The performance by the groundbreaking Grammy Award-winning pair will lead up to a midnight countdown and the biggest NYE fireworks display in the state.
“Famously Hot New Year is one of Columbia, South Carolina’s favorite traditions, serving as a time to celebrate our community with friends, neighbors, and visitors from near and far.”
