Rod Stewart And The Faces Announce One-Off Reunion

(Radio.com) The Faces are finally reuniting, but it will be for a one-off charity event. Rod Stewart and his two surviving bandmates - guitarist Ron Wood (whose day job these days is with the Rolling Stones) and drummer Kenney Jones - will perform a short set at a charity gig next month in England.

They're scheduled to play at the 2015 Prostate Cancer UK charity gig, dubbed "Rock 'n' Horsepower" at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey. The show will take place on September 5,

'This year is the 40th anniversary since The Faces parted ways, so it's about time we got together for a jam," Rod Stewart said. "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."

Wood said, 'Getting back on stage with the lads playing 'Stay with Me' and other favourites will be a blast and will make this a very special night. Being in The Faces was a mad and brilliant time for all of us and although we don't have Ronnie and Mac with us anymore this is our chance to remember them and say 'Had Me a Real Good Time.'"
