Beady Eye’s Liam Gallagher named among hardest-working artists in showbiz

Olly Murs and JLS came joint top of PRS For Music poll

Liam Gallagher has been credited as being among the hardest-working artists in showbiz by a music industry body.

The Beady Eye frontman made it into the top 10 of PRS For Music’s annual poll, which finds out which acts have headlined the most major venues throughout the year.

Olly Murs and JLS came out joint top of the poll, while Take That were just behind in third place.


Barney Hooper from PRS For Music explained:

Performing live and going on tour are fundamental to any artist and is a great way for them to engage with their fans. Congratulations to both JLS and Olly Murs and all the songwriters who they have worked with to create the music that so many people are enjoying.

JLS hailed their nod as a “great achievement”, while Murs said it was a “real honour” to come out joint top of the list.

Gallagher has not yet commented on his band’s top ten placing, which came as a result of numerous headline dates around the UK and the rest of the world with Beady Eye.
