Event description

Description

Vivian Campbell will receive this year’s Oh Yeah Legend Award. The event which runs alongside the NI Music Prize, recognises the exceptional contribution of a musician or music industry figure from Northern Ireland. It will be the culmination of this year's Sound of Belfast festival, which will run from 2 - 11 November, and will be supported by Live Music Partner Blue Moon for a second year.

The presentation will be followed by a full live performance from Vivian with his current band Last In Line, at the Mandela Hall, Belfast, November 11.

Vivian Campbell is one of the leading names in rock from Northern Ireland. His story is one of global success that began with Sweet Savage, a band considered to one of the most influential of the ‘New Wave of British Metal’, writing music that influenced the likes of Metallica, who went on to cover a Sweet Savage song.

Vivian has since written, performed, toured and worked with some of the biggest names in rock including Thin Lizzy, DIO, Whitesnake, Riverdogs, and Lou Gramm (ex-foreigner). In 1992 he found a permanent home with British rock legends Def Leppard and this year he celebrates 25 years with the band.

Vivian continues to write and perform on various other projects and will be bringing his current band Last In Line to the Mandela for a special Legend Award performance.

Previous recipients of the Oh Yeah Legends Award are:

Terri Hooley (2008), Henry McCullough (2009), The Undertones (2010), Stiff Little Fingers (2011), Gary Moore (posthumous) (2012), Therapy? (2014), Divine Comedy (2015) and Ash (2016).

Vivian had this to say about the award "I've been very fortunate that my life's work has also been my passion. It's an honour to be recognised for that, and especially so when that recognition comes from my fellow countrymen."

The NI Music Prize In Association With Blue Moon is produced by the Oh Yeah music centre and is also supported by PPL and The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

The Oh Yeah Legend Award is supported by PRS.

Please note - the NI Music Prize is a two part event - ticket qualifies for the whole evening.

The first half of the evening will see a selection of acts shortlisted for the NI Music Prize (album of the year) perform short sets, followed by announcement of NI Music Prize winner - the remainder of the evening will follow with presentation to Vivian Campbell and followed by a full set from Last in Line.
