Ex-Oasis man lends his support to venue campaign
Liam Gallagher has given his support to the campaign to save London‘s 100 Club from closure.
In a handwritten note posted on Savethe100club.co.uk, the ex-Oasis singer wrote that the iconic club is “very rock’n’roll” and that it “sorts the men out from the boys”.
He stated that the potential closure, which is due to increased rent, is “a real shame”, adding that he “fancied playing there again with the mighty Beady Eye“.
Gallagher played the venue with Oasis in 1994.
Other musicians backing the campaign include Mick Jagger, Paul Weller, Carl Barat, Mick Jones and Pixies‘ Frank Black, who has pledged to donate £100,000 to help save it.
Buzzcocks‘ Steve Diggle has also lent his support, saying: “The 100 Club is as important as St Paul’s Cathedral!”
A fundraiser for the campaign featuring Chas & Dave‘s Chas Hodges is being held at the venue on November 25.
