MTV, made the big announcement that the loudest and at times, the most controversial, annual live celebration of music, is set to makeits triumphant return to the west coast when it airs LIVE from the Forum in Inglewood, CA on Sunday, August 24th. This year’s VMAs will have the distinction of being the first major award show to ever take place at the historic “Fabulous” Forum.

The “Fabulous” Forum reopened in January 2014 following a comprehensive reinvention which has resulted in a world-class entertainment venue that bridges its iconic past with today’s state-of-the-art technology and amenities. The reinvention of the Forum has created the largest and most important indoor performance venue in the country designed with a focus on music and entertainment.New amenities include: a completely modernized arena bowl with superior acoustics; approximately 8,000 square feet of new event level hospitality offerings; lavish new VIP clubs; a 40,000 square foot outdoor terrace; and seven star-caliber dressing rooms as well as a return to the venue’s original exterior color now officially known as “Forum red.” Since its re-opening in January, the Forum has hosted some of the biggest names in music and entertainment including a sold-out, six-night residency by the Eagles, Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons, Paul Simon & Sting and Kings of Leon.

Since opening in 1967,Forum was the home court for the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship teamsand has hosted some of the greatest musical performers of all time, including The Rolling Stones, Eagles, The Jackson 5, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Madonna, Van Halen, The Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Prince and many others.

Since the first “MTV Video Music Awards” aired in 1984, the VMAs instantly earned its reputation for delivering the most popular bands and artists to create the loudest, most influential and at times, the most controversial, annual live celebration of music in the world. No other award show has been responsible for creating more memorable or bigger musical moments in pop culture history than theMTV Video Music Awards.
