New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams (D) will be sworn in as the city’s mayor at the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration, The New York Times reported.

Adams in a statement Wednesday shared his excitement to be sworn in as the city’s 110th mayor during the event, where musical acts KT Tunstall, Chlöe and Journey will perform. 

A city clerk will swear in Adams using the mayor-elect’s family Bible and he will take office on Saturday in the middle of Times Square, according to The Times. 

“Times Square has long been synonymous with the New Year — a place of excitement, renewal, and hope for the future,” Adams said in a statement. “These are the same themes that animated my campaign and will inform my mayoralty, as I prepare to lead the city out of this challenging period.”
