Story by Jack Foley

SIR Paul McCartney is to play an intimate gig in support of the 100 Club in London on Friday lunchtime (December 17, 2010).

The Beatles legend will play at the 300-capacity venue, which is at the centre of a star-studded campaign to prevent its closure. The gig will mark Sir Paul’s smallest concert for more than 10 years.

He said in a statement: “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.”

The campaign to save the club is being supported by stars including Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher.

Wood also recently appeared on stage to play a surprise concert to further his support.

During its illustrious 70-year history, the 100 Club has hosted concerts by acts such as The Rolling Stones, Louis Armstrong, The Who, The Sex Pistols and, more recently, Oasis and Metallica.

Tickets for Sir Paul McCartney’s gig go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, December 15.

The “stripped down” show comes ahead of two further small gigs the music legend has recently announced… in London on Saturday (December 18) and in his home city of Liverpool on Monday. Find out more
