MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS ANNOUNCE 2005 VENUE

And the city which will host the bash is…

The MTV EUROPE music awards will be held in the Portuguese city of LISBON in 2005.

The event will take place at the Pavilhao Atlantico on November 3 and follows this year’s celebration in Rome which saw OutKast win big.

MTV CEO Brent Hansen said: “We chose Lisbon because it’s a young city and because MTV Portugal has been performing so well and with such enthusiasm.”

Sting, Alicia Keys and [a][/a] also recently visited Lisbon for the six-day Rock In Rio festival which attracted nearly 385,000 fans.

Previous cities which have hosted the awards include Edinburgh and Barcelona.
