SEATTLE — Ring in 2022 with T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle and the return of a dazzling fireworks show — but with a brand new twist. The audience won’t attend in person, but rather be treated to a first-ever show airing live on KING 5 and KONG or streaming on king5.com and the KING 5 app.
The Space Needle has partnered with multimedia studios and talented digital artists to create the first-ever live fireworks show to be augmented and broadcast live with exclusive special effects that can only be seen on TV, computer or mobile phone. To keep the community safe, event organizers and public officials encourage everyone to “stream in the new year” from home or at watch parties without gathering or creating crowds around the Seattle landmark in support of public health guidance.
KING 5 Evening’s Kim Holcomb, Jim Dever, Angela Poe Russell and Saint Bryan will host the show from T-Mobile Park. Viewers can watch live on KING 5 or KONG, or stream live on king5.com or on the KING 5 app.
“This year’s show will be a stunning and uniquely-blended mixed reality, best seen on your screen,” said Karen Olson, Chief Operating and Marketing Officer at the Space Needle. “We’ve assembled a multi-disciplined team of artists and technologists to create a one-of-a-kind enhanced fireworks presentation with a tightly integrated combination of real and augmented imagery. The show will be magical and playful, filled with images from our neighborhoods, artists, culture, music, and — most importantly — our optimistic future.”
