Mick Jagger - 100 Club Saved

Subscribe to Mick Jagger alerts

London's legendary 100 Club has been saved from closure following a star-studded campaign by music legends including SIR Mick Jagger and Sir Paul McCartney.
The popular venue, situated on Oxford Street, came under threat last year (10) amid soaring rents in central London, and a number of famous faces stepped forward in a bid to rescue the club.
Both Jagger and his Rolling Stones bandmate Ronnie Wood have helped the campaign, along with Pixies rocker Frank Black, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and MCCartney, who played a show there in December (10).
The campaign has now proved a success - bosses at shoe company Converse have come forward to save the 100 Club.
A statement from the company reads, "We at Converse are very excited about our new partnership with the legendary 100 Club in London," while venue owner Jeff Horton tells XFM he is "absolutely thrilled" the club will stay open.
