Band to have 'Grounds For Divorce' at the ceremony
Elbow are set to open the Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony on Wednesday night (February 25) at the O2 Academy Brixton in London.
“Play first and you don’t have to wait to start drinking,” joked Elbow frontman Guy Garvey. “It will be a blast!”
NME editor Conor McNicholas added: “Elbow are the only band in NME history to have got nine out of ten from the NME critics for every album they’ve released.
“We’ve been supporters of this amazing band since the beginning and we’re delighted the rest of the country has now caught up. Elbow opening the awards this year will be a spectacular event.”
