Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame act Faces said farewell to their home country on this date. Faces featuring frontman Rod Stewart, keyboardist Ian McLagan, guitarist Ron Wood, drummer Kenney Jones and bassist Tetsu Yamauchi played what would be their final concert in the U.K. at London’s Kilburn State Theatre on December 23, 1974. Though Faces went on to tour the U.S. twice in 1975, the band’s London performance from the prior December was filmed and released under the moniker Rod Stewart & Faces – The Final Concert.
The Final Concert is a rollicking Faces set which includes guest spots from Rolling Stones’ guitarist Keith Richards for “Sweet Little Rock’n Roller,” “I’d Rather Go Blind” and “Twistin’ The Night Away.” Faces show off their propensity for covers throughout the set with songs such as Bobby Womack’s “It’s All Over Now,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Angel” and Sam Cooke’s “Twistin’ The Night Away” thrown in. The concert ends with a pair of hits from Stewart’s solo albums – “You Wear It Well” and “Maggie May” – followed by an a capella rendition of “We’ll Meet Again” which ended most Faces concerts between 1971 and 1974.
