2017 “MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS” RETURNS TO THE WEST COAST

LIVE FROM THE FORUM ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 27, 2017 AT 8:00 P.M. ET/PT

 

 

 New York, NY (April 20, 2017) – MTV, a unit of Viacom Inc., announced that the 2017 “MTV Video Music Awards” will return to the greater Los Angeles area when it airs LIVE from the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, CA on Sunday, August 27 at 8:00 P.M. ET/PT.

“The City of Inglewood welcomes the return of the MTV VMAs to the number 1 concert venue in California, the Forum,” said Mayor James Butts.  “Once again, Madison Square Garden set the standard for both East and West Coasts.”

“MTV, at 35 years old, has been around almost as long as the Forum. Together, we’re 85 and enjoy lifetimes of music history,” said Shelli Azoff, Managing Partner for the Forum. “This year is sure to be another epic show with many incredible memories for MTV, the award winners, and especially the fans. The entire Forum family is thrilled to welcome back the VMAs!”

Throughout history, some of music and culture’s biggest breakthroughs have come to life during West Coast VMA broadcasts – from the invasion of the iconic Paramount Pictures studio lot to Linkin Park’s explosive performance at Griffith Observatory, Beyoncé’s jaw-dropping baby bump reveal at Nokia Theater and the live music festival featuring Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell and Demi Lovato in Los Angeles’ historic Broadway Theater District. The telecast was previously held at the “Fabulous” Forum in 2014 and featured iconic performances including Beyoncé’s feminist anthem, Usher, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift and more.

Jesse Ignjatovic returns as Executive Producer for the 2017 “MTV Video Music Awards.” Bruce Gillmer, Garrett English and Lee Lodge are Executive Producers. Melanie Block serves as Executive In Charge of Production. Amani Duncan is Music Executive in Charge. Wendy Plaut is Celebrity Talent Executive in Charge.
