The MTV Video Music Awards will return to New York City in September after the 2020 show was moved due to the pandemic.
Thanks to increased safety measures, the 2021 show will air live on MTV from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on September 12, just as concerts return throughout the rest of the United States.
The date of the show falls one day after the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Ahead of the show, MTV will team up with the 9/11 Day nonprofit on events designed to “promote awareness and action” in honor of the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
“MTV and Barclays Center are working closely with state and local officials to implement best practices and execute a screen-breaking spectacle that brings together music fans from around the globe with the health and safety of our artists, fans, staff and partners remaining the No. 1 priority,” the organizers said in a press release.
