This year’s MTV Video Music Awards will be taking place in Brooklyn, a first for the awards show. The 2013 MTV VMAs will be broadcast live from the Barclays Center.
MTV took to social media to make the announcement. They began posting a series of eight photos early this morning, chronicling the Moonman’s journey from last year’s venue, the Staples Center in Los Angeles, to the Barclay’s Center.
“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,” Stephen Friedman, president of MTV said in a statement.
The MTV Video Music Awards have generally taken place in Los Angeles and Manhattan, with two show’s in Miami and one stint in Las Vegas.
The 2013 VMA’s will broadcast live on August 25 on MTV.
