According to Grammy.com, U2's bassist will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition of his dedication to and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, as well as his commitment to helping others with addiction recovery.

"Adam is a hero to fans and music creators around the world," said Neil Portnow, president and CEO of The Recording Academy and MusiCares. "And he is also a hero in the world of recovery for his fearless determination to give voice to the issues of addiction that affect — and all too often devastate — our music community." 

"MusiCares does such vital work in helping vulnerable people across our industry," Adam said. "I know from experience the importance of an accessible, supportive environment in times of need and I'm always happy to do what I can to benefit this important organization. I'm very much looking forward to the event in June."

The 13th annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert will take place at PlayStation Theater in New York on June 26 and it’s open to the public. Performers will be announced shortly. Information about tickets is available at 310-392-3777 or wynniew@grammy.com.
