The 2018 Grammy Awards will take place in New York City — that will be the 60th anniversary of the event, so we expect that the biggest names in all of the music world , along with A – List Celebrities , will be there for this historic and iconic event !
The ceremony will be held Jan. 28 , 2018 at Madison Square Garden, which last hosted the Grammys in 2003, on its 45th anniversary.
The big Pre- Grammy Concert Dinner Gala will honor Fleetwood Mac as The 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year , at Radio City Music Hall , on Jan. 26 , 2018 – which is only about a mile North from The Garden.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said : “We welcome the Grammy Awards back to New York City with open arms and we look forward to continuing to partner with a music industry that supports access and empowerment in the arts.”
Grammy CEO Neil Portnow said : “It’s definitely exciting, and for me a little bit nostalgic as well, because my first Grammy Awards after being hired the previous December was the Madison Square Garden show in 2003. . . . . . It also will incur greater expenses because the cost of doing this in New York is extraordinarily higher. That’s just the way it is. As a not-for-profit [organization] we are in the business of being efficient.” Therefore , most people expect the ticket prices will have to be much higher to try and cover all of the greater expenses. Grammy members will be fighting for these tickets , and will pay a pretty penny to obtain them , for this once in-a-lifetime event !
Grammy Producer Ken Ehrlich said : “But there is an excitement to a New York show . . . . Each one has an energy of its own, and it really does get to you. Some of our really great moments have come during shows we did in New York: Aretha Franklin singing ‘Nessun Dorma,’ the first show we did at Radio City Music Hall when Lou Reed sang ‘Walk on the Wild Side.’ I think we can take advantage of both the venue and what New York represents musically.”
