On August 26th, 9 p.m. ET/PT, the 2019 VMAs will
take place in Prudential Center, Newark,NJ.
This info was published in Twitter’s 2019 NewFronts
presentation at New York music venue Terminal 5.
We also got a new feature that will be presented in the VMA’s
– MTV VMA Stan Cam – now everyone who watches will have full control over their
viewing experience via shortform streams on Twitter.
Bruce Gillmer, the VMA’s executive producer said – “New
Jersey has an incredible music heritage and is home to some of the world’s
biggest artists including ‘Chairman of the Board’ Frank Sinatra, ‘The Boss’
Bruce Springsteen, Queen Latifah, Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, the Jonas
Brothers, the Fugees and Halsey — the list is wide and endless… Now the
moonperson plants its flag to celebrate all that New Jersey has given to music
fans around the globe.”
The location that was selected – Prudential Center – was opened
back in 2007. It became a place that every touring artist make a stop when they
tour in the NY area.
Usually the VMA’s takes place in New York, LA, Miami (twice)
and Vegas (one time).
Scott O’Neil, Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment’s
CEO said –
“We are thrilled to welcome the music and entertainment
industry’s brightest stars to Prudential Center, the City of Newark, and the
State of New Jersey…..We look forward to continuing to tell the story of this
world renown venue and the positive change it has generated through music and
entertainment in Newark and across the State of New Jersey.”
