SIR Rod Stewart has dropped some of his biggest hits from gigs — as he fears offending the #MeToo movement.

The rocker, 74, is toning down the setlists for some of his lucrative private and corporate performances.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Back in the day, Rod was obviously a bit of a rogue and quite the ladies’ man.

“Songs and lyrics penned in the 1970s and 1980s, when attitudes to sex and courting were very different, do not reflect how he feels today.

“But just as the times have changed, so has Rod.

“Nowadays he’s a happily married man and father of eight — and he doesn’t feel it necessary to sing about doing the deed, or explicit female body parts.

“In the wake of the ongoing #MeToo movement, it all feels a bit outdated and he would hate to offend any young fans.”
