Enrique Iglesias and Zac Brown Band have been added to the lineup for the "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular," which will air Friday, July 4 (8 p.m.), with an encore presentation at 10 p.m. highlighting the second hour of the special.
Iglesias and Zac Brown Band join the event's previously announced performers, including country music superstars Hunter Hayes and Miranda Lambert, as well as chart-toppers Ariana Grande and Lionel Richie. The two-hour special is hosted by Nick Cannon of NBC's "America's Got Talent."
"Macy's 4th of July Fireworks are a one-of-a-kind spectacle that will once again inspire audiences nationwide as we illuminate the shores of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn with stunning effects, color and sound," said Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy's 4th of July fireworks. "We are thrilled to be working with our partners in the City of New York to have the magnificent Brooklyn Bridge as our canvas and stunning backdrop for this year's bigger-than life display.
Since 1976, Macy's fireworks have grown in scale and artistry as they burst to life over many of New York City's waterways and neighborhoods. Incorporating landmarks and milestones is a Macy's fireworks signature. Macy's last showcased the Brooklyn Bridge in its fireworks spectacle in 1995. This year's creative presentation of the bridge's renowned architecture will reach new heights of imagination during the 25-minute display.
