MTV has announced the 2023 Video Music Awards will return to New Jersey’s Prudential Center on September 12th.
The show will air in 150 countries. Additional details will be announced closer to the show.
“We’re thrilled to be returning to the Prudential Center in Newark for this year’s VMAs!” shared Bruce Gillmer, President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events, Paramount and Chief Content Officer, Music, Paramount+.
He added, “Celebrating one of our biggest nights in music with the Garden State’s incredible fans has been our goal since last year’s highly successful event.”
Last year’s show was hosted by Nicki Minaj and featured performances from Bad Bunny, Anitta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem and Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, Blackpink, J Balvin, Lizzo, Jack Harlow, and more.
“Awarding Newark as host city for the 2023 VMAs echoes not only our selection by MTV in 2022 and 2019, but also reverberates our city’s historic vibe as a hotbed of musical genius,” said Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka. “Starting with America’s first known composer in 1759, through the jazz explosion in the 1920s, and up to today’s full spectrum of genres from hip hop to opera, Newark has long served as America’s turntable for harmonic expression.”
He continued, “The relevance of the Video Music Awards rising up today from the same city that registered the film and video industry’s first nitrocellulose patent is not lost on me as Newark continues to sit squarely at the crossroads of motion picture and music.”
