The Shockwaves NME Awards Tour is back and bigger than ever! Famous for discovering the likes of The Killers and Arctic Monkeys, this year's line-up won't let you down! Electrifying Scottish rebel rousers Glasvegas are headlining, supported by Hertfordshire indie-dance outfit Friendly Fires, West London three-piece White Lies, and flamboyant South London songstress Florence and the Machine - three of the most exciting acts on the 2009 indie-rock circuit.

The tour will storm across the country in the weeks leading up to the renowned ceremony itself, hitting Norwich UEA on Thursday February 12 and courtesy of headline sponsor Shockwaves THREE winners can win a pair of tickets to the gig.

Of course you will want to look the part so Shockwaves is on hand to perfect your rock star style. For a rough and ready finish, get Go Matt Clay (RRP �2.99). Apply to dry hair with your fingers, creating texture and definition with a totally wicked matt finish. And Shockwaves Tuff Stuff (RRP �2.49) will give a cool style that's heat and sweat proof.

To get your hands on a pair of tickets for this sold-out concert, simply answer the following question: Name the band that headlined the 2008 Shockwaves NME Awards Tour when it visited Norwich UEA.
