It’s almost time to ring in the new year, and VR is here to help you welcome 2022 in style. Here’s a rundown of some seasonal ways to celebrate:

Kick off your New Year’s Eve with David Guetta, LIVE from Louvre Abu Dhabi December 31 at 12:00 pm PT in Horizon Venues.

Next, get your free tickets to see EDM duo The Chainsmokers LIVE in Horizon Venues at 7:00 pm PT. Can’t make the live show? Watch one of the two replays later the same night at 9:00 and 11:00 pm PT.

Also in Horizon Venues, you can catch our Always On: New Year’s Eve Fireworks Celebration from 12:00 am PT on December 31 through 12:15 am PT on January 1.

And now through 11:59 pm PT on December 31, enjoy the 2nd Annual iHeartRadio Holiday Special, hosted by Mario Lopez and featuring performances by Kelly Clarkson, Michael Bublé, Train, and Pentatonix.

Next, celebrate the Holidays by the crackling fire with people from around the world. Grab some eggnog, find your friends and family, and meet new folks around a toasty fireplace, located at the Alder Manor in Yonkers, NY.
