Attendance: 2,000; sellout.
During BBC "The Old Grey Whistle Test" interview (10-1979) in Miami Stewart and Andy told the following about this venue:
- Stewart: "One place I'm glad we are playing is the Hammersmith Palais. That's a really need venue. It actually helds more people than the Odeon..[..]. It's a much better place to see a group."
- Andy:"It's a shame nobody is ever using it. I mean it's so rarely used, but it's a fantastic place to play."
- Stewart: "I saw The Specials there. It's a really good place to see a group".
