26 May 2010 Here's a nice interview bit between the BBC, Kenney, and Ronnie, concerning the reunion: link to BBC

25 May 2010 The Faces Reunion is on!

On Friday 13th August, the legendary 1970s English supergroup, Faces, will perform at the inaugural Vintage at Goodwood festival at the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England. The reformed Faces will feature original members Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan, plus Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), and vocals from Mick Hucknall (of Simply Red).

Ronnie Wood says: "We got together to receive a PRS Lifetime Achievement award last year and very simply the magic was still there. 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!"

Kenney Jones says: "When we realised at the PRS Awards we hadn't played a live gig since 1975 we just couldn't believe it! The timing is just right, we can feel the excitement and we cannot wait to be back on stage playing to a live audience again. Expect the classics and also some incredible guests when we get back on the road, it's going to be lots of fun."

Ian 'Mac' McLagan says: "Frustrated Faces fans can finally feel the heat as Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and me hit the stage with Mick Hucknall and Glen Matlock fanning the flames!"

More info, including box office info, to follow. Official T-shirts?
