Faces to reunite for gig – without Rod Stewart

Band to get together for London show

Faces are set to reunite for a London gig next month – without frontman Rod Stewart.

Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagen and Kenny Jones will get together to play at the Royal Albert Hall on October 25. The show will be in aid of the Performing Right Society’s Music Members’ Benevolent Fund and will also feature Simply Red‘s Mick Hucknall, former Spice Girl Mel C and Kiki Dee, reports BBC News.

Wood did not give the reason for Stewart‘s absence, but mentioned the late band member Ronnie Lane. “This will be so special for us, staging a reunion for such a wonderful and prestigious event,” he said. “Sadly Ronnie Lane can’t be with us, but I’m sure he will be there in spirit, God bless him.”


Faces split in 1975 after forming in 1969. See for more information.
