The NME Premier London Shows will be broadcast on Radio One. Lamacq Live will broadcast a selection of sets from the gigs on two Mondays in January from 8pm-midnight. Bands will be chosen from all seven of the dates, but it's not yet been confirmed which acts will feature.

Steve Lamacq will also be announcing the winners of the NME Premier Awards exclusively on his show on January 25, the day before the NME Premier film, which takes the place of an awards ceremony, is premiered at the London Virgin Haymarket.
