Bon Jovi to receive Icon Award

Bon Jovi will receive the first annual Icon Award at the upcoming iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The 'Living On a Prayer' hitmakers will pick up the accolade at the ceremony next month, and they will also entertain the audience at Los Angeles' Forum with a performance.

The inaugural Icon Award celebrates the band for their longevity, contribution to pop culture and the impact they have made on rock music, and will come just a month before they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Bon Jovi are not the only artists who will be receiving special honours at the awards show.

Chance the Rapper is being recognised for his groundbreaking musical artistry and dedication to social and political causes with the iHeartRadio Innovator Award, while Camila Cabello will be presented with the iHeartRadio Fangirls Award, which is given in conjunction with L'Oréal Paris.  —Contactmusic
