The Faces sort of reunite for festival show

By | Published on Thursday 27 May 2010

The Faces will sort of reunite for a festival show later this year. I say sort of, because Rod Stewart won’t be along for the ride, so lead vocals will be handled by a certain Mick Hucknall. It’s not a totally novel concept, the Simply Red man performed with the rest of the Faces at a gig at the Royal Albert Hall last Autumn. Original Faces members Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan will be involved, while former Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock will fill in for late Faces man Ronnie Lane.

Announcing that The Simply Faces will play the Vintage At Goodwood festival on 13 Aug, Wood told reporters: “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!”
