MTV has announced that this year’s Video Music Awards show will return to New Jersey.
The 2022 VMAs will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark on August 28. Last year’s show was broadcast from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
“We are thrilled to be back in New Jersey for this year’s VMAs live from Prudential Center,” Bruce Gillmer, President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events, Paramount and Chief Content Officer, Music, Paramount+, said in a statement.
“New Jersey is honored to once again host the MTV Video Music Awards at one of our many world-class entertainment and sports venues,” said New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the organizers said they are working “hand-in-hand with state and local officials to implement stringent protocols in order to maintain the safety and wellbeing of artists, fans, staff, and partners.”
The 2022 VMAs will air live on MTV in more than 170 countries and territories.
