Bon Jovi video show coming to Fremont Street
22 December 2011
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.
