Empire State Building And iHeartMedia Inspire With A New Music-To-Light Show Set To A Mashup Of Iconic Songs From The Beatles
The Empire State Building (ESB) and iHeartMedia today announced a weekend break for New York City -- a rock and roll midnight music-to-light show featuring The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)" and "A Day in the Life," premiering Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12 at 12:00 a.m.
iHeartMedia's Q104.3, New York's Classic Rock, also available on the iHeartRadio app, will broadcast the songs live while ESB's world-famous tower lights play a brand-new show designed and executed by its resident lighting artist, Marc Brickman.
"Some people need a break, a chance to sing out loud and shake off the stress of the week. We encourage everyone at home, First Responders, and people around the world to look outside and have a moment of fun," said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman and CEO of ESRT.
"In moments like these, it's important that New Yorkers continue to stand united and support and encourage each other," said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. "We are excited to give our resilient city something to look forward to this weekend as we once again partner with New York's most iconic building with a synchronized music-to-light show, this time on our New York classic rock station, Q104.3."
