Boyband JLS have been crowned Britain's hardest-working band in 2012 after headlining more major concerts than any other artists.
The boys performed 34 UK shows in the last year, securing the title for the second year in a row. JLS said they were "delighted" with their accolade, and said 2012 had been an awesome year for them.
PRS for Music is an organisation which collects royalties on behalf of songwriters, and gives out the award every year. PRS for Music spokesman Barney Hooper said:
Westlife played 31 arena gigs and were runners-up in the list:
- JLS: 34 gigs across the UK
- Westlife: 31 arena shows
- Steps: 25 concerts
- Olly Murs: 21 shows
- Florence and the Machine: 17 shows
2012 may have been a sell-out year for One Direction but the US favourites only managed 12 gigs on home turf.
