Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series Concludes on Saturday, September 3
LAS VEGAS, NV – August 23, 2016 – Be an “All-Star” during a free performance from Smash Mouth at Fremont Street Experience Labor Day Weekend with its Rock of Vegas concert series concluding on Saturday, September 3 at 9 p.m. on the 3rd Street Stage. Smash Mouth can be seen touring with their new album Magic – while focusing on entertaining the troops overseas. The band has produced numerous hit songs including “I’m A Believer,” “Walkin’ on the Sun,” “All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby.”
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.
Formed in late 1994, Smash Mouth began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, Calif. In June 1997, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to L.A. radio station KROQ's playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin' on the Sun.” Smash Mouth's major-label debut Fush Yu Mang goes more than double platinum and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album Astrolounge. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can't Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for Astrolounge are nearly double than their debut album, approaching quadruple platinum status. Smash Mouth's third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I'm a Believer” which was featured on the Shrek soundtrack. The band most recently released the album Magic and has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
