U2 to Receive L.A.-Italia Film Fest Award

@U2, February 20, 2014

We thought U2 were headed back to Dublin after their Tonight Show appearance to work on the new album, but it looks like they're sticking around the U.S. a little longer.

The Los Angeles, Italia film festival has announced that U2 will be honored at the Chinese Theatres in Hollywood on Sunday, opening night of the seven-day event. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the awards will honor U2's Oscar-nominated song "Ordinary Love" from the soundtrack to Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

We're not sure about U2's Italian credentials, but other big names scheduled to appear at the festival include American Hustle director David O. Russell (who is Italian-American) and Italian director Roberto Faenza.

UPDATE: Bono will attend to accept the award, organizers said. The event is open to the public, but no more seats are available for the opening ceremonies.
