I'm using \documentclass{amsart}. In the tex file, before \maketitle I write \date{22th october 2012}, and then I obtain "Date: 22th october 2012." as a result.

Using \date, I want it to print "London, 22th october 2012.". How can I do that?

I tried \renewcommand{\date}, but maybe the right thing to do is to change \the@date.

You can redefine \datename to suppress the string "Date:"



\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\date{London, 22th october 2012}
