Grammy Awards Going to New York, Again

September 09, 1997|Associated Press

The Grammy Awards will take place in New York City in 1998 for the second consecutive year--a victory for the Big Apple over Los Angeles in the annual rivalry to host the show, officials said Monday. The awards--to be broadcast live by CBS--will take place Feb. 25 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, according to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. "We have such great friends in this town," Michael Greene, the academy's president, said at City Hall. "And these great friends have really solidified something that Los Angeles has a very hard time doing." Since 1978, the show has been held at either the 6,300-seat Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles or in New York. Last year, the awards were presented at 20,000-seat Madison Square Garden but it's moving back to the more intimate music hall, which seats 6,000.
