T-Mobile New Year's at the Needle

This year's celebration burst through the screen with a never-before-seen virtual spectacular!

The Space Needle ushered in 2021 with a sensational and innovative new show for T-Mobile New Year’s at the Needle. This year’s celebration featured striking visuals in a wondrous display of digital effects, engineered to bring viewers bigger thrills than ever before – all safely from the comfort of home.

Using sky-mapping technology and real video footage, the Space Needle was layered with immersive, digital artistic expressions to create an illusion of color and wonder. In reality, the tower was lit in T-Mobile’s distinctive magenta color, but on the screen, viewers were dazzled by a virtual spectacular surrounding the Space Needle and the skies above.

There were no in-person festivities and no events at Seattle Center on New Year's Eve - the show could only be seen on your screen!
