Rod Stewart will perform with the Faces when they are inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame next month.

The veteran 'Stay With Me' singer will appear with his old band for the first time in 19 years at the ceremony, which will be held next month in Ohio.

The band - which also features Kenney Jones, Ronnie Wood and Ian McLagan - last reunited in 1993 at the BRIT awards in London, when Rod received a lifetime achievement award.

Drummer Kenney told MusicRadar.com: "Contrary to what some people might think, we're all still great mates and we've never said we wouldn't play together again.

"We all had dinner about a month ago and decided that the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame would be the perfect time and place."

The band will dedicate their performance to late bassist Ronnie Lane - who sadly passed away in 1997 - at the event.

The Faces have recently been touring with former Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall in Rod's place, but reunited with the vocalist for rehearsals a few years ago.

Kenney added: "The last time we rehearsed together was about three years ago at a little place in Bermondsey, the same place where we used to rehearse back in the '70s, just to see if the magic was still there - and it was. We ended up not doing anything more for a couple of reasons, including Rod's busy solo schedule and his Vegas commitments, which is why we brought in Mick for a few dates."

The Faces, their parent band The Small Faces, Guns N' Roses, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan and more will be inducted to the Hall of Fame in Cleveland on April 14.
