Rod Stewart to rejoin The Faces for one-off show

Rod Stewart will rejoin The Faces for a one-off performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14, when the band are being inducted.

Stewart will sing live with the band for the first time in 19 years next month at the event in Cleveland, Ohio according to The Faces' drummer Kenney Jones. It is the first time the surviving members have played live in public since Stewart was awarded the Lifetime Achievement honour at the Brit awards in 1993.

Speaking to Music Radar, Jones confirmed that Stewart would return to perform with the band. He said: "Contrary to what people might think we're all still great mates and we've never said we wouldn't play together again."

He added: "We all had dinner about a month ago and decided that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be the perfect time and place."

The band reunited to headline the Vintage at Goodwood festival in 2010, but with Mick Hucknall taking over vocal duties. Jones also revealed that Stewart had rehearsed with the band around the festival date, but rehearsals ran flat due to Stewart suffering voice problems.

Rod Stewart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in 1994, but was unable to attend the ceremony in Cleveland because an earthquake hit Los Angeles and the singer wanted to stay close to his family.

Guns 'N' Roses, Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers will also be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame on April 14.
