Rod Stewart is reuniting with the Faces for the first time since the group's 1975 demise. But it's a one-time gig, and you'll have to make it out to England to catch it.

On Sept. 5, Stewart will join fellow Faces members Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Kenney Jones (drums) in Ewhurst, Surrey for a Rock 'n' Horsepower benefit show supporting Prostate Cancer UK. The show takes place at Hurtwood Park Polo Club at 4:30 p.m. (local time), preceded by a polo match, according to the event's official web site. Tickets are available here.

"This year is the 40th anniversary since the Faces parted ways so it's about time we got together for a jam," Stewart said via statement. "Being in the Faces back in the day was a whirlwind of madness but my God, it was beyond brilliant. We are pleased to be able to support Prostate Cancer UK."

Jones added:

"This is the third Rock 'n' Horsepower we've put on for Prostate Cancer UK and it's shaping up to be the biggest yet. The years of the Faces were some of the best of my life and I'm so proud to have been a part of the band. I'm unbelievably excited to have the opportunity to get up on stage with Rod and Ronnie again. Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan will be dearly missed but we'll raise a glass to them."

Original keyboardist Ian McLagan died in 2014 and bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997.

Stewart was supposed to perform with the Faces when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009, but could not due to illness. 

The Faces' four studio LPs, along with a plethora of rarities, are being re-released on Aug. 25 via a box set called 1970-1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything… Check it out here.
