Events may be affected by Covid-19 protocols!

While Historic Theatre Photos endeavors to ensure event information displayed on our website is kept accurate and updated, however during this volatile time there may be changes to events at theatres which we are not aware of. In particular, proof of vaccination and/or negative Covid-19 test results may be a condition of entry. Some vents may also have been cancelled. You are therefore strongly encouraged to check the status of events directly with the venue and/or event provider.

American Music Awards

American Music Awards

The American Music Awards (AMAs) is an annual American music awards show, generally held in the Autumn/Fall, created by Dick Clark in 1973 for ABC after the network’s contract to air the Grammy Awards expired.

The inaugural AMAs were held at the Aquarius Theater (originally called the Earl Carroll Theatre) in Hollywood. For 1975-79 the AMAs moved to the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, and then were broadcast from ABC Television Center (the Prospect Studios) in Hollywood in 1980 and 1981. From 2007 onwards, the AMAs have been held at the Nokia Theatre (now Microsoft Theater) in downtown Los Angeles.
