LAS VEGAS, Nev. (November 9, 2021) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Known as the ultimate running party with non-stop entertainment, Rock ‘n’ Roll® Running Series Las Vegas has unveiled the Symphonic Rockshow as its headliner who will be performing at Downtown Las Vegas Event Center, a new venue for the pre-race concert. The reimagined #StripatNight weekend experience takes place Feb. 26-27, 2022 with the downtown 5K and headliner concert on Saturday, Feb. 26, and the half marathon and 10K on Sunday night, Feb. 27.

“Since 2019 we’ve been planning for a reimagined Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas event that takes the best of what this event has offered over the years, and enhance it, including a new direction for entertainment,” said Nicole Christenson, Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Las Vegas Race Director and Las Vegas local. “The immersive Symphonic Rockshow and Downtown Las Vegas Event Center are a huge part of the new experience we will be offering to #StripatNight participants. Shifting our Saturday night entertainment options to Downtown Las Vegas expands the event to different parts of the city and brings something completely new to race weekend.”

The new downtown 5K course on Saturday, Feb. 26 will finish under the bright lights of the Fremont Street Experience, followed by the race weekend concert and festival at Downtown Las Vegas Event Center, featuring the Symphonic Rockshow. Additionally, interactive experiences, photo opportunities, local artists, food trucks, cocktails, and more will create a memorable night for participants.

Symphonic Rockshow combines a classical symphony with a rock band to breathe new life into time-tested classic rock anthems. The five-piece band, led by renown vocalist/producer Brody Dolyniuk, faithfully recreates the music of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Who and many more rock bands with astonishing accuracy, but then adds the power and dynamics of a 21-piece (or larger) orchestra for a truly unique musical experience. The show utilizes a huge video screen, live cameras and state-of-the-art lasers, lighting and multimedia to tell a visual story and bring the audience up close and personal with the musicians onstage.

The one-of-a-kind running experience will once again take over the Las Vegas Strip while passing iconic sights including the ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign, The Fountains of Bellagio and Downtown Las Vegas, with an electric finish line unlike any other in the world ending mid-Strip at the Volcano at The Mirage Hotel & Casino. The race will bring the spirit of Las Vegas out of the casinos and onto the course in 2022 with a mix of DJs, traditional band stages and new spectator party locations. Also new next year is the 10K start line, which will now be in the center of the action at the Start Line Festival area where the half marathon starts.

The three-day Health & Fitness Expo, where runners pick up their race packet, will feature DJs and an emcee to interact with participants, non-stop music, live entertainment, numerous photo opportunities including art installations and life-size marquee letters and more.
