In the first cover for a Club heâ€™s created since Sgt Pepper’s, Sir Peter Blake has joined the campaign to Save London’s 100 Club.
The artist has designed the cover for a special, limited edition Souvenir Programme for Wednesday 1st December’s 100 Club Benefit night starring special guests Chris Barber and Rolling Stones Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood.
â€œClubs like this â€“ and the 100 Club is the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me â€“ must be allowed to continueâ€ says Sir Peter â€œI well remember going along there in the 60s to hear Cyril Davies and Alexis Korner and the embryonic Rolling Stones performing Chuck Berry songsâ€.
Sir Peterâ€™s bold and striking signed design will adorn the cover of a limited edition souvenir programme to be sold at the 100 Club event which is being staged at the iconic venue this Wednesday night.
The programme also features many hitherto unavailable historic photographs of the myriad legendary performers at the venue and is certain to become a â€˜must haveâ€™ item for arts and music connoisseurs alike.
As well as a stellar guest line-up onstage, the event will attract a cross section of celebrities and fans all united in a desire to rescue the venue from closure.
A benefit single, recorded by Petit Need Your Love So Bad (Save The 100 Club) will also be launched at the event and is expected to enter high in the single charts, thanks to BBC Radio 2 airplay and sales to an army of club supporters numbering in excess of 20,000.
London’s iconic but beleaguered Temple to Music, Oxford Street’s 100 Club, continues to receive increasingly high profile pledges of support from the worlds of rock and blues.
