Kicking off the new year, the broadcast took place in New York, Los Angeles and, for the first time, New Orleans and Las Vegas.
The broadcast of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve was the final event in FansTang's 2016 live events portfolio, which also included the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles, the Golden Globes Awards in Beverly Hills, the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, the Rock in Rio Music Festival in Lisbon Portugal, the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles and the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.
