Mary J. Blige's Statue of Liberty concert will be broadcast as a 40-foot hologram on Governor's Island.
As if Mary J. Blige's concert underneath the Statue of Liberty this weekend didn't sound cool enough, her performance will now be broadcast as a 40-foot hologram on Governor's Island across the NYC harbor.
Mary J.'s performance is an installment of the Made in America Monument Series. Budweiser is advertising the Governor's Island event as "a night of burgers, beers, giveaway, and live performances from Big Gigantic, T-Pain, and Misterwives." Both events are free and you can apply for tickets here provided that you are 21+. Admission includes round-trip ferry transportation.
Frankly the Governor's Island event sounds infinitely cooler. T-Pain + 40-foot hologram of Mary J. > Statue of Liberty + actual Mary J.
