According to Ticketline, Faces will “reform for one night only for Helping The Heart of Music” on Oct. 25.

“Helping The Heart of Music” is a benefit for the PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund, a charity that helps musicians, composers and songwriters in need. The Oct. 25 fundraiser was previously announced as featuring Jan Akkerman, Melanie C, Paul Carrack, Kiki Dee, Chris Difford, Georgie Fame, Robin Gibb, Mark King, , Martin Taylor, Bill Wyman, Mick Hucknall and “some very important guests.”

Now it looks as if those “very important guests” is actually a Faces reunion.

Of course, it’s not everybody from the band’s glory days. Bassist Ronnie Lane died from pneumonia in 1997. So fans already know he’s not showing up.

But the most notable living Faces vet that won’t be at the show is Rod Stewart. According to the BBC, the reunion features Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan with the previously announced Wyman subbing for the late, great Lane.

Speaking of Wyman, the former Rolling Stones bass player will have his hands full that night. In addition to Wyman’s appearance in the reconstituted Faces, his Rhythm Kings will serve as the event’s house band backing all of the night’s performers.

But is Faces without Stewart and Lane really, well, Faces? That’s why God created comment threads. Please add your thoughts to this very important matter to the thread below.
