Despite turning down the award last year, Muse have announced that they will accept the 35th annual Silver Clef Award in July. As well as patting the backs of rock stars, the music business ceremony also raises money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, and features an auction of celebrity memorabilia.

In a statement, Muse said: “We are delighted to be presented this year’s Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef and join the ranks of such artistes as Robert Plant, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Elton John and The Who. Nordoff Robbins is an exceptional charity that has a positive impact on so many people’s lives, and we are very proud to be recognised by them in this way”.

The band will receive the award at London’s Hilton Hotel on Park Lane on 2 Jul. The ceremony will be hosted by Sharon Osbourne.
