Macy’s Glamorama 2013 Coming to the State Theatre Friday

Macys Glamorama

This Friday you can experience one of the most fabulous events of the year in Minneapolis and help support Children’s Cancer Research Fund at the same time.  August 2nd is the big  night for Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama 2013 at the State Theatre at 8pm.  The theme this year (the 22nd!) is Fashion In A new Light, with a show headlined by Sheryl Crow.  There will also be a performance by Cirque du Soleil, showcasing its Las Vegas productions, and by Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star contest winner The Summer Set, a five-member punk rock group.

The Fashion In A new Light theme is brought to the stage with sophisticated lighting and visual effects, including the show backdrop made up of Eighty LED panels comprised of more than 725,000 pixels and totaling nearly 500 square feet.  Featured collections will include Jean Paul Gaultier, Philosophy, Rachel Rachel Roy, TALLIA Orange, Tommy Hilfiger, Weekend MaxMara, Diesel, as well as a first look at Macy’s newest Impulse collection, Maison Jules. Makeup and hair by Spalon Montage and Lancôme will complete the looks.

The fun doesn’t stop after the show, but continues at the after-party on the 8th floor of the Macy’s Downtown Minneapolis store. The illuminated party space will feature utra-cool sponsor lounges and guests can interact with fun activities. Delicious culinary creations and special libations accompany a night of dancing to the soundscape of K-Twin 96.3’s DJ Dan.

The event benefits Children’s Cancer Research Fund and their clearly defined goal: to cure childhood cancer. The organization is the largest single contributor to the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center, a world-wide leader in pediatric cancer research. Their support enables researchers to continue their pioneering efforts in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancers. Many discoveries funded by the organization have revolutionized the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Throughout its 22 years, Macy’s Glamorama has contributed nearly $5.0 million to Children’s Cancer Research Fund. For more information, visit
