Laser Light Show To Illuminate The Shard
2012 07 04

By M@ | Londonist.com

External completion of Western Europeís tallest building will be officially celebrated on 5 July, and with quite a light show. Make sure you can see the Shard at 10.15pm, when 12 lasers and 30 searchlights will illuminate the landmark. The spectacle will be streamed live via the Shardís website and Facebook page for those who arenít in town.

In what could be interpreted as either a show of supremacy or fraternalism, the 309-metre-tall building will send out coloured lasers to 15 of Londonís less lofty landmarks, including the Gherkin, London Eye and Tower Bridge. The effulgent extravaganza will be soundtracked by Aaron Coplandís Fanfare for the Common Man and the Finale from Stravinskyís Firebird Suite, performed live by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tickets to ascend the tower will go on sale the following day, although the viewing platform wonít be ready until February 2013. More details on prices and booking soon.
