LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - British rocker Rod Stewart has signed a two year Las Vegas residency deal which will see him return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning August 24, promoters said on Tuesday.

Tickets for the first 18 concerts, titled "Rod Stewart: The Hits," go on sale on May 15.

Promoters AEG Live said the concert will be designed to give audiences an intimate feel with no fan more than 120 feet from the stage.

Stewart will perform rock and R&B favorites including "Maggie May," "You Wear it Well," "Hot Legs," "You're in My Heart" and "Some Guys Have All the Luck."

Stewart, 66, whose eighth child was born in February, recently wrapped "The Heart & Soul Tour" with Stevie Nicks. In 2010, he embarked on a European summer tour which continued with eight concerts at the 4,300-seat Colosseum last November.
