Fremont Street Experience, in partnership with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), is hosting a free “Camp Vegas” concert by hot up-and-coming band Neon Trees on Thursday, August 12 at 9 p.m.
After touring with The Killers, playing Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 6 and headlining the “Bang The Gong Tour” this year, Neon Trees bring their perfect mix of melodic and hard-hitting organic rock to Fremont Street Experience for a special performance on the 3rd Street Stage.
The hit song “Animal” by Neon Trees, which was recently named Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Artist of the Week,” is featured in national television commercials for the LVCVA’s Camp Vegas summer promotion. Radio contest winners from Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle – courtesy of the LVCVA — will also be in attendance enjoying the concert from Fremont Street Experience’s VIP red carpet area.
Neon Trees, a synth-pop band from Provo, Utah was formed in 2004 by lead vocalist Tyler Glenn and guitarist Chris Allen. The band was complete when Branden Campbell (originally form Las Vegas) and Elaine Bradley joined the group on bass and drums, respectively. After hearing them in 2008, The Killers drummer, Ronnie Vannucci Jr., was impressed and played a key role in getting them signed to Mercury Records. Neon Trees’ debut album Habits reached #1 on the US Alternative New Artist Chart and top 10 overall on iTunes. The band’s name originates from the lighted trees outside of In-N-Out Burger restaurants, frequently seen in California.
