The 60th annual Grammy Awards will take place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018. The telecast will be broadcast live on CBS at a new time: 7:30–11 p.m. ET and 4:30–8 p.m. PT. The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will mark the 46th consecutive year that CBS will broadcast the show, and the network has a commitment in place to host it through 2026.
Most recently, Madison Square Garden hosted the 45th GRAMMY Awards in 2003. Music’s Biggest Night has been broadcast from Staples Center in Los Angeles for the past 14 years.
The Grammy telecast’s return to Madison Square Garden is estimated to bring $200 million in economic benefit to the city.
“Playing host to the music industry’s marquee awards show is a unique creative, artistic and economic boon to the rich cultural fabric of our city,” said NYC mayor Bill de Blasio. “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.”
“MSG has been the site of many of the most legendary and enduring moments in music history — and we think the 2018 Grammys will be a perfect addition to that great legacy,” said James L. Dolan, executive chairman, The Madison Square Garden Company. “We are thankful to Mayor de Blasio and all of those who worked so hard to make this return possible.”
