With THE DAMNED having just celebrated their 40th Anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall, original guitarist BRIAN JAMES has announced a special show at the 100 Club, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the his former band's first show at the prestigious London venue.
Titled The Anniversary Waltz, the show on Wednesday 6 July comes 40 years to the day since The Damned took to the hallowed 100 Club stage, playing their first ever show as support to the SEX PISTOLS. The following October they would make history by releasing 'New Rose', the first ever U.K. punk single.
The 100 Club show will also serve as the launch party for a new limited edition 7" inch E.P., also titled The Anniversary Waltz, set for release through Easy Action Records. James' latest album, The Guitar That Dripped Blood was released last year to critical acclaim.
Support for the show comes from fellow Easy Action recording stars BLACK BOMBERS.
Tickets are on sale now here.
