Rod Stewart lined up for BBC Music Awards

Rod Stewart has joined the line-up for the 2015 BBC Music Awards event in Birmingham next month.

Rod will be joined by three other newly announced acts, singer-songwriter James Bay, country-inspired duo The Shires, and former Beautiful South partners Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott.

Rod Stewart says: “I’m really looking forward to performing at the BBC Music Awards. Birmingham is a terrific city and what a perfect way to round off the year with my loyal UK fans!”

Other artists appearing at the listener event includes Ellie Goulding, Hozier, Jess Glynne, Little Mix, Mumford & Sons, OMI and One Direction plus BBC Introducing Artist of the Year, Jack Garratt. Together they will celebrate an amazing year in music with the BBC Concert Orchestra helping to create some spectacular performances.

Hosted by Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton, the live event will take place from 4-6pm on Thursday 10th December and will be broadcast the same evening on BBC One, Radio 1, Radio 2 and bbc.co.uk/music. There will also be coverage of the Red Carpet arrivals, back stage gossip and exclusive interviews and sessions.

Supported by Birmingham City Council, the BBC Music Awards will feature five awards: British Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year as decided by the BBC Music panel, Song of the Year voted for by members of the public and a special award for a BBC Introducing artist. This year there will be a new award – BBC Live Performance of the Year – which will be given to the band or artist who has delivered THE stand out BBC Music live moment of 2015 also voted by the BBC Music panel.

The Executive Producer for the BBC Music Awards is Guy Freeman.
