Belfast to host MTV Music Awards

This year's MTV Europe Music Awards will be held in Belfast.

The music channel will hold a series of events in and around the city in the run-up to the awards at the Odyssey Arena in November.

MTV's Antonio Campo Dall'Orto said: "Belfast's vibrant nightlife and compelling music scene, known for fostering emerging artists and turning out international chart toppers, provides the perfect backdrop for one of the world's biggest nights in music.

"The spirit of Belfast combined with our expertise is the perfect foundation for an unforgettable event and unique night."

The awards, which were set up in 1994, have previously featured performances by stars including U2, Take That, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Rihanna, Plan B and Bon Jovi all played at last year's awards in Madrid, which were hosted by actress Eva Longoria.

Lord Mayor of Belfast Pat Convery said the city was "a happening place".

He said: "Belfast has a rich musical history and has produced artists such as Snow Patrol and the legendary Van Morrison and we now have an unprecedented opportunity to shine a spotlight on our musical heritage while also providing a major boost to our economy."
