Black Sabbath to be honored at 02 Silver Clef Awards

Black Sabbath will be honored at the 02 Silver Clef Awards in London next month.

The July 4 event at the London Hilton will see music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins present the band with the AEG Live Ambassadors Of Rock award.

“Winning the Ambassadors of Rock award from Nordoff Robbins is a huge honour,” says Ozzy Osbourne. “Music is our life, and we couldn't live without it. The world can't survive without music and this is a very special charity that brings music to everyone. There are a lot of talented people already being honoured at the awards and we are looking forward to celebrating with them at the O2 Silver Clefs this summer."

"We are extremely proud to be sponsoring this award which highlights the massive impact Black Sabbath has had on the music world,” adds AEG Europe President and CEO Tom Miserendino. “Starting in Birmingham and going on to conquer the world, the band really are great ambassadors for the music industry. We are equally excited about them taking over Hyde Park later the same evening following their triumphant return to live gigs last year."

"Black Sabbath are still at the top of their game after a long, illustrious and occasionally controversial career,” says Emma Banks, Chariman of the Noroff Robbins 02 Silver Clef committee. “Selling out arenas all over the globe, they really are Rock Gods!"

Other artists set to be honored at the 02 Silver Clef Awards include Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, Sir Tom Jones, Giorgio Moroder and Pharrell Williams.

Black Sabbath are currently playing shows across Europe on their “13” world tour, which will wrap up with a July 4 show in London’s Hyde Park.

The band will be joined at the event by a lineup that includes Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motorhead, Soulfly and Wolfmother, among others.
