GLAMORAMA 2013: FASHION IN A NEW LIGHT

STARRING SHERYL CROW AND FEATURING A LIVE PERFORMANCE BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL




WHAT:         Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama 2013 welcomes nine-time Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crow to this year’s event. Crow received widespread acclaim when she exploded into the music scene with her seven-times platinum debut album, “Tuesday Night Music Club” and continued her success with the release of seven studio albums each charting Top 10 and four albums hitting platinum-plus. Her current chart-climbing hit single, "Easy" is off her forthcoming new album due out this September. To date, Sheryl Crow has sold more than 35 million records worldwide.

Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 100 million spectators in over 40 countries on six continents. The group of more than 1,000 performers is known for its high-quality artistic entertainment that aims to invoke the imagination and provoke the senses. Featuring eight unique shows in Las Vegas and one in Orlando, Cirque du Soleil will showcase its Las Vegas productions at Macy’s Glamorama this year.

Macy’s Glamorama is an hour-long high-end fashion show and musical production that not only unveils the latest fashions from the hottest designers, but also showcases heart-stopping dance, lush visuals, staging as well as incredible musical performances by chart-topping artists. Returning again to the State Theatre, this year’s theme is “Fashion in a New Light.” Past musical performers have included Bruno Mars, Far East Movement, Cyndi Lauper, Pussycat Dolls, Robin Thicke, Karmin and more. The evening concludes with an over-the-top after-party at Macy’s Downtown Minneapolis. The event will once again benefit Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF.)
