“We are thrilled to partner with the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee to produce this incredible spectacle that will officially launch Super Bowl week for the very first time in our own backyard,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Macy’s own signature fireworks display will cap off an exciting show featuring fantastic musical performances. The Kickoff Spectacular promises to be an extraordinary start to the weeklong party, culminating with Super Bowl XLVIII.”

Ending the evening with a big bang, the world-famous Macy’s Fireworks will set the sky ablaze with an unparalleled display of pyrotechnic firepower. Expertly choreographed to an energetic soundtrack featuring songs from top music stars including Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars, Lady GaGa and more; the 13-minute spectacle will be fired from two barges on the Hudson River off the shores of Liberty State Park.
