Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the announcement of the highly anticipated Todd Rundgren produced new studio album Cause I Sez So, the New York Dolls have announced a rare London concert at the legendary historic punk venue The 100 Club on Thursday, May 14, 2009.

Tickets for the show, which will accommodate an audience of 400, go on sale on Tuesday, April 7, at 9am, and are priced at £20. They will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

The 100 Club has promoted live music on the same premises since 1942. Originally a restaurant called Mack’s, the venue has gone on to become one of the most historical concert venues in Europe.

About Cause I Sez So

Released in the UK on Monday, May 4, 2009, Cause I Sez So reunites the New York Dolls with producer Todd Rundgren for the first time since they worked together on the band’s influential debut in 1973.

Recorded at Utopia Sound Studio in Kauai, Hawaii, the album features 11 original compositions and a new version of Trash, that originally featured on their milestone 1973 debut album.

“It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present,” says front man David Johansen.

The New York Dolls are: David Johansen (vocals), Sylvain Sylvain (guitar), Steve Conte (guitar), Brian Delaney (drums) and Sami Yaffa (bass).
