Fremont Street Experience presents the world premiere of “George Thorogood and the Destroyers Bad to the Bone” Viva Vision light and sound show on Saturday, November 15 at 9 p.m. The show premiere is in conjunction with the Scott World Firefighter Combat Challenge Championships, which began earlier this week and conclude with finals competition from 4-9 p.m. Saturday.
“George Thorogood and the Destroyers Bad to the Bone” features two of the band’s greatest hits, “Bad to the Bone” and “Who Do You Love,” and takes the viewer on a wild motorcycle ride through a dusty Vegas boneyard. With a heavy blues influence, George Thorogood and the Destroyers have been rocking audiences for more than 30 years with their heavy riffs and catchy licks.
“We have taken a new direction this year in the creation of new Viva Vision shows,” said Jeff Victor, President of Fremont Street Experience. “We wanted to create shows around rock anthems and involve the artists themselves. The first was ‘A Tribute to Queen’ which premiered in April, then ‘Don McLean’s American Pie’ in July, ‘Born 2 B Wild’ in October, and now ‘George Thorogood and The Destroyers Bad to the Bone.’ These new shows on the world’s largest video screen have become a must-see attraction for all Las Vegas visitors and have increased the nightly crowd enthusiasm on Fremont Street Experience, where there is a party every night.”
Viva Vision®, the LED display canopy rising 90 feet in height and stretching 1,500 feet along the Fremont Street Experience promenade from Main Street to Fourth Street, forms a spectacular foyer for the existing resorts. Stretching the length of nearly five football fields, Viva Vision serves as the showcase for the world’s largest graphic display system. Within the canopy itself are 208 speakers capable of producing 550,000 watts of concert-quality sound.
The Fremont Street Experience is a five-block entertainment complex located in historical downtown Las Vegas. In 1995, Fremont Street was closed to vehicular traffic and a giant screen was suspended 90-feet over the street to display spectacular light and sound shows on its 1,500 foot surface. The 12.5 million lights of the Viva Vision screen dazzle 365 nights a year and make the Fremont Street Experience a one-of-a-kind venue. With direct pedestrian access to 10 casinos, more than 60 restaurants, specialty retail and free nightly entertainment, the Fremont Street Experience attracts over 18 million annual visitors.
