A family owned and operated business in downtown St. John's got an unexpected visit from a rock and roll superstar Saturday afternoon - and that superstar got unexpectedly fitted for a sealskin coat.
U.K. musician Rod Stewart, who's in town to headline the Confederation Hill Music Festival Saturday night, stopped by Always in Vogue on Water Street.

Rod Stewart headlined Saturday's concert, along with the Goo Goo Dolls, Sass Jordan, The Navigators and Timber. Due to issues with flights and weather, Blue Rodeo was unable to make it to the concert.
Ticket sales were limited to 18,000, but there's no official attendance count for Saturday night's show.
As could have been predicted, Rod Stewart, has faced some criticism from the anti-sealing people for trying on the sealskin coat.

I have only quoted part of the article.
I recommended reading the whole article & comments.
Before performing on Saturday night, the British singer was fitted for the coat at Always in Vogue on Water Street.
The move garnered praise from local residents, and on the flip side, an attack from anti-sealing activist Paul Watson.
On Tuesday, a post to Stewart's Facebook account said he was not being fitted for a sealskin jacket and had no intention of purchasing the item.
"Rod regrets that he didn't check what the jacket was made of, but was so grateful for the shop's help, he did not," the post read.
"Rod has since been very upset to learn that the shop has been using this image as an advertisement for an industry that he does not know much about and certainly does not support."
The post claims a store clerk at Always in Vogue asked Stewart to pose with one of the store's jackets before leaving.
Stewart also tweeted that he was "enraged to learn that an image of me has been misused for something I do not support."
'He knew what he was putting on'
Always in Vogue owner Darren Halloran said Stewart knew the coat was made of sealskin when he tried it on.
"He knew what he was putting on. Whether he knew the extent of what comes with putting on a sealskin jacket I don't know. I never meant for that to be the situation. But he knew what he was putting on," he said.
