Londen is dit jaar de host van de MTV EMA 2017, zo maakt MTV, onderdeel van Viacom International Media Networks vandaag bekend. Vorig jaar was Rotterdam nog gaststad van één van de grootste internationale muziekavonden. Dit jaar kunnen muziekfans wereldwijd op zondag 12 november 2017 de 24ste editie van de MTV EMA vanuit The SSE Arena, Wembley live op MTV volgen.

“London is arguably the world’s musical epicentre and it’s both a huge privilege and opportunity to bring the MTV EMAs 2017 to the UK’s capital city,” aldus David Lynn, CEO van MTV’s internationale moederbedrijf, Viacom International Media Networks. “The EMA creates an incredible buzz wherever it lands; that will be amplified tenfold in London.”

De burgemeester van Londen, Sadiq Khan, laat weten: "After two decades away, the MTV EMAs are returning to electrify the greatest city in the world once again. It promises to be an absolutely incredible evening, featuring some of the globe's top artists and watched by millions. London is the natural city to host one of the greatest musical shows on earth – with our exceptional musical history, wealth of creative talent and outstanding venues – we're the entertainment capital of the world. Whether you're a musical superstar, Londoner or visitor to the city – London is open to entertain you!”

Bruce Gillmer, uitvoerend producent van de MTV EMA en Executive Vice President, Music, Talent Programming and Events, MTV International, vult aan: “The MTV EMAs are one of the biggest and most unforgettable nights in music globally. We anticipate this year’s event in London will be even bigger and louder than ever before. The city’s incredible musical heritage along with the local fan's robust energy will undoubtedly make this one killer show."

John Drury, VP & General Manager van The SSE Arena, Wembley zegt: “Everyone at the venue and the wider AEG team are delighted that London's first MTV EMAs in 21 years will be at The SSE Arena, Wembley. It's fitting that the world's leading music brand will be working with one of the world's most iconic venues. Wembley's intimate atmosphere will no doubt help to create more special EMAs moments and we can’t wait to welcome them here.”

Het wordt de zesde keer dat het Verenigd Koninkrijk de MTV EMA host. Na Londen in 1996 waren ook Edinburgh (2003), Liverpool (2008), Belfast (2011) and Glasgow (2014) gaststeden.
