Piers Morgan fans were delighted to get a glimpse of him enjoying a special occasion after the 54-year-old shared a family snap from a Rod Stewart concert.
The Good Morning Britain host revealed his ‘Rod Squad’ – made up of him, his parents and sister – to his 600,000 Instagram followers as they experienced the A lister treatment at last night’s gig in Hove.
“My mother’s first EVER concert, a surprise arranged by my dad,” Piers noted.
“Absolutely brilliant show.
“What an entertainer, and his voice sounds better than ever.”
Thanking his dad for setting up the “fabulous” family night out, Piers went on to explain: “So six months ago, my dad suddenly announced he’d splashed out £1000 on four top seats to see Rod Stewart perform in Hove, Sussex.
“He’d never done this kind of thing before, but explained: ‘I want to see Rod before one of us dies and it’s too late…'”
Piers – who managed to get his pic taken with Rod backstage, with his dad also getting a smooch from the veteran rocker – went on to add: “The motto of this tale is live your dreams.. before it’s too late!”

Thousands of Piers’ followers approved the photo with ‘Likes’ – and were pleased to see the controversial ex newspaper editor ‘making memories’.
“Lovely. Great memories being made 🙌🏼,” commented celebrity pal Katie Piper.
“Love the fact you’re all together….nothing better than family x👍,” remarked another fan.
Another added: “How lovely and what a lovely memory to have together. Mothers are so precious 💞.”

So 6 months ago, my dad suddenly announced he’d splashed out £1000 on four top seats to see Rod Stewart perform in Hove, Sussex. He’d never done this kind of thing before, but explained: ‘I want to see Rod before one of us dies and it’s too late…’ Last night, he took me, my mum and my sister down to Hove and we watched a brilliant show. Then afterwards, Rod and my dad embraced backstage to complete a fabulous evening. The motto of this tale is live your dreams.. before it’s too late! Thanks Dad, and thanks @sirrodstewart !
And another commenter who was apparently at the same gig and spotted Piers in the crowd coming in for some affectionate attention added: “Enjoyed you @piersmorgan being mobbed for some kisses from many blondes! Very amusing! 😘😘.”
Fans were also quick to note how youthful Piers’ mum appears, with some also commenting on the family resemblance.
“Your mum looks amazing & doesn’t look old enough to be your mum 😘,” said one.
Another observer remarked: “Your mother looks like your sister @piersmorgan.”
A third added: “You look like your mum xx.”
