Motley Crue are to be honoured at the fourth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles with the event's Elmer Valentine Award.
The accolade is handed to rockers and promoters who have had a major impact on the famous real estate.
Past recipients have been Ozzy Osbourne, Slash and Sunset Strip founders Lou Adler, Mario Maglieri and Elmer Valentine himself.
Motley Crue's members will be honoured at the House of Blues in August (11). The gala will kick off this year's three-day celebration of music at venues along the iconic 1.6-mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard.
Crue drummer Tommy Lee tells WENN, "It's an honour to be recognised by the Sunset Strip Music Festival. It means a lot to us that we are recognised for our contribution to this historic place."
Motley Crue got their start on the Sunset Strip as they performed many nights at the Whisky A Go-Go and The Roxy Theatre. The band also filmed its Kickstart My Heart video at the Whisky A Go-Go and once lived just up the street from the venue.
In addition to the tribute event, the City of West Hollywood will also recognise Motley Crue with a special day in their honour.
West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman says, "We are happy to welcome back Motley Crue, as they return to their rock roots as the honorees for this year’s festival."
