Fremont Street Experience’s “Summer of the ’70s” kicks off Memorial Day Weekend with a free concert from the one and only Gloria Gaynor. On Saturday, May 29 at 9 p.m. on the 3rd Street Stage, fans will be able to sing along with the quintessential disco-era legend singing her blockbuster hits such as “Never Can Say Good-Bye” and “I Will Survive.”
“Gloria Gaynor is a perfect fit to begin the festivities for “Summer of the ’70s,” said Jeff Victor, president of the Fremont Street Experience. “She embodies the spirit of the decade and continues to be a prominent figure in music and entertainment.”
Gaynor has achieved a legendary status by recording several Top 100 hits and has a foothold in the dance music industry. Along with her induction to the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2005, her signature hit “I Will Survive” is featured in dozens of major motion pictures and hit television shows.
Also debuting on Memorial Day Weekend is “Fremont Street Fever.” This original production is a 35-minute show full of high-energy singing and dancing featuring the most popular disco songs of the ’70s with such hits as “Shake Your Groove Thing,” “Staying Alive” and “Funky Town.” Produced by Face Productions, this homage to the disco-era music of the ’70s will dazzle audiences every Thursday through Monday at 9:15 p.m., 10:15 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. all summer long.
The music and culture from the decade of the 1970s will be featured downtown Las Vegas this summer as Fremont Street Experience presents the “Summer of the ’70s” festival and free concert series.
