The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards will be coming to Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center on August 26th for the first time ever. This will mark the first time that the awards show will be held in New Jersey, the award show originally started back in 1984 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY.

The MTV Video Music Awards have been hosted around the world including in cities like New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas.

“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,” said VMAs exec producer Bruce Gillmer, who is also global head of music and talent at Viacom and co-brand head for MTV International. “Now the moonperson plants its flag to celebrate all that New Jersey has given to music fans around the globe.”

“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,” said Scott O’Neil, CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment. “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.”

Although there is no official announcement on whom will be hosting the award ceremony or who is performing and such yet, it is known where the event will be held in New Jersey.
