60th Annual Grammy Awards to Take Place in NYC

For the first time since 2003, Music’s Biggest Night will take place in New York City!

Music’s Biggest Night will be celebrated on the East Coast for the first time in 15 years! The Grammy Awards haven’t take place in New York City since 2003. Instead, they have been held in Los Angeles. But on January 28, 2018, Madison Square Garden will play host to the biggest names in music and to the 60th anniversary of the Grammy Awards.

It’s an exciting time for New York City, both in terms of the honor of hosting the event and for the economic boom it will bring the city. Estimates say that the Grammy’s will bring $200 million in economic benefits—and that doesn’t include the additional tourism.

While only a lucky few will be able to score tickets to the actual event, several Grammy-related NYC events will take place, including VIP parties, for which tickets are currently available. One example is Grammy’s VIP Open Bar & After Party for VH1 Save the Music by Rich Valdes. Attendees will enjoy Red Carpet access, a 3-hour open bar, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, and live performances both during the awards shows, which will be telecast live, and during the after party. Tickets for this event are $75-$100.

Estimates say that the Grammy’s will bring $200 million in economic benefits—and that doesn’t include the additional tourism.

The agreement for NYC to host the Grammy’s is just for one year, and the awards show will go back to Los Angeles for at least the next few years. It is unknown when Music’s Biggest Night might again be an NYC Event, but for this year, our City will roll out the red carpet with the whole world watching!


Grammy-related NYC events will take place throughout the city.
