Rod Stewart is desperate for The Faces to be invited to play at Glastonbury festival.

The 70-year-old singer has called on the festival's founder Michael Eavis to get in touch with the band - which recently reformed with remaining members Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones - because it's the one gig they never got to do.

Rod pleaded: "I just wish someone would phone us up from Glastonbury and ask us to do that. They have never done it. We would be up for it. There are only three of us standing now."

The 'Stay With Me' hitmakers tried to reform for a string of dates in 2010 and 2011 but chose to go with Simply Red's Mick Hucknall on lead vocals instead of Rod.

And Ronnie previously blamed Rod's management for the delay in making the full reunion happen.

The 'Ooh La La' crooners - whose bassist Ronnie Lane passed away in 1997 - were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 where they were set to reunite but Rod pulled out of the performance due to illness.

The rockers finally reunited last month, but Rod admitted it went by in a flash.

He told BBC Radio London: "It is like sex sometimes. It goes by too fast."
