U2 Voted 'Best Selling Rock Artist' at the World Music Awards.

The band were named 'Best Selling Rock Artist' at the World Music Awards in Hollywood on Wednesday night.
At the same ceremony, The Killers, who recently supported U2 on some of their European stadium dates, were named Best New Group. U2, who have been on a break before the third leg of Vertigo '05 kicks off in less than a fortnight, were not at the ceremony. Manager Paul McGuinness has said that sales of How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, which went to No.1 in 32 countries, indicate it could eventually become the band's best-selling record. The World Music Awards are based on record sales, certified by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

The WMA's will be televised on ABC September 13th from 9-11.
