Huh? Did I miss something?
MTV’s Video Music Awards will be broadcast from the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn live on August 30th. Gov. Andrew Cuomo knows about and is thrilled.
Is the pandemic over? I am really confused.
I wouldn’t go to this event without the pandemic, frankly. It’s usually like a three train crash spectacle. But I guess the kids love it. And why not crowd into the Barclays Center? By August 30th, heck, the whole thing will be a distant memory.
Read the small print: “The health and safety of artists, fans, industry, staff, and partners is of the utmost importance. Show producers alongside Barclays Center management have been working closely with state and local officials to implement best practices for everyone involved. Among the measures all parties involved have aligned to include extensive social distancing procedures, meaningful capacity limitations, the virtualization of components where possible, and limited capacity or no audience. Details and potential options to come at a later date based on the science and data in New York. Barclays Center and ViacomCBS are unequivocally committed to ensuring that the show does not compromise the health and safety of anyone involved in the event.”
Official sponsors of the 2020 “MTV Video Music Awards” include Burger King®, Coors Light, and EXTRA® Gum– all of whom will offer branded thermometers, masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer to the guests.
