SILVER CLEF AWARDS ADD NEW CATEGORY
Organisers of the Silver Clef Awards, which are held in aid of the Nordoff Robbins charity of course, have announced the addition of another category this year, which, unusually for this event, will be voted for by Joe Public.
The new gong, sponsored by Ticketmaster and supported by Absolute Radio, the Evening Standard and overall Silver Clef sponsors O2, will be for Best Live Act. Ticketmaster has randomly put together a short list (well, they said something about basing it on customer reviews), and now anyone can vote at www.nordoff-robbins.org.uk.
Says the Chairman of Nordoff Robbins: "Music is incredibly powerful. At Nordoff Robbins, we use music to transform the lives of many thousands of people. We want the public to tell us about a gig that's transformed their life in the last twelve months. From Biffy Clyro to Muse, Stevie Wonder and many in between, we're looking for the best live act of the last year".
The list of thirty contenders are as follows: Avenged Sevenfold, Biffy Clyro, Big Noise, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, Goo Goo Dolls, Green Day, James Blunt, Jamie Cullum, Jay-Z, Jonsi, KISS, Korn, Lady Antebellum, Lissie, McFly, Michael Buble, Muse, Newton Faulkner, Paul McCartney, Peter Andre, P!NK, Rob Zombie, Scouting For Girls, Shayne Ward, Skunk Anansie, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, The Script and Train. Vote now and you might win a prize!
Choose a live music act from our Top 30 that has transformed your life in the last 12 months and you could be in with a chance of winning £500 of Ticketmaster Gift Cards, 4 VIP tickets to a gig of your choice at The O2, a one-off engraved iPhone 4 or 2 exclusive tickets to the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards to see the winners collect their awards in person.
