Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular Live Stream 2016 – Watch Online!
The 2016 “Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular” takes place on Monday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream!
The “spectacular” is now in is 40th year, as Macy’s has sponsored the annual Independence Day event in New York City since 1976. The show will combine both music performances and what is widely considered one of the country’s top fireworks displays. Willie Geist and Tamron Hall of the “Today” show will co-host the festivities.
Scheduled performers include Kenny Chesney, Meghan Trainor and even the Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer. Also celebrating America’s 240th birthday will be DNCE, Pitbull, and Sara Bareilles. The Radio City Rockettes will also make a dance-filled appearance. And Bareilles is expected to sing the “Broadway For Orlando” version of “What The World Needs Now Is Love.”
As for the fireworks, NBC says the 25-minute display will feature more than 50,000 pyrotechnic effects, and mark the New York debut of “pyro-writing.” That entails using fireworks to spell out a message in the night’s sky. The fireworks will be shot off from five different locations, including the East River. Jennifer Holliday and the United States Air Force Band will provide a musical accompaniment.
It’s all slated to get underway at 8 p.m. Eastern. NOTE: Live stream is no longer available.
