“THE WHO — MILES OVER VEGAS” NEW VIVA VISION SHOW DEBUTS AT FREMONT
Fremont Street Experience debuted its newest Viva Vision show “The Who
— Miles Over Vegas” on Thursday, Nov. 14. The new light and sound show
is built around the music of legendary rock band The Who and includes
three of the band’s most iconic songs — “I Can See for Miles,”
“Pinball Wizard” and “My Generation” — custom synced to stunning
graphics including live music footage, album art, performance footage
and more. Viva Vision shows air nightly and are free to the public.
“We are excited at the opportunity to collaborate with one of rock’s
most iconic bands for this new Viva Vision show and the end result is
sure to turn heads to the sky for an unparalleled visual experience,”
said Jeff Victor, President at Fremont Street Experience.
The new Viva Vision show starts with “I Can See for Miles,” taking the
viewer on a journey through the cosmos, eventually landing in Las
Vegas. From there the screen, which is the world’s largest video
screen and spans five football fields, is transformed into a giant
pinball machine as balls roll up and down the street, reflecting the
street scene below in “Pinball Wizard” and ends with a musical
celebration set to pop-art graphics with “My Generation.”
Coinciding with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, the new show will be
featured now through Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. with bonus shows at
1 a.m. on Nov. 15 and 16. Beginning Nov. 18, The Who — Miles Over
Vegas will air nightly at 10 p.m. as part of the ongoing Viva Vision
The new show was announced earlier this year during a joint press
conference with lead singer, Roger Daltrey and Fremont Street
Experience President Jeff Victor. During the press conference Victor
also presented Daltrey with a $5,000 donation to Teen Cancer America,
a charity inspired by Daltrey and fellow band-mate Pete Townshend.
Viva Vision features nightly free customized light shows synced to
smash hits from legendary bands including: Bon Jovi — Wanted in Vegas
, A Tribute to Queen , The Doors — Strange Days in Vegas and Heart —
Crazy on Vegas. The LED display canopy rises 90 feet in height and
stretches 1,500 feet along the Fremont Street Experience promenade
from Main Street to Fourth Street. Within the canopy are 12.5 million
LED lights and 208 speakers producing 550,000 watts of concert-quality
