11 Aug 2010.Faces live at The British Music Experience Soundstage Bubble at The 02 Arena Complex,London.

First full show for around 35 years for this legendary outfit who now comprise of originals Ronnie Wood,Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan along with new boys Glen Matlock and Mick Hucknall.Only 400 people here at this small warm up gig for this Fridays Goodward Festival show.A rarely used venue but i did see Bon Jovi play a secret gig here just before Christmas. Before the show started there was a 35 mins Q n A session for the first 100 in the door which was good fun.The Faces played for 70 mins and it was a great set.Lots of their old songs along with a couple of cover versions they did back in the day.Glen Matlock is loving every minute as he is playing in his all time fave band.Mick Hucknall is not an obvious choice as singer but he really has got an amazing soul voice.Ronnie Wood on top form with his guitar licks and Ian McLagans keyboards giving it that great blues rock boogie Faces sound.Both the Q n A and the gig were filmed so will be interesting to see when and where that comes out.Set was "Miss Judys Farm","Had Me A Real Good Time","Too Bad","Ooh La La","I Wish It Would Rain","Maybe I'm Amazed"(Paul McCartney cover), "Flying","Cindy Incidentally","I'm Losing You", "I'd Rather Go Blind"(Etta James cover),"Pool Hall Richard" and encores of a blues cover??? followed by "Stay With Me".......
