NME have announced headline shows surrounding the NME Awards 2018 ceremony.

Liam Gallagher is set to take away the Godlike Genius award at the event on the 14 February at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, as well as delivering a live performance.

He’ll follow in the footsteps of the likes of Suede, Coldplay, and Pet Shop Boys who took the accoladte at the NME Awards 2017.

“Every once in a while you’re faced with a decision that you might call a total no-brainer. Giving Liam Gallagher the 2018 Godlike Genius award falls into that category,” NME Editor in Chief Mike Williams said.

“Through his history, the tunes, the swagger and the sense of humour, Liam is one of the most iconic rock stars of all time. He’s a frontman who knows the job description – look cool, belt it out, be totally Godlike – and I can’t wait to see him take his rightful place on the throne in Brixton in February.”
