This year's MTV EMA'S were hosted in Amsterdam at the Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam's recently built 17,000-seat indoor arena, which opened in June 2012. The venue proved to be a big success both visually and acoustically.
The show was hosted by Redfoo and featured performances from Bruno Mars, Icona Pop, Katy Perry, Kings of Leon, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, The Killers and Imagine Dragons. Eminem received the Global Icon Award and then performed two of his new songs.
Britannia Row Productions have been providing the sound for the EMA's since 1996. The first show for BRP was hosted by Robbie Williams, another long standing project of ours!
