A tour featuring the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group could be in order soon. That is if it is confirmed.
Rod Stewart recently announced plans to set up a double tour of the two groups together, both of which he was a member of. During the announcement, the singer had also mentioned a Faces reunion tour had been planned before, but had always fell through as the timing was never right for either Stewart or guitarist Ronnie Wood (who was also a member of both the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group). The announcement comes around the time Wood and Beck are in preparations in celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Jeff Beck Group’s debut album Truth. As of now, the double tour is not yet confirmed. But if it is, it will definitely make the news.
In other music news, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler made a surprise appearance in a tiny Nashvill club, performing two songs before the audience were ushered out for the next show. The club was the Bluebird Café, and Tyler was in the audience watching performances from four songwriters which include Mallary Hope, Phil Barton, Lindsey Lee, and Marti Frederiksen. Tyler was invited by Frederiksen to sing Aerosmith’s 2001’s hit “Jaded”, which the two wrote together. Tyler then played the classic ballad “Dream On”. Following the show, Tyler told the Associated Press why he was in Nashville, which was to write songs.
