Live Performing Artists Labor Relations Act - Amends the National Labor Relations Act to permit employers to: (1) agree with a labor organization to make membership in it a condition of performing arts employment; and (2) make agreements with a labor organization covering performing artists even if its majority status has not yet been established (pre-hire agreements).

Defines "employer" to include purchasers of live musical performance services. Defines "employee" to include independent contractors engaged to perform live musical services.

Provides that nothing in the amendments made by this Act shall be construed as affecting the treatment of individuals (as employees or independent contractors) covered by such labor law amendments for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code or any other laws.
