Peter Andre hardest working man in pop, no really

Peter Andre

Elsewhere in pop surveys, Peter Andre has been named the hardest working man in British pop by PRS For Music, which defines such a thing in terms of the number of arena concerts played in any one year. It seems Andre played more arena dates than anyone else in 2010, with 100,000 fans showing up to his 38 date ‘Revelation’ tour. I’m saying nothing.

The next busiest arena giggers in the UK last year were Status Quo, JLS, Westlife and Rod Stewart, which can only mean that lady pop stars are very lazy. In a similar poll for smaller venue gigs one lady did appear, Ellie Goulding, who sits just behind Example on that list, and alongside Tinie Tempah.

And now a quote from Peter Andre: “Nothing beats performing live. Performing in front of thousands of fans is my ultimate experience so I’m delighted to get this recognition from PRS For Music”.
