John Legend, Black Eyed Peas & More Set for ‘Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular’

John Legend, The Black Eyed Peas, Lady A and many more are set to take the stage during NBC’s upcoming 44th annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular.

Hosted by Jane Lynch and Today anchor Craig Melvin, the annual Independence Day event will be broadcast live from New York City. Additional performers confirmed for the telecast ahead of the yearly fireworks display include The Killers, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and national youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman.

Due to concerns over social distancing amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular will look a bit different than it has in years past. This year, the event is being “reimagined as a series of neighborhood shows” through the city’s five boroughs, according to the press release.

To discourage crowds, the fireworks displays will launch unannounced at both land- and water-based locations in the city on select days leading up to the Fourth of July. The telecast will include footage captured of each display from the week, culminating in Saturday night’s (July 4) grand finale.

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular is set to air Saturday (July 4) at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. An encore presentation of the event will follow from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
