduled the springtime dates of his "Live the Life" tour with Steve Winwood, pushing them instead to the fall to accommodate his forthcoming album.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who recently added more dates to his Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, will now hit the U.S. tour trail with Winwood in mid-October, beginning with an Oct. 17 gig in Greensboro, NC. The entire 10-date arena tour has been rescheduled, and tickets for the original April shows will be honored, according to a press release.

The Las Vegas residency will not be affected by the schedule changes.

According to a recent post at Stewart's website the schedule adjustments were made to allow the musician to finish the production and begin promotion of his first original studio album of rock music in nearly 20 years.

"I produced it myself. It's all finished, mixed, everything," Stewart told target="new">Billboard in October. "Just a good, old-fashioned Rod Stewart album (with) a lot of mandolin and acoustic (guitar) and fiddles and good storytelling, I believe, too."

No word yet on what the album is titled or exactly when it will hit retailers.

Stewart most recently released "Merry Christmas, Baby," his first Christmas album, in late October. The holiday collection, which landed at No. 3 on The Billboard 200, sold more than a million copies in less than a month.
