The tenth annual Classic Rock Awards known as the "Classic Rock Roll Of Honour" is coming to the U.S. for the first time. Traditionally held in LONDON, the prestigious awards ceremony will take place TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4th at the AVALON in HOLLYWOOD, CA.
With awards voted for by Classic Rock magazine readers and a special awards section honoring the giants of rock, the centerpiece of the night is the Classic Rock Living Legend Award, a testimonial for a genuine rock icon.The event has grown from humble beginnings to becoming one of the rare 'must dos' on the rock calendar, consistently attracting top A-List names in Rock. Past hosts of the show have included ALICE COOPER, GENE SIMMONS and DUFF MCKAGAN.
Classic Rock's Managing Dir. CHRIS INGHAM said, "Classic Rock is thrilled to bring its annual awards show to L.A. for its tenth show. We have a special show planned for NOVEMBER 4th and it's high time that the rock n' roll folks of the City of Angels are able to experience what has now become one of the most celebrated music award shows in EUROPE. L.A. and Classic Rock magazine share an enormous spiritual connection and if we were going to move this show out of its LONDON home for a year, then there was only ever going to be one city to host it on NOVEMBER 4th."
Past "Living Legends" award recipients include OZZY OSBOURNE, RUSH, BILLY GIBBONS, ALICE COOPER, IGGY POP, JEFF BECK, BLACK SABBATH and JIMMY PAGE.
INGHAM launched the Classic Rock Awards in 2005 at the Café De Paris in LONDON. He previously conceived and launched the Golden God Awards for Metal Hammer magazine in 2003, which has gone on to international recognition.
