Stellar line up for Prostate Cancer UK Charity Gig
Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones set to join the line-up at a Prostate Cancer UK charity Gig
Legendary rock band The Faces will be amongst the artists set to perform at Rock ‘n’ Horsepower at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey on Saturday 5 September 2015 reuniting for a short set in support of Prostate Cancer.
As one of the most respected rock ‘n’ roll groups of the 1970s, The Faces produced four outstanding albums and a string of singles which will be re-released as a vinyl box set ‘1970-1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything…’ on 28th August.
Stewart commented; “This year is the 40th anniversary since The Faces parted ways so it’s about time we got together for a jam! 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 said; “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.”
Ronnie added. “Getting back on stage with the lads playing ‘Stay with Me’ and other favourites will be a blast and will make this a very special night. Being in The Faces was a mad and brilliant time for all of us and although we don’t have Ronnie and Mac with us anymore this is our chance to remember them and say “Had Me a Real Good Time”
Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK said;
“What a privilege it is for us as a charity to be benefiting from this moment in rock history. Rock ‘n’ Horsepower has always been about getting together with your mates and rocking out to great music in the name of prostate cancer and men’s health. This gig is set to be something pretty special and we can’t wait”
Further artist details to be announced shortly.
Rock ‘n’ Horsepower – now in its second year – is Prostate Cancer UK’s flagship music event, put on by Kenney Jones and his wife Jayne to raise much needed funds and awareness for the disease. Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men in the UK every year and over 42,000 are diagnosed, making it the most common cancer in men.
The day will once again offer the traditional properties of polo with the added benefit of a high array of high performance super cars on display.

Prostate Cancer UK is the leading UK charity supporting men with prostate cancer and prostate disease.
Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men every year in the UK and each year almost as many men are diagnosed with prostate cancer as women are diagnosed with breast cancer. But research into prostate cancer is badly underfunded, leaving tests and treatments trailing behind other common cancers. And the quality and availability of treatment and care can vary depending on where men live. Men’s health has been low on the agenda for far too long, so it’s time for men to band together against the injustices of prostate cancer.
They are building Men United, a growing team across the UK, to get the message out there about one of theUK’s biggest man killers, support men affected by it, and raise money to fine more reliable tests and treatments for the future.
