Rod Stewart and The Faces reunited for the first time in 40 years for a live concert performance and photos and video — which you can see here — are going viral. Yes, it’s a reunion of rock legends Stewart and his former band mates Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones that finally happened.
Yes, 40 years is a long time. For fans holding out hope from the 1970s to decades later, our music streaming, YouTube viral video 2010s, the hopes were fulfilled as surviving members of the band that broke up in 1975 took to the stage; 70-year-old Rod Stewart, along with 68-year-old Ronnie Wood and 66-year-old Kenney Jones.
The occasion was a charity concert, in Surrey, UK, at Hurtwood Polo Club, the third annual Rock ‘n’ Horsepower Saturday night raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. And along with the charitable efforts, exciting and delighting fans all over the world, far beyond earshot of a live Saturday night outdoor concert.
So yes, those headlines are real, and it’s not every day you see a reunion taking place after such a long time as especially in music years — like dog years — even a year is much like 10! But through the decades, the iconic rock band’s classics have been played and played again. Digitally remastered, yes, and put back on vinyl which, nowadays is the hottest trend.
But yet, the much anticipated reunion took place, as as you can see, all three took to Twitter to express their excitement.
The reunited band played a seven-song set-list (which you can also see in the Tweet below):
I Feel So Good
You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything
Ooh La La
I’d Rather Go Blind
(I Know) I’m Losing You
Stay With Me
Sweet Little Rock & Roller
