MTV plan to air their 2013 "Video Music Awards" live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday, August 25.
The network is billing the event as the 30th anniversary of the show which debuted in 1984 and it will be the first major annual award show to take place in the borough of Brooklyn.
"From a vibrant musical scene for up and coming artists to epic concerts by today's biggest stars and the triumphant return of pro sports to the borough after nearly 60 years, Brooklyn has re-emerged as a cultural capitol where music, sports and entertainment history is made every day," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV.
"We can't wait to help write the next chapter on August 25th, when one of the biggest nights in music happens in Brooklyn
for the very first time."
