The Who drummer Keith Moon is to be honoured with a blue plaque at the site of some of the band’s early gigs. The plaque will be unveiled by his former bandmates Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend at the location of the Marquee Club on Wardour Street, London.

The Who made their debut at the Marquee Club, at 90 Wardour Street, on 24 November 1964, and went on to play at the venue 29 times.
The plaque has been organised by the Heritage Foundation after a request by Mr and Mrs Hurley was turned down by English Heritage.
An English Heritage spokesperson said they decided not to erect an honour because “more time needs to elapse to judge his contribution more fully”.
