The new ‘Albums of the Year Live’ gig series offers fans a rare opportunity to see the 12 Barclaycard Mercury Prize shortlisted musicians up, close and personal.

Ben Howard and Roller Trio will both play LSO Luke’s in London to help raise money for War Child, supporting the work they do in assisting children affected by conflict around the world.

We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on a pair of tickets for the show. For your chance to be a winner, just simply email, with ‘Mercury Prize’ in the subject header along with your name and number by Friday 12 Oct, 12pm. All guests need to be over 18 and should arrive at the venue by 6.30pm for the gig which kicks off at 7pm.

Further gigs featuring more of the shortlisted artists will be announced over the coming weeks, whilst the overall winner of the 2012 Barclaycard Mercury Prize for UK Album of the Year will then be announced at the Awards Show on 1 November. To find out more on Barclaycard Mercury Prize visit
