The Who: Viva Vision show at Las Vegas’ Fremont Street Experience announced

The Who are getting their own Viva Vision show at Las Vegas’ Fremont Street Experience.

“The Who – Miles Over Vegas” light and sound show will contain stunning graphics built around three of the band’s iconic songs: “My Generation”, “I Can See for Miles” and “Pinball Wizard”.

“It’s quite exciting to get our own Viva Vision show, seven minutes of 3D video animation from our early period done in that Pop Art style and using vintage footage,” said Daltrey at the press conference. “I am very intrigued to see the final show.”

Viva Vision, the world’s largest video screen spanning five football fields, features customized light shows synced to smash hits from legendary bands every night of the week and include “Bon Jovi – Wanted In Vegas”, “A Tribute To Queen”, “The Doors – Strange Days In Vegas” and “Heart – Crazy On Vegas”.

“The Who has been at the top of our wish list for years and we are thrilled that they agreed to have their music featured on Viva Vision,” added Jeff Victor, President of The Fremont Street Experience. “I am sure that The Who – Miles Over Vegas will be a fabulous addition and will blow everyone away when it premieres this fall.”

Viva Vision, the LED display canopy rises 90 feet in height and stretches 1,500 feet along the Fremont Street Experience promenade from Main Street to Fourth Street. Within the canopy are 12.5 million LED lights and 208 speakers producing 550,000 watts of concert-quality sound.
