The tallest building in the world seems to like to go big. The Burj Khalifa, the soaring 2,716-foot tower in Dubai, started the new year in a massive sound and light show that turned the entire high-rise into a giant fireworks display. A video, which captured the attention of the Web, shows an eye-popping performance that was accompanied by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra playing live on the Burj Steps. Fireworks, which were also set off elsewhere around Dubai, appear around and on top of the skyscraper. Even if you couldn’t afford a $4,300 window-side table at the restaurant on the 122nd floor, aptly named Atmosphere, to catch the show up close, there was plenty to take in from the ground. Close to a million onlookers watched from the street what organizers called “arguably the best display on the planet.”
Absolutely unreal. Have a great 2013 everyone! Cheers!
