Tomorrow night, the 2006 Vodafone Live Music Awards are held in the legendary Roundhouse in London. Amongst the bands nominated for awards are Pink Floyd, who are in the running for "Best Live Return" for their headlining making appearance at Live 8.


Vodafone Live Music AwardsThousands of members of the UK public cast their votes over the last few months, although the "Best Live Return" category was one of those deliberated on by industry experts.

Tickets for the event were awarded to a random selection of those who voted. But if you weren't lucky enough to bag some of the VIP tickets, you can watch the event on UK TV station Channel 4 at 23:05hrs, tomorrow night (11th October) or catch the repeat on E4 on 14th October at 23:00hrs.
