2012 NME Awards Tour

The full line up along with tour dates for the latest NME Awards Tour has been announced, and by golly is it a corker. The coveted headline slot goes to Two Door Cinama Club, while Metronomy, Tribes and Azealia Banks make up the rest of the line up. Three great bands there that I would happily go and see on their own headline tours, but for the life of me I can’t figure out why Azealia Banks has been chucked into the mix. Quite frankly she’s not my cup of tea (and honestly I doubt anyone else at these gigs will take a liking to her stuff).
