Vegas Cruise Classic Car Show to Drive “Summer of the 70s” on Fremont Street Experience

June 2, 2010 by  

Fremont Street Experience presents “Summer of the ‘70s” will host the annual Vegas Cruise car show event Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6. The weekend will feature a free live concert from legendary band Sweet, a free car show and plenty of ’70s-themed fun.

Headlining Vegas Cruise, as part of “Summer of the ‘70s,” is famed ’70s glam rock group Sweet on June 5 at 9 p.m. on the 1st Street Stage playing a free open-to-the-public concert at the Fremont Street Experience. With such memorable songs as “Ballroom Blitz,” “Fox on the Run” and “Love is Like Oxygen,” Sweet brings back ’70s rock music memories.

For classic car enthusiasts, a free car show will take place all weekend long from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday. The vast display of over 200 pre-1972 cars will stretch over the five blocks of the Fremont Street Experience and will feature many rare, classic cars including a ’70s icon 1974 Chevrolet Camaro as well as the ultimate classic car, a Ford Model-T. All visitors to Vegas Cruise will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite rides in such categories as “People’s Choice” and “Ladies’ Choice” as the car owners compete for cash and prizes.

“Rock music and classic cars together in one incredible venue blend everything that Summer of the ’70s is all about,” said Jeff Victor, president of the Fremont Street Experience. “They bring back memories of cruising in your 1974 Chevy Camaro and blasting Sweet’s ‘Ballroom Blitz’ on the radio.”

The Devonshires will be on hand for the duration of Vegas Cruise to keep the place rockin’ with their “Classic Rock Spectacular” tribute show. The Devonshires will play ’70s hits from June 3-6 on the 3rd Street Stage at 9 p.m. for Fremont Street Experience visitors.

The music and culture from the decade of the 1970s will be featured downtown Las Vegas this summer as Fremont Street Experience presents the “Summer of the ’70s” festival and free concert series. The 102-day promotion kicked off Memorial Day Weekend and runs through Labor Day Weekend.

“Summer of the ’70s” is sponsored by Corona Extra, Corona Light, Cruzan Rum, Modelo especial, Sauza Tequila Hornitos and Stoli Vodka. There are $5 beer and liquor drink specials available at outdoor bars on Fremont Street Experience every night throughout the summer.
