MTV Video Music Awards no longer to be held at Barclays Center

The MTV VMAs (Video Music Awards) 2020, which were to be held at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York on 30th August 2020, making it the first event to be held ever since the outbreak of COVID-19, will no longer be held there.

The 37th annual ceremony will now orchestrate a series of outdoor performances at various iconic locations across the city throughout various boroughs to honor the spirit and resilience of New York with limited or no audience as per the order from Gov. Cuomo regarding pandemic protocols.

“In close consultation with state and local health officials?, it became clear at this time that outdoor performances with limited or no audience would be more feasible and safer than an indoor event,” said an MTV statement.

MTV will continue to work closely with the Department of Health, state and local officials, the medical community, and key stakeholders to ensure the safety of all involved.”

MTV announced on Thursday that the show would be hosted live by Keke Palmers.
