The Downtown Rocks concert series was called off in due to the pandemic, but we shared back in May the band contracts werent canceled, just pushed back.
Now, Fremont Street Experience is sharing a list of confirmed concerts, and we hear additional concerts will be announced soon.
When we worked at Fremont Street Experience, we added the Your Mom to this graphic. Its called a legacy.
Heres the list of free concerts at Fremont Street Experience for
June 26 – Chevelle ( p.m., 3rd Street Stage)

Fremont Street Experience has threes stages, but two are being used for the concert series. The 1st Street Stage is between Binions and Circa, the 3rd Street stage is between The D and Four Queens.
Its worth noting that while many concerts in other venues dont start on time, shows at Fremont Street Experience almost always do.
Chevelle spontaneously combusts on June
The Downtown Rocks shows are free and open to the public, emphasis on free.
Which is a key bit of information when people complain about the fact the line-up doesnt meet their lofty expectations.
Announcements of the free concerts are always accompanied by whining about how many of the bands arent particularly current.
We worked at Fremont Street Experience for several years, so we can shed some light on this.
First, there are two main considerations for selecting bands for the free concert series: Cost and fans.
Tonic plays July Directed by J.J. Abrams.
While the shows are free to visitors, they arent free. The casinos who are members of Fremont Street Experience pay for the concerts. Those casinos are: Fremont, Four Queens, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, The D and Binions.
Most of the bands booked by Fremont Street Experience cost in the $40, to $60, range.
Cost is just one factor, however.
The free concerts are a marketing tool, and as such, bands are selected based upon what fans theyll draw to Fremont Streets casinos.
Revenue at downtown casinos is largely driven by gambling and liquor sales. So, bands tend to be from a sweet spot in the demographic they draw. Older bands draw older fans, and older fans gamble more.
The bottom line is its not really about how many people attend the free concerts, its about who.
But enough inside baseball! Its time to free concert again in Las Vegas.
The free shows on Fremont Street are wildly popular and often draw tens of thousands of people.
We often get questions about VIP passes, so heres whats up. For each concert, theres a section up front for those with VIP passes. Back in the day, Fremont Street Experience distributed them. Now, its the casinos, and are largely given as a perk to their best players.
If youre looking for a VIP pass to a free concert, ask your casino host.
If youre not in the VIP section, concerts are first-come, first-served, so arrive early and grab your spot.
At 71, George Thorogood still plucks a mean White Fang. He hits Fremont Street on Nov. 6.
Be aware that surge pricing (sorry, special event pricing) is in effect for self-park garages on concert nights. There are some workarounds, including being a hotel guest or a member of a casino loyalty club, as that often includes free parking.
Rideshare has made parking fees moot, so if youre coming to the concerts from The Strip, just plan ahead as Lyft and Uber have been a little spotty in recent months. Again, anticipate surge (sorry, dynamic) pricing for rides downtown.
Another thing to be aware of are security guidelines for concerts on Fremont Street.
Within the concert footprint, there are special security measures to navigate: No strollers, no package beverages, no coolers, no chairs, no backpacks or luggage, no glass, aluminum or bottles and no weapons (real or fake).
In the past, no masks were allowed, but thats gotten a little murky now. This typically means Halloween-style masks, not the other kind.
At the moment, masks are optional for fully vaccinated guests.
After you double down on blackjack, double up on deodorant. Fremont can get steamy during concerts.
Bags are subject to search, and there will be wanding or metal detectors in place.
At various times, Fremont Street Experience has instituted a clear bag policy for special events, although its unclear if that will be in place during the free concert series.
The return of free concerts to Fremont Street Experience is another reminder Las Vegas is returning to normalcy, and live music fans can finally fan with fellow fans again.
Stay hydrated. Bring earplugs. If you see something, say something. Pre-game and hang out after the shows.
Gird your cochlea, the Downtown Rocks free concert series is back at Fremont Street Experience.

Such a thought had occurred to me before, but now its implementation seemed to be ripe. Early tomorrow morning I will make my way to the park and find a secluded spot for some of my money and jewelry, some more I need to hide. More securely in the room. Going out to dinner, I ran into Arigol on the stairs.
