All proceeds raised from the auction will go to the Staying Alive Foundation, an organisation whose mission is to encourage, energize, and empower young people who are involved in HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention campaigns.
"We are extremely pleased that viagogo is raising funds for the Staying Alive Foundation as it celebrates its tenth anniversary," commented Georgia Arnold, Senior Vice President, Social Responsibility, MTV Networks International. "The money raised through the auction will make a significant contribution to our projects around the world that work with young people who are involved in HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention."
This year's event will take place at the Echo Arena Liverpool, Liverpool on Thursday 6th November. It's set to be one of the great musical celebrations of 2008 as well as a highlight of Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture.
The winners of the auction will be treated to a star studded evening, with fantastic live performances and 11 award categories, including Most Addictive Track, Best Act Ever and Video Star.
This is the 15th MTV Europe Awards and Liverpool is the third UK city to host the awards, following Edinburgh (2003) and London (1996). Last year's awards in Munich saw live performances from Foo Fighters, Mika, Avril Lavigne and Amy Winehouse. In 2007 the MTV Europe Music Awards - broadcast on 19 channels across Europe as well as across the US and Asia - reached a total television audience of over 30 million people.
Eric Baker, CEO of viagogo said: "viagogo is delighted to be able to auction tickets for this year's MTV Europe Music Awards, particularly as it's for such a good cause. On viagogo we provide fans with guaranteed tickets to all the best live events, so it's great that we can extend this to what's sure to be one of the musical highlights of the year."
