Faces reunion gig raises over £100k

Historic benefit concert, organised by band member and prostate cancer survivor Kenney Jones, wows the fans and critics.


It wasn't just the roof that was raised at last weekend's historic Faces reunion gig. The 5,000 fans who packed into Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey, eager to see the three surviving members of the legendary 70s rock group play together for the first time in 40 years, also helped raise more than £100,000 for Prostate Cancer UK.

Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones – who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013 and instigated the reunion – sang a seven-song set that included their hits I Feel So Good, You Can Make Me Dance, and Ooh La La.

After the gig – which the Telegraph gave a five-star review – the band took to social media to tweet their reactions and thank the fans.
