Embrace, Shack and Bentley Rhythm Ace ensure the Channel 4 series ends in a blaze of glory...

EMBRACE, Bentley Rhythm Ace and SHACK lead the grand finale as the NME Premier Live Shows on Channel 4 wind up in a blaze of glory this week.

With the best live music from NME‘s series of gigs at London Astoria earlier this year, plus frankly inebriated interviews with the bands not to mention the rocking rants of NME scribes, the series has been the only essential music viewing so far in Y2K.

Also appearing on the final shows – which are broadcast on Thursday (May 25) at 00.25am and 01.10am – will be Asian Dub Foundation and Coldplay, with a soaring version of new single ‘Yellow’.
