Paul McCartney to play 100 Club

By | Published on Wednesday 15 December 2010

Paul McCartney will play the 100 Club this Friday. That’s former Beatle Paul McCartney at the 350 capacity 100 Club. How exciting. Unfortunately, tickets went on sale at 10am this morning and were all sold in about 2.7 seconds. But it’s still exciting news, huh? Come on, it’s not like you would have got tickets anyway.

The lunchtime show is, of course, part of the ongoing campaign to save the possibly soon to be defunct London venue.

Announcing the show, McCartney told reporters yesterday: “I’ve played all sorts of different venues over the years and this kind of show presents a different 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”.

On Friday evening Macca will also play the Hammersmith Apollo. It’s going to be a busy day, I hope he has a nap at some point.
