"Toronto is one of the first places we had, like, really exciting shows and felt like something crazy might be about to happen," he continued. "And something did. So thanks for being there with us."

Among the other winners at the ceremony, which celebrated its 40th anniversary, were Neil Young who claimed the prize for Artist Of The Year and Adult Alternative Album Of The Year for 2010's 'Le Noise', reports ABC News.
