NYC Sensation PUi Performs on Top of Apple Billboard in Manhattan -- Draws Impressive Crowd …and Gets Arrested!

New York City natives PUi performed their ‘Army of Slaves’ video filming stunt this past Thursday, October 6th to a stunned and pleasantly surprised crowd of New York City onlookers. The band performed atop a 32nd Street building at the intersection of 6th Ave and Broadway overlooking Herald Square in front of an Apple iPad 2 billboard. PUi performed for 12 minutes, playing their tracks ‘Army of Slaves’ and ‘One’. Over an hour later, the band was lead away in handcuffs in reaction to their surprise stunt.

Lucky onlookers from up to three blocks away stopped to watch the performance, all the while taking pictures and video of the stunt. Drivers stopped their cars at the light on 33rd Street, some leaving their vehicles to turn around and see what all of the ruckus was about. People crossing the street stopped to watch and listen. You can watch a fan-filmed video at this location.

Due to the impressive crowd reaction, PUi expects to see amazing video footage come in for the making of the ‘Army of Slaves’ video.
