Five Great Music Videos Shot in Downtown Las Vegas

October 17, 2016

The recently-released “24K Magic,” from music sensation Bruno Mars, joins a long list of music videos shot in Las Vegas, often right here at Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas.

The neon lights, iconic casinos and Viva Vision video screen (the largest in the world) are irresistible to music’s biggest names when they’re looking for a place to shoot their videos.
