Seattle’s “New Year’s at the Needle” to be colored all magenta

This year’s 29th annual “New Year’s at the Needle” is going to take on a very familiar hue as T-Mobile officially sponsors the New Year’s Eve event by lighting up the Space Needle in Seattle. What color? Why, magenta, naturally.

From December 30th through New Year’s Eve, the Needle will take on T-Mobile’s color.

“We are really thrilled to help throw a massive community party in our own backyard with such an important, iconic, global landmark like the Space Needle,” T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a statement. “Just as the Space Needle has represented technology and progress from its inception, T-Mobile’s mission is to push boundaries and provide consumers with great value and innovation. We can’t think of a better local partner to help ring in 2014 and keep breaking the rules.”

As part of the celebration, T-Mobile will also be shining magenta light on to its corporate headquarters in Bellevue for the next two weeks.

      Anyone notice speed is slow outside of city limits? Everywhere?
      Like 80 Kbps down

  • Cjpowers

    It would only be good if they keep t moblies network and cut sprints

  • jared

    Can’t they find someone who’s is interested in posting stuff about tmobile? This site is getting more stale by the day!

    • maximus1901

      I find it odd they hired someone living in UK to write about a US cell carrier.

  • teerain216

    Since tmobile is getting alot of new subscribers a refer a
    friend promo is going to start next year. If a current customer refers someone
    from At&t, sprint or Verizon they will get 100 dollars. The person joining
    will get 100 dollars on a prepaid card.

  • If you’re in Seattle, you can catch the T-Mobile New Years at the Needle fireworks show on KING-5, or elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest on NWCN (NorthWest Cable News). (I’m an engineer at KING/NWCN)

    The fireworks show was great, despite the fog lingering around the Needle. It was special to have this Seattle event sponsored by T-Mobile; a great PR move in my opinion. Kudos to KING-5, too, for an excellent job in covering this annual New Year’s celebration.
