Faces to play UK festival with Mick Hucknall on vocals

Rod Stewart not part of the set-up for August event

The Faces are set to play the Vintage At Goodwood festival in August with Simply Red‘s Mick Hucknell on vocal duties.

Original frontman Rod Stewart is not part of the set-up for the show, set to take place on August 13-15 at Sussex‘s Goodwood Estate. Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, playing in the place of the band’s late bassist Ronnie Lane, will join original members Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan.

The band reunited last October to play London‘s Royal Albert Hall – their first gig since 1975. Wood said that because that gig went well, they were happy to take another booking for this summer.


“We got together to receive a PRS Lifetime Achievement award last year and very simply the magic was still there,” he said. “Playing with the boys again just felt right so we thought well why not? It’s exciting to be on this path again and I hope that the Faces fans are excited as we are – I’m just really looking forward to seeing them this summer – bring it on!”

Drummer Jones added: “Expect the classics and also some incredible guests when we get back on the road, it’s going to be lots of fun.”
