“I couldn’t be more excited,” Stewart said in a statement. “Eighteen of my favorite cities and I don’t intend to disappoint any of my fans -- at least not the paying ones.”

Tickets go on sale Saturday. Bryan Adams will open the first seven dates.

Stewart will be promoting his 2007 album “Still the Same: Great Rock Classics of Our Time,” which has sold 710,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
