As previously reported on Spinner, the venue -- which has hosted gigs by the Kinks, Sex Pistols, B.B. King, the Who, the White Stripes and Oasis -- is facing closure due to escalating rents and business rates.
The gig is being organised by blues guitarist Stephen Dale Petit who said via NME, "There is no other venue like it on earth -- when you walk downstairs it's like entering a magic portal. I always feel honoured to perform there, and this show is going to be extra special."
The remaining names on the bill are expected to be revealed by organisers over the next few days. Tickets for the event are on sale now priced £35 ($55). A Facebook campaign to save the 100 Club has attracted over 15,000 members and organisers of the the Save the 100 Club campaign are hoping to save the venue by raising £500,000 [$787,000] by the end of November.
