We bring you an all-singing, all dancing lowdown on this year's activity...

nme.com today launches it’s own microsite devoted to this year’s NME PREMIER AWARDS, NME PREMIER TOUR and the week of NME PREMIER SHOWS taking place later this month.

The site features full details of all dates of the NME Premier Tour, which features Shack, Coldplay, Campag Velocet and Les Rythmes Digitales and tours the entire UK starting on January 19 at Newcastle University.

The site also features full details of the bills for all the NME Premier Shows, which are on from January 25-31 at the London WC1 Astoria and the London N1 Scala on January 29.

There’s also full details of how to get your hands on tickets to any of the shows on the tour or to any of the London events.

Plus, you can read reviews of all the best of last year’s action and choose e-cards featuring any of the bands taking part in this year’s festivities to send to your friends.

We’ll also have full details of the NME Premier Awards – the gongs formerly known as The Brats – and coming next week, we’ll also have mini-sites online for EVERY BAND featured in this year’s NME Premier Shows or on the NME Premier Tour where you’ll be able to download the latest singles from each and every one of ’em.

Stay tuned…it’s all about to kick off!
