Fremont Street Experience’s “Rock of Vegas” concert series continues with a free concert featuring Vertical Horizon, Saturday, August 6 at 9 p.m. on the 1st Street Stage. With breakout hits like “Everything You Want,” “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)” and “You’re a God,” Vertical Horizon continues to capture national attention.
The band’s newest album, Echoes From The Underground, brings listeners on an emotional journey with a recurring theme of emotions that exist within relationships.
“Concertgoers thoroughly enjoyed Vertical Horizon last summer, so we brought them back for a second year. It promises to be another fun concert with crowds singing along,” said Thomas Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience.
Celebrating its eighth season, the free concerts have become one of the most popular summertime events in Las Vegas. This year’s lineup will turn the legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue into summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that have taken music to the edge.
Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grass roots band to national attention. In 1999, they released their breakout album, Everything You Want, which went on to sell more than two million copies. The single “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts, and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. The band garnered further radio attention with “You’re a God” and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning),” which in 2005 became a top 20 country hit for Gary Allan. Subsequent records followed included Go in 2003, Burning the Days in 2009 and their latest record, Echoes From The Underground, was released in 2013. Vertical Horizon tours extensively and in between tours Matt spends the majority of his time writing.
