The original Faces lineup comprised Stewart, Wood, Ian McLagan, Kenney Jones and the late Ronnie Lane.

Stewart and keyboard player Ian McLagan has both previously discussed the possibility of a Faces reunion, with the idea that they would play one or two shows and record some new material.

The band originally formed in 1969 and released four studio albums between 1970 and 1973, which included the hits 'Stay With Me' and 'Ooh La La'.

The Faces split up in 1975 after Wood began playing with The Rolling Stones.
