FREMONT STREET EXPERIENCE TO HOST LUAU WOW! FESTIVAL FEATURING A FREE CONCERT BY DANCEHALL/REGGAE ICON SHAGGY
Everyone Gets Lei’d on Saturday, June 11 at Fremont Street Experience’s inaugural Luau WOW!
On Saturday, June 11, Fremont Street Experience will host its inaugural Luau WOW! FESTIVAL. The free event will bring an exciting luau-themed party to the ninth island with live entertainment, music, food, art and much more Hawaiian fun, including a free full-length concert from two-time Grammy award-winning artist, Shaggy.
In true Fremont Street fashion, the authentic luau experience will feature free live entertainment throughout the entire event. Dancehall/reggae icon, Shaggy will conclude the luau with a free concert beginning at 9 p.m. on the 3rd Street Stage, where he will perform his classic hits “It Wasn’t Me,” “Boombastic” and “Angel,” among others, as well as songs off his new album, Com Fly Wid Mi, which finds Shaggy singing the Sinatra songbook in a reggae style. In addition to the performance by Shaggy, luau-goers can also see concerts by two Hawaiian themed local Las Vegas acts, HaleAmanO and The BC project.
In addition to the nonstop musical entertainment, Luau WOW! will feature the fun-filled island-themed show, Blue Hawaii, including singers, hula dancers, drum troops, acrobatics, comedy and an Elvis impersonator. Visitors can also experience astounding performances by traditional hula, haka and belly dancers, exhibitions by fire walkers and fire eaters, and a sandcastle artist who will construct legendary, larger than life sandcastles in real time while guests enjoy the luau. Face painters, traditional Hawaiian tattoo artists, photo stand-in boards for fun photo ops, a pig roast and great drink specials will round out the Luau WOW! festivities.
The festival at Fremont Street Experience will kick off at 12:00 p.m., and the first 3,000 visitors will receive a free lei. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in their brightest Hawaiian shirts, straw hats, grass skirts, coconut bras and any other outlandish, island-themed outfits.
