Lady A, Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw to perform at Macy’s 4th of July Spectacular


The 44th annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular will not only feature pyrotechnics, but a list of performances from musical acts that include Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Lady A.

The Independence Day broadcast will air live from New York City and be hosted by Today anchor Craig Melvin. Other performances during the two-hour special will include John Legend, the Black Eyed Peas and the Killers.

The star spangled event will conclude with a grand finale fireworks show that will include video from a series of surprise displays from all over New York city’s five boroughs. The surprise displays start June 29 and will end on July 4. Each of these smaller satellite shows will be unannounced on select evenings at one or two land or water-based locations.

Each surprise display will be a brief 5-miute display, but will allow New Yorkers to experience the fireworks without creating a large crowd gathering during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular airs this Saturday, July 4 at 8pm EST on NBC. An encore presentation will follow at 10pm EST.
