Adam will be honoured in New York on June 26th, at a benefit night to mark MusiCares' addiction recovery programmes.

Performers on the night include Jack Garratt, The Lumineers, Macy Gray and Michael Franti, with Cat Deeley hosting the evening. (Stop Press. One more act on the bill - U2!)

MusiCares - a Grammy initiative - offers a variety of addiction recovery services, including the signature MAP Fund,  a pool of resources to address addiction and recovery needs, which provides addiction recovery treatment and sober living resources for members of the music community.

"Adam is a hero to fans and music creators around the world,” said Neil Portnow, President/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 added. "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."

The opening announcement to BAD brought my wife to tears; we know and understand how addiction destroys families as we are one in the wake of it's devastation. Please continue spreading the word and supporting these wonderful organizations! Until someone is entangled in the depth of this disease with someone they LOVE (our child) can they fully comprehend the magnitude of its destruction! Again, THANK YOU!! Haven't missed a tour in 30 years and will continue!
