LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — MTV announced that that the 2017 “MTV Video Music Awards” would return to the greater Los Angeles area when it airs LIVE from the Forum in Inglewood on Sunday, August 27.
“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.
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.
The awards show has alternated between New York and Los Angeles in recent years. Last year, the award show took place at Madison Square Garden, but has also been held at the Microsoft Theater, the Staples Center, and the Nokia Theater in L.A. as well as Barclays Center and Radio City Music Hall in the past decade.
