On the Cheap by H Scot Krause | Las Vegas’ famed Fremont Street Experience will premiere the first of three new Viva Vision shows, "A Tribute to Queen," on Thursday, April 17 at 8 p.m.

"A Tribute to Queen" will be the first in a series of shows featuring 3D sound and it is the first Viva Vision show to be dedicated entirely to one artist. Set to two of the greatest rock anthems of all time, Queen’s "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," the show is a dazzling musical showcase accompanied by stunning graphics on the 1,500 foot Viva Vision screen.

In celebration of "A Tribute to Queen," the tribute band Queen Nation will be performing at the Fremont Street Experience for a six-night engagement from April 17-22. Queen Nation will play nightly from 8-11 p.m. on the 3rd Street Stage. Each show is free and open to the public. Since coming together in 2004, Queen Nation has played to thousands of Queen fans.
