Those hoping to hear tracks such as Push It and Stupid Girl played again can get tickets for the international music event for free through the MTV website,

Eduardo Lebrija, general director of VIMN The Americas, Mexico, said: "We are excited to have Garbage at the MTV World Stage Monterrey - Mexico. They are definitely part of the global rock elite and this line-up ensures a night full of rock, which will be remembered in Mexico for many years."

Marc Zimet, vice president of music and talent for VIMN The Americas, said Garbage had a strong fan-base in the country and described the band as "a force on stage."

Linkin Park will also play at the event.
