MTV announced on Tuesday that the 2021 Video Music Awards will take place live/ in-person on Sept. 2 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.  The 2021 VMAs will return to the Barclays Center after the 2020 show, hosted by Keke Palmer, took place across various locations in New York City due to the coronavirus pandemic.

MTV said on Twitter alongside a new logo for the event, which features the show’s signature Moonman mascot:  “Countdown to the 2021 #VMAs starts NOW.”  MTV will be broadcasting the 2021 edition in over 175 countries, will celebrate the return of live entertainment and honor the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The network said presenters and performers will be announced at a future date.
