A Rod Stewart super fan “burst into tears” at the news she had been picked to present her hero with an award in person.
Helen Gibson, from Northfield in Aberdeen, thought she had “all the luck” when she was selected to attend the rock star’s recent gig at the SSE Hydro arena in Glasgow.
She was chosen out of thousands of fans to present the award to the Maggie May legend’s concert.
The “ultimate performer award” is the first of its kind and was presented backstage before the 74-year-old launched into a set-list packed with hits in Glasgow.
After being surprised by her son with tickets just days before the show, Mrs Gibson wiped away tears of joy as she was given the news she would be meeting her lifelong idol to present the award.
The Northfield resident said: “I can’t quite believe what’s happened.
“Rod’s music has been such a big part of my life so, to get the chance to meet him and present this special award, is just a dream come true.
“I was shaking a little but Rod was really nice and calmed me down right away.
“His shows are always amazing.”
Though they may not get a chance to get as up close and personal with the singer as Ms Gibson, thousands of north-east fans are looking forward to seeing Stewart take to the stage in Aberdeen tomorrow at the P&J Live arena.
