News from Vegas

Bon Jovi video show coming to Fremont Street

Vegas, Inc has the scoop:

The Fremont Street Experience is getting a new video show starring Jon Bon Jovi for the new year.

“Bon Jovi’s Cosmic Concert” will premiere at 10:45 p.m. New Year’s Eve on the Viva Vision screen, Fremont Street’s 90-by-1,500-foot LED canopy.

A digital spaceship will drop members of the band onto the jumbo overhead screen as three classic Bon Jovi songs play — “It’s My Life,” “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” and “Livin’ on a Prayer.” The canopy will flash images of the musicians performing as the music blares.

Bon Jovi himself selected the three featured songs, Fremont Street Experience officials said.

Starting Jan. 1, the show will become a regular part of the Fremont Street entertainment rotation. It will play nightly at 8 p.m., sandwiched between Don McLean’s “American Pie” and the Doors’ “Strange Days in Vegas.” Every hour nightly from 6 p.m. to midnight, the canopy displays a video show set to music from various bands.

New Year’s Eve will transform Fremont Street into “TributePalooza,” a 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. celebration featuring music from Steel Panther, Rock Sugar and 10 tribute bands. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman will host a midnight countdown, followed by a fireworks show.

The Fremont Street Experience is typically free and open to all ages, but tickets for New Year’s Eve party will cost $30 and be restricted to people 21 or older.
The Fremont Street Experience is located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas on the historic street that started it all. The world-famous, one-of-a-kind entertainment venue is home to Viva Vision, the biggest big screen on the planet. More than 12 million lights in the Viva Vision canopy and 550,000 watts of concert quality sound pumped to speakers throughout the venue produce an incredible array of eye-popping imagery and heart pounding music. Viva Vision shows appear nightly on the hour beginning at dusk and are free and open to the public. The giant LED screen towers 90-feet above a pedestrian mall lined with unique retail shopping kiosks and two permanent performance stages. Ten legendary casinos line Fremont Street Experience with more than 60 restaurants and thousands of loose slots. Free concerts, special events, and roaming street performers entertain the nearly 17 million visitors who come to experience the vintage Vegas attraction each year.

Yet one more place now that Mr. Hath won't go on vacation for fear of seeing Bon Jovi against his will.
