Hong Kong's Symphony of Lights, where many buildings in the skyline are specially lit up for a coordinated light show every night at 8pm.

Yes, the Symphony of Lights takes place every night. It's a new tourist attraction. On special holidays, buildings also shoot out fireworks.

Pfft..it's an epic event when the crown of the US Bank Tower isn't white.

I want to see that light show before I die.

While the Twins didn't win for the best daytime skyscrapers, seeing them in the nightime made up for it.

To me, the WTC's North Tower Antenna, rising to 1728 ft., made the whole WTC com-plex much more attracitve. So when the topic of spires or no spires comes up, i think we need 2 lists, one with spires/antennas, and one just to the roof, when we are talking about the world's tallest buildings.
