Live Nation Executive Chairman Irving Azoff, and his wife Shelli, next spring will receive the Spirit of Live Award from City of Hope, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The prestigious Spirit of Live Award is presented annually to “individuals who have committed their time and resources to helping those in need,” and 2011 will mark the second time Azoff has received the honor. Last year, AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke received the award. The Azoffs will be awarded the honor during a fundraising gala next spring, from which the proceeds will benefit the work done by the medical treatment and research facility on behalf of cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS patients.
