At last month’s headline show by Liam Gallagher at The O2 for NHS workers, the National Arenas Association (NAA) and Liam Gallagher presented the National Arenas Award 2021 for ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Live Entertainment Industry’ to Chris York of SJM Concerts. The award was presented to Chris in recognition of his influential work in the music industry, and longstanding relationship with Liam and many other chart-topping artists.
John Drury, VP & General Manager at The SSE Arena Wembley, on behalf of the NAA said: “It’s fitting that Chris York should be given his NAA Award by Liam, one of the UK’s biggest artists. The 2021 award honours Chris for the huge contribution he’s made to live music in the NAA arenas. His passion and commitment to the industry has always been reflected in the very high regard in which he’s held by everyone he works with - it’s an honour to recognise that now.”
Chris York, SJM Concerts added: “I was genuinely touched to receive the NAA award in recognition of the decades of toil in live music, with the great team of SJM Concerts behind me. It means a lot. It’s a great business and one I hope to see bounce back strongly again. Thank you for thinking of me.”
