NEW YORK: The MTV Video Music Awards will be held on September 12 in New York City, the channel said on Tuesday – the latest news that live entertainment is returning to the city as the pandemic emerges.

MTV has yet to announce which artists will perform at the event, which will be presented to an audience at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Last year, MTV initially announced that the 2020 edition would be held in the same arena before canceling that plan and hosting a scattered behind-the-scenes ceremony with prerecorded musical performances in multiple locations across New York City.

The eligibility period for this year’s videos is July 2020 to June 2021.

Cultural activities are returning to New York as the city reopens following the Covid-19 pandemic, boosted by vaccinations.

Also on Tuesday, Madison Square Garden announced that it will host the first event in front of a large crowd on June 20 since the coronavirus struck in March 2020 – a concert by the Foo Fighters.

Only spectators who can prove they have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed in, the site said.

“We have been waiting for this day for over a year. And Madison Square Garden is going to feel so tough, ”lead singer Dave Grohl said.

On Monday, Bruce Springsteen announced that his hit Broadway show will reopen on June 26, also in front of a vaccinated audience.

And Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the city is planning a big concert in Central Park in August to celebrate the city’s “rebirth” as part of a week-long “back home” event.
