Old pals Rod Stewart and Sir Elton John are quietly plotting a joint tour after hitting the road separately with Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel in recent years.

The two friends performed together after Stewart presented Elton with his Brit Icon Award at a ceremony in London earlier this week and that appears to have sparked fresh talk about hitting the road together.

Stewart says, “We did do a duet on one of my Great American Songbook albums, but really I’d love to – before we’re both in wheelchairs – go out and do a tour together.”

In the meantime, Stewart is preparing for a U.S. tour later this year with Traffic and Humble Pie star Steve Winwood, and he recently hinted at plans to hit the road on a joint reunion tour with his old bands the Faces and Jeff Beck Group.
