Watch: Bon Jovi accepts Icon Award at 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Bon Jovi continue to enjoy massive success in 2018. Hot on the heels of returning to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 earlier this month with an expanded reissue of their 2016 studio album This House Is Not For Sale, the legendary British rockers were honored with the first-ever Icon Award at the the fifth annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, which took place March 11 in Los Angeles at The Forum.

Frontman Jon Bon Jovi gave an inspiring acceptance speech on behalf of the band, which  was posted on March 11 at iHeartRadio's YouTube channel. Along with collecting the prestigious award, the legendary New Jersey rockers also performed their 2000 single "It's My Life" and their 1986 hit "You Give Love a Bad Name."

In his acceptance speech, the charismatic singer thanked his legions of fans both old and new for their continued support. The “Livin' on a Prayer” hitmaker also passed along some words of wisdom to up and coming rockers, advising them to “stay true to who you are.” Fans can check out the award ceremony above.
“The only advice I'll tell this incredible generation of incredible talent is just stay true to who you are,” said Jon Bon Jovi during his speech.  “They're gonna make you guys icons too someday."

The expanded version of This House Is Not For Sale features two new songs and is available here in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans can check out the official video for their newly release single “When We Were Us” here.

Bon Jovi will launch the 2018 North American leg of their This House Is Not For Sale Tour on March 14 in Denver at Pepsi Center and will be inducted into the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony to be held April 14 in Cleveland at Public Auditorium by Howard Stern.
