Candlebox and Cracker Kick Off Free 2018 Concert Series

On May 25, 2018, Candlebox and Cracker kicked off our 2018 Downtown Rocks summer concert series with back-to-back performances in the heart of downtown.

There shall be rock. And possibly grunge.

Cracker was up first, filling Fremont Street with their unique sound which has been described in a number of ways: Alt-rock, Americana and even “insurgent-country.”

The band has put out 10 studio albums and have been making memorable music for a quarter century.

Cracker brought down the house with a Fan Favorite, “Low.”

Next, Candlebox lit up the crowd with hits like “Change,” “You,” “Far Behind” and “Simple Lessons.”

Candlebox, too, has been at the music business for decades, currently celebrating their 25th anniversary.

Here’s more about Candlebox at Fremont Street Experience.

If free, live music is your thing, join us for our free Downtown Rocks concerts.

You never know what might happen at a Fremont Street Experience concert! During the Candlebox show, fans got up close and person with the band’s lead singer, Kevin Martin.

Way to keep our security team on their toes, Kevin.
