Rod Stewart confirms The Faces reunion in the works

The reunion will mark the first with Stewart since 1993

Classic rocker Rod Stewart has confirmed that his original band The Faces is working on a reunion tour.

The 68-year-old rocker confirms that the band he fronted between 1969 and 1975 has begun planning their first proper shows together in over two decades. Stewart spoke to Boston’s WZLX radio ruling out an album, but confirmed plans for a new tour with original members Kenney Jones, Ron Wood and Ian McLaga are in the works for 2015.

“I think we have got much more of a chance of getting the Faces back together, in fact,” he said. “Ronnie [Wood]’s office is talking to my people, and we’re ear-marking 2015.”

The Faces was formed in 1969 and released four studio LPs and one live album. Original bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997.

The Faces have toured in recent years, but without Rod Stewart. Stewart last performed live with the group at the 1993 Brit awards.
