Kenny Chesney Among Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular Performers
If you make it a tradition to watch the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular every year, this year’s line-up is definitely going to make you want to stay inside to watch the fireworks.
People.com reports that Kenny Chesney will be among the performers at the 40th annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular in New York City, joining Meghan Trainor and boy band du jour 5 Seconds of Summer. The Spectacular will be broadcast live in a two-hour telecast on NBC on July 4.
In addition to performances from Chesney, Trainor and 5 Seconds of Summer, Dreamgirls star Jennifer Holliday and the United States Air Force Band will perform a 25-minute score synchronized with the massive fireworks display. This year’s show will feature more than 56,000 individual fireworks.
Last year’s Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular also featured some of country’s heaviest hitters – including Dierks Bentley, Rodney Atkins and Brad Paisley. Trainor also performed last year, alongside Kelly Clarkson and Flo Rida. In keeping with last year, the visual and musical extravaganza will be hosted by Today co-hosts Tamron Hall and Willie Geist.
The Macy‘s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular airs Monday, July 4 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
