U2 have been confirmed as an additional act to perform at the MTV EMAs in Glasgow alongside Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran. The iconic rock band have joined the line-up to perform at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, following the release of their thirteenth studio album Songs of Innocence in September, reported Contactmusic.
The ceremony will be hosted by ‘Superbass’ singer Nicki Minaj, and will also feature performances from Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, and Charli XCX amongst others. ‘The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)’ singers first performed at the annual event in 1997 when it was held in Rotterdam.
The ceremony – which awards fan-voted prizes to the biggest names in music – has already announced that Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne will be honoured for his contribution to music at the event, picking up the Global Icon Award. U2 – comprised of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr – were criticised earlier this year when they made their record available for free through all Apple devices.
