LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
It's a show so big, you might be able to see it from miles away.
The Who is the latest band tabbed for the Fremont Street Experience's Viva Vision show. Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, and Fremont Street Experience President Jeff Victor held a press conference announcing the show Tuesday.
Viva Vision, billed as having the world's largest video screen, spans the length of five football fields and features a light show synced to smash hits from legendary bands each night.
The new show, The Who - Miles Over Vegas, is built around three classics from the 1960s: My Generation, I Can See for Miles and Pinball Wizard.
"It's quite exciting to get our own Viva Vision show, seven minutes of 3-D video animation from our early period done in that pop art style and using vintage footage. I am very intrigued to see the final show," Daltrey said.
Other shows feature the music of Bon Jovi, Queen, The Doors and Heart.
"The Who has been at the top of our wish list for years and we are thrilled that they agreed to have their music featured on Viva Vision. I am sure that The Who - Miles Over Vegas will be a fabulous addition and will blow everyone away when it premieres this fall," said Victor.
