Rod Stewart turned 70 this past Saturday, and the famed singer celebrated the milestone birthday with a blowout bash at his Beverly Hills home that included a reunion performance with his fellow surviving Faces band mates.
Hello magazine reports that the party was organized by Stewart’s wife, Penny Lancaster, and featured a 1940s theme in honor of the decade when Rod entered the world.
A representative for Stewart and his wife tells Hello that 120 guests attended the event, and that during the festivities, “Rod surprised his guests by starting out the entertainment with a few of his Great American Songbook classics. Followed by the wonderful 19-piece Glen Miller band.” After that, the real treat came: Stewart was joined by Faces guitarist Ronnie Wood and drummer Kenney Jones for a short set that paid tribute to the band’s keyboardist, Ian McLagan, who died suddenly last month after suffering a stroke.
The magazine’s website posted a photo from the party showing Stewart, Wood and Jones, along with Rod’s and Ronnie’s wives, posing at one of the tables.
Earlier this week, Jones posted a brief note about the party on his official Facebook page: “Great night and played with my mates Rod and Woody. Only two songs but it was fun.”
