ROD Stewart fans have today been told to “fear not” as their rock idol is on schedule to perform in Ipswich as planned despite having a freak fall.

Rocker Stewart, 62, had to have 10 stitches in his leg after he fell during a rain-soaked gig at the City of Manchester Stadium on Thursday night.

He carried on with the show but was treated by a doctor yesterday and missed the 02 Silver Clef Awards in London, where he was due to receive the Icon award.

However Live Nation, the promoters of his tour, has allayed fears that the singer would not be able to make his concert at Portman Road on Tuesday.
