On Saturday May 27th the concert landscape of Dowwntown Las Vegas was changed forever as Vince Neil introduced its newest entertainment space by treating fans to a free Memorial Day Weekend Show at Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino (Photo credit: Patrick Gray / Kabik Photo Group / www.KabikPhotoGroup.com).
Set between the two hotel towers, a maximum capacity crowd of nearly 5,000 witnessed 3rd street transform from a bustling corridor of downtown foot traffic to a fully produced street amphitheater complete with lights, staging and of course, SOUND!
The first ever “Rock The Street” weekend celebration was kick-started with a special Blackjack Tournament where 10 lucky ‘rock stars’ got the chance to play one hand against Vince for their chance to win a share of $5,000 in cash. The stage itself was ignited at 8 pm with opening act Todd Kerns & the Anti–Stars and was left ablaze for Vince Neil who delivered almost 90 minutes of non-stop ROCK; including some of Motley Crue’s biggest hits just in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their biggest anthem “Girls, Girls, Girls.”
To ensure no picnics were missed, Freedom Beat served burgers while Hogs & Heffers, Triple George, and Pizza Rock provided street side service to all those in attendance.
