In 2011, Dave Gahan was invited to perform an intimate show and be presented with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award by MusiCares, a non-profit foundation that provides assistance to musicians experiencing financial, personal, or medical crises. The award is presented to musicians in recognition of their devotion to helping other addicts struggling with the recovery process. Gahan had long been an ardent supporter of MusiCares, and in 2007 was notably invited to perform two songs in honour of late Soundgarden lead vocalist Chris Cornell's volunteer work with musicians struggling with addiction. Fellow recovering addict Steven Tyler of Aerosmith presented the award to Gahan.
