Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. and iHeartMedia officially announced a Halloween “treat” with the annual Empire State Building (ESB) Halloween music-to-light show. The iconic landmark will synchronize its world-famous LED tower lights to spooky Halloween hits, broadcast on iHeartMedia’s powerhouse radio stations Z100 and 103.5 KTU and via the iHeartRadio app at 6:45 p.m. and 10.pm. on Saturday, October 31, 2015. Renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman will choreograph the display to a soundtrack including fan favorites from previous Halloween shows as well as new additions “Disturbia” by Rihanna, “E.T.” by Katy Perry and The Addams Family theme song.
The stunning presentation will be visible to trick-or-treaters, revelers and tourists along New York’s Greenwich Village 42nd annual Halloween parade route, as well as from various vantage points around New York City and the Tri-State area. A video of the entire show will be posted on the Empire State Building’s YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/esbnyc) right after the show for fans around the world to enjoy. Fans can use the hashtag #ESBoo on social media channels to join in the excitement.

Malkin, Chairman and CEO of ESRT. “ESRT and iHeartMedia’s music-to-light shows are must-see annual spectaculars that define the holidays and special occasions in New York City and around the world.”
