MTV Reschedules Video Music Awards

MTV has rescheduled its Video Music Awards out of respect for the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The ceremony, which usually takes place the first Thursday in September, has been moved up a week to Aug. 29.

“By bringing together artists, fans and the city’s creative community for MTV’s biggest night of the year, we hope to show our love and support for the place we truly call home every day,” the cable network’s president, Van Toffler, said in a statement Wednesday.

For the fourth straight year, the Video Music Awards will take place in New York, this time at Radio City Music Hall. The show aired live from the Metropolitan Opera House last year.
