The Grammy’s is Heading to NYC and the City is Here For It
The Concrete Jungle will be home to the stars.
In honor of its 60th anniversary, the biggest night in music is returning to New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed that music’s top notch talent will set up shop in NYC for next year’s Grammy’s event on Jan. 28, 2018.
Joined by executives from the Recording Academy, CBS and Madison Square Garden, the New York Mayor shared the following: “There is no better place for Music’s Biggest Night than the world’s greatest city.“Bringing these awards back to the city will allow us to further support and foster the music industry in New York.”

The Staples Center in Los Angeles has been home to the famed event for 17 of the last 18 years, making a one-time stop at Madison Square Garden in 2003. Lucrative is an understatement, as a 2014 study showed the awards provided $82 million in benefits to the City of Stars. But no worries, the Grammy’s are expected to return to L.A. in 2019.
Assuming Beyoncé is not performing, it will never hit the edge-snatching level that her presence provides, however, NYC is shaping up to be a movie. Winter 2018 ain’t looking too shabby after all.
Stay tuned for more info.
