The MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards is moving to the Live Nation-managed Wembley Arena for its Oct. 15 2008 ceremony, after being staged at London's O2 Arena last year.

The awards were launched in 1996 and last year's winners included Ne-Yo, Kanye West, Amy Winehouse and Dizzee Rascal. The show will be broadcast in 75 countries and digital station BBC Three will screen the ceremony live, with a highlights show to follow on BBC One.

"We're absolutely delighted that MOBO has selected Wembley Arena to be the venue for this year's most exciting MOBO Awards Show ever," said Live Nation U.K. president Paul Latham in a statement.

Nominations for the awards will be announced next month and tickets to the event go on sale Aug. 27. Western Union will again be the headline sponsor of the awards.
