Fans of Squeeze and local historians of south-east London will be pleased to know that the PRS for Music Squeeze Musical Heritage Award plaque has been returned to it’s rightful place.
A crack team of workmen turned up to the Greenwich Dance Agency, arriving in the PRS for Music white van to restore the plaque to the site of Squeeze’s first gig.
The plaque had been lying lonely in storage while planning permission to mount the musical marker was sought from Greenwich council following the grand unveiling in March 2010.
In addition to Squeeze, PRS for Music have honoured Blur, Jethro Tull, Dire Straits, Snow Patrol, Elton John and Status Quo with Musical Heritage Award plaques at the site of their very first gigs. The plaques celebrate the iconic artists as well as the venues that gave them their first break.
