Squeeze gig venue to receive 'blue plaque'

Squeeze's first gig venue is to receive its own unique 'blue plaque' later this month (March 23).

Band members Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford are set to unveil the plaque at Greenwich Dance Hall in London on March 23 at 2:30pm (GMT).

The plaque commemorates the group's first show in 1975, and is part of a scheme set up by the Performance Rights Society For Music. Dire Straits, Jethro Tull and Blur already received the honour.

"It's a pleasure to return to the place where we performed as Squeeze way back in 1975," Tilbrook explained. "I still buy my cheese just up the road."
