Liam Gallagher has joined the celebrities fighting to keep fabled London venue The 100 Club alive and he is considering launching his new band Beady Eye there. The former Oasis frontman has sent a handwritten note to the organizers of a new campaign to raise vital funds for the club, which has staged landmark gigs featuring The Kinks, Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones.
Gallagher performed at the venue in 1994 with Oasis and admits he has been thinking about performing there again with his new band. He writes, "It's a real shame. Fancied playing there again with the mighty Beady Eye."
The "Some Might Say" singer has joined rockers Mick Jagger, Mick Jones and Ray Davies among those who have publicly supported the bid to keep the club open. Venue bosses need to raise $750,000 from a series of upcoming benefit shows to save the 100 Club from closure.
