Ex-Beatle to play intimate show on Friday (Dec 17)

Paul McCartney is set to play a lunchtime show at the 100 Club in London on Friday (December 17).

Tickets to see the former Beatle go on sale tomorrow (15) at 10am (GMT).

Speaking about the 100 Club show McCartney said: “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.

He added: “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!”

The 100 Club is under threat of closure, and could close its doors for good before 2011 ends if £500,000 is not raised to help its plight. Liam Gallagher, Mick Jagger and Mick Jones are among the musicians who have lent their support to the campaign to save it.

McCartney played the Apollo Theater in Harlem last night (13). He is set to play London‘s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday (18) the O2 Academy Liverpool on Sunday (20).
