A rock band that has had a big impact on the music scene since it broke out in the late 1970s is about to be declared a “Global Icon.” MTV announced that the honor will be bestowed on U2 at the upcoming MTV EMAs — the Europe Music Awards.

The band will play live at Trafalgar Square in the heart of London in honor of the occasion, with part of the performance to be carried during MTV’s presentation of the ceremony at Wembley on Sunday, Nov. 12.

Former recipients of the Global Icon Award include Ozzy Osbourne, Eminem, Whitney Houston, Queen and Bon Jovi.
