U2 to Receive 2016 iHeartRadio Innovator Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards
The group is being honored for their "undeniable impact on the world of popular culture"
Celebrating 40 years together this year, Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen are being honored for their “undeniable impact on the world of popular culture [and] and their unparalleled contributions to the music industry and social causes,” according to a press release.
The rock band has racked up 22 Grammy awards together and has consistently been committed to social activism throughout their time together.
“It is extremely rare to have a band that has spent four decades not only changing music, but helping change the world with their tireless dedication to important social causes focusing on AIDS, poverty, cancer, the environment, Hurricane Katrina and much more,” says Tom Poleman, president of national programming group for iHeartMedia.
