Sir Paul McCartney will play to an audience of just 300 people at a lunchtime gig on Friday (17 December) in London’s iconic Oxford Street venue, the 100 Club – stage of which has been graced by the likes of the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned in the 1970s.
The 100 Club is at risk of closure due to running costs and this news sparked the massive http://www.savethe100club.co.uk/ campaign to save such a great and iconic venue.
The last time Sir Paul played such an intimate gig was in 1999 in Liverpool’s Cavern Club and he says he is looking forward to the intimacy of the 100 Club.
“I’ve played all sorts of different venues over the years and this kind of show presents a different kind of challenge to performing in a stadium.
“I love performing and I love connecting with audiences, be it in a stadium or arena or in a club I’m looking forward to being able to interact with fans on a face-to-face basis, not to mention the smell of sweat and beer.”
Tickets for the “Packed Lunch” gigs are £60 and go on sale tomorrow morning (15 December) at 10am – fans are only allowed two tickets each and will be available through a ticket hotline – 08442 485077 – or at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
