    This is a highly interactive show where both the in-studio and

    really fill the house on this special occasion and represent our community

    All of the prime seating in the "central Pod", a three-tiered
    cushion/couch area that seats about 45, will be reserved for
    vegetarians, friends of T.A.R.S., the Toronto Vegetarian
    etc. They also have room for a couple of hundred in the balcony

    The audience is asked to arrive between 5:30pm & 5:45pm at The
    Temple (one of Canada's most legendary music venues) which is
    at 888
    Yonge (just North of Bloor at Davenport). The show starts
    taping at
    6:30 pm and wraps at 7:30.

    Here's how you book your free tickets;

    wow, it's awesome that MTV is doing that! i'm actually quite surprised that they would observe world vegan day on the show. i haven't heard anything about the US MTV doing any such thing...

    Actually they have a live tv show that airs once a week, i think. It is called
    MTV LIVE. Everything is live. They usually have musical guest speakers or TV personalities, but sometimes they cover "issues". Once they did an episode on alcoholism and included audience feedback, web feedback, phone calls and interviews of just regular people. it was really cool.

    I remember watching an episode of MTV Live where they had that singer Ciara on, and a fan asked her "in honour of vegan day, we were just wondering what your boots were made of?" or something to that effect, and Ciara clearly didnt know what a vegan was and she said "oh, they're a nice suede" and stroked her boots.... I was embarrassed for her.

    I think one of the MTV hosts, the redhead (Jessi?), is a vegetarian.

    Yeah I remember that. I am sitting just behind her on her right. Everyone was rolling their eyes. I guess she's used to people asking her what designer she is wearing all the time, obviously either wasn't listening or it was a good cover. I don't think anyone told her it was World Vegan Day and it is obvious since they cut out all their dialogue from their episode. : (
