Faces are dedicating their gig at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey tonight (July 23) to the late singer Amy Winehouse

The reformed rockers have paid tribute to the 27-year-old after she passed away at her London flat earlier today.

In a posting on guitarist Ronnie Wood's Twitter page, Twitter.com/ronniewoodshow, the band said Winehouse's death was a "sad loss of a talented friend".

"RIP Amy Winehouse. The Faces will be dedicating their gig at Hurtwood to Amy tonight," the post said.

Faces reunited in 2009 with Simply Red man Mick Hucknall standing in for original singer Rod Stewart on vocals.

Founding members Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan are also taking part in the reunion, with special guest Glen Matlock on bass.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast News this morning, Hucknall suggested that Stewart may well rejoin the band at some point in the future, and reiterated that he's standing in for the 66-year-old rather than replacing him permanently.

Following tonight's gig, the band are due to play at Fuji Rock Festival next weekend (30).
