Rod Stewart to Reunite with Faces at Charity Show
The Faces will be among the artists performing at the Rock ‘n’ Horsepower at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey on September 5. The band will reunite for a short set in support of prostate cancer, including Rod Stewart, who will join Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones (keyboardist Ian McLagan passed away last year and Ronnie Lane died in 1997) for a rare performance.
On the reunion, Stewart said, “This year is the 40th anniversary since The Faces parted ways so it’s about time we got together for a jam! Being in The Faces back in the day was a whirlwind of madness but my God, it was beyond brilliant. We are pleased to be able to support Prostate Cancer UK.”
Jones added, “The years of The Faces were some of the best of my life and I’m so proud to have been a part of the band. I’m unbelievably excited to have the opportunity to get up on stage with Rod and Ronnie again. Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan will be dearly missed but we’ll raise a glass to them.”
As Consequence of Sound notes, Stewart was initially slated to reunite with the band for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction but was forced to bow out after coming down with an illness.
