Mercury Prize

Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas and Field Music – who by no small coincidence have all been shortlisted for this year’s Mercury Music Prize – will mark their nominations by appearing at ‘Albums Of The Year Live’, the first in a series of Mercury-branded shows happening prior to the ceremony (1 Nov).

Jessie et al will play at LSO St Luke’s in London on 26 Sep. Tickets will be free, “although a donation of £10 will need to be made to War Child in order to secure each pair of tickets”. Which I think means tickets are £5 each, though War Child’s a great charity, so hurrah for that.

Anyone wanting to go to the gig needs to register with a special ballot system today at this URL.
