It looks like we might get some Rolling Stones dates in 2015, 40 years after the events in Wood’s new book. And the Faces may play again, too.
Stewart, currently on a solo tour, called in to (Radio.com station) WZLX’s Carter Alan earlier today (December 2) and talked about two potential reunions.
For years, surviving members of the Faces — guitarist Ron Wood, keyboardist Ian McLagan and drummer Kenney Jones — have been hoping for Rod Stewart to sign on for a reunion tour. In the meantime, they’ve done shows with Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall filling in for their iconic frontman. But in a new interview with Billboard, Stewart suggested doing a joint reunion tour where he and Wood would perform one set with the Faces, and another with the Jeff Beck Group.
Bad news for Faces fans: Rod Stewart has announced that he’s extended his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and will return with his hits-filled show for two more years beginning this fall.
Atlanta indie rock band Manchester Orchestra took part in the A.V. Club’s Undercover series, performing a hauntingly melodic cover of Faces’ “Ooh La La.”
“We wanted to do something last year, but because of Mick and Keith working out their differences (we had to wait). They might be doing something at the end of this year.” – Kenney Jones on scheduling a Faces tour around Ron Wood’s Rolling Stones schedule
