Rock ‘n’ Roll into 2015 at Downtown Countdown
New Year’s Eve Celebration at Fremont Street Experience
Rock ‘n’ Roll into the new year during the Downtown Countdown New Year’s Eve 2015 Celebration taking place Wednesday, Dec. 31 from 6 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. at Fremont Street Experience in fabulous downtown Las Vegas. This year the ultimate New Year’s Eve street party is themed TributePalooza and features 13 of the world’s greatest tribute bands. These tribute bands include: Fan Halen (Van Halen), Queen Nation (Queen), Led Zepagain (Led Zeppelin), Rio (Duran Duran), Generation Idol (Billy Idol), No Duh (No Doubt), Red Not Chili Peppers (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Doobies Inc. (The Doobie Brothers), Jumping Jack Flash (Rolling Stones), Aeromyth (Aerosmith), Crimes of Passion (Pat Benatar), Don’t Look Back (Boston) and Bonfire (AC/DC).
“What is incredible about these acts is they are not just live cover bands. They have the look and stage show emulating the bands they are paying tribute to,” says FSE Director of Marketing Tom Bruny. “Because the audience knows every hit song, the result is one fantastic street party of 13 bands playing on three stages for nine hours. All of this for only $40 makes it the best value in Las Vegas.”
The TributePalooza celebration kicks off with a Dec. 30 pre-party, featuring six tribute bands under the FSE canopy. The headliner event is Dec. 31, with all 13 bands featured. Then seven bands will continue the five-day party on Jan. 1-3. The concerts will begin at 6:15 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and at 5 p.m. on the other nights.
On New Year’s Eve, just before midnight, revelers will say goodbye to 2014 with a year-in-review retrospective on the Viva Vision screen and a midnight countdown led by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman. Immediately following will be an epic live Fireworks by Grucci produced show synchronized with virtual fireworks on Viva Vision as part of the citywide celebration, “America’s Party: Las Vegas New Year’s 2015.”
