MTV is Bringing Back 'Unplugged' (But Did it Ever Really Go Away?)

MTV logoMTV has announced that they are bringing back the popular '90s series 'Unplugged,' the concert series where performers and bands play music without any electronics, in a more cozy, small setting. If I remember correctly it wasn't always electric-free, as if everyone was using acoustic guitars and bongos. I remember electric guitars and keyboards were sometimes used.

The network (along with Starburst) is making a big push with the show on MTV, VH1, and CMT. We'll see concerts with everyone from Adam Lambert and The Script to Reba McIntire and Phoenix. While the network is promoting this as a big "return" for the show, I'm not sure if completely went away. It's not like we haven't seen the show in ten years. Just last year they had 'Unplugged' concerts by people like Adele and Vampire Weekend.

The show will also be seen online at the web sites for the various networks. Earlier this year they dropped the "music" from their logo.
