MTV Latin Awards Postponed

Published: 2005-10-20
MTV seems to be having horrible luck with hurricanes. Earlier this year the MTV Video Music Awards pre-parties in Miami were quashed because of the effects of Hurricane Katrina, which ripped through the United States' gulf coast.

Now the MTV Latin American Music Awards, which were to take place in Playa del Carmen Mexico on October 18th, are "postponed indefinitely" due to Hurricane Wilma.

"While the eye of the storm is not expected to hit the Mexican Caribbean, we feel its effect is close enough to greatly impact our production," MTV Latin America said in a statement. "Unfortunately, given the magnitude of this event, we could not wait for further developments to make this decision without jeopardizing the creative integrity of the show given the risk of talent cancellations and the dismantling of a production this size. Furthermore, the safety and security of our staff, audience, talent and clients is our top priority."

Performers were to have included Shakira, Ricky Martin, and the Foo Fighters.
