Fozzy singer/WWE personality Chris Jericho will host Oct. 24 event in Los Angeles
Hard-rock/metal website Loudwire is presenting its first-ever Loudwire Music Awards ceremony and concert on Oct. 24 at The Novo Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The preliminary lineup, which will feature exclusive performances, will be announced July 19.
Black Sabbath member Tony Iommi will be honored with the Courage Award, which recognizes both his musical output and his bravery in his battle with cancer. The guitarist was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, and is currently in remission. Going forward, the award will be called the Iommi and presented to future generations of courageous artists.
Iommi is not only receiving an award — he literally is the Loudwire Music Award. His hand served as the original mold for the official Hand of Doom trophy that will be presented to all winners and honorees.
