Joan Jett

Musicologists agree it would be virtually impossibly to get more rock ‘n’ roll than Joan Jett.

Our eighth Rock of Vegas season will be full of surprises, and we’ll be announcing more bands soon. Rock of Vegas concerts run through Labor Day weekend.

“We are ecstatic to have Joan Jett & The Blackhearts kick off Fremont Street Experience’s eighth summer concert series this year,” says Thomas Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience. “Downtown Las Vegas is such an energetic place to see a live concert and offers the best values in the city. All the concerts and stage shows are free, plus the downtown hotel-casinos offer great deals on room rates, gambling and many food and drink specials.”

Rock of Vegas 2016

Vegas is always just a bit more Vegas during our Rock of Vegas free concert season.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You” and “Crimson and Clover.” The band released its latest record, Unvarnished, last year.

Let’s take a listen to “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” with a mere 33 million views on YouTube.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts take to the 3rd Street stage at Fremont Street Experience on May 28, at the intersection of The D Las Vegas, Four Queens and Fremont Hotel & Casino.

The event is free and open to the public.

    • sroeben

      Thanks for asking! Passes for the VIP area are distributed by our member casinos, at their discretion. They can’t be purchased.

      • Meryl

        Will the D offer VIP to its slot players or hotel guests?

        • sroeben

          Can’t be sure. Each casino handles distribution of the passes differently. Best to check with them directly!
