According to The Daily Star and Festival organiser John Giddings, Rod Stewart will reunite The Faces to play the Isle Of Wight Festival on 11th June.

John Giddings is quoted in the British tabloid:

"I suspect Ronnie [Wood] and co may come along.

"He [Rod Stewart] will put on a bit of a show because it was on his bucket list to play the Isle Of Wight.

"And he's got a hit called 'Sailing'!"

"One of the groups on the bill are recording a song with Rod Stewart, but I'm not going to tell you who it is because I'd be letting the cat out of the bag.

"The idea that they would be working with him was really interesting."

The Daily Star says that act is rumoured to be Catfish & The Bottlemen and that Rod wants a celebrity duet on stage. John Giddings added:

"There's a girl on the bill who I'm trying to get to do a duet with him too."

The Star speculates that is Melanie C or possibly Imelda May.

John also told the paper how he managed to book Rod Stewart for the festival.

"I bumped into Rod at a charity do and I said: 'Why've you never played the Isle Of Wight Festival?' and he said: 'Well no-one's ever asked me.'

"I said: 'They have now' and that was it!"

As well as Ronnie Wood, drummer Kenney Jones is also tipped to join The Faces reunion party on the Sunday of the three day event and if everything goes to plan it will only be Rod's second performance with The Faces in more than twenty years, the last being at a prostate cancer benefit gig in 2015.
