LOS ANGELES It looks like MTV is indeed taking its Video Music Awards show to Los Angeles, as we previously reported, but not to the venue we originally named.
While our previous report suggested a move to the Shrine might be in the works for this year, we now hear that another venue has been selected. We also hear that the network will make a formal announcement on the decision next week, perhaps as early as Monday.
The move marks the VMAs’ first L.A. stop in a decade (the event took over the Gibson Amphitheatre in 1998). The show took over multiple areas within the Palms in Las Vegas last year.
