    Is anyone going? I am not thrilled, as I have never heard of any of the bands, except Everclear, and thats only because they are semi-local. Supposedly they still have a few to announce, but if these are the big one, I am not holding my breath. I miss the 80's bands, but I guess they cant repeat them over and over every summer, and at least there is some variety as to types of music.



    May 19 (Sunday) – Theory of a Deadman

    May 25 (Saturday) – Fuel and Lit

    June 8 (Saturday) – Hinder

    June 29 (Saturday) – Summerland Tour 2013 Alternative Guitars starring Everclear, Live, Filter and Sponge

    Aug. 31 (Saturday) – Puddle of Mudd

    oh dear god, Theory of a Dead Man is, without a trace of exaggeration, one of the worst bands out there.
    they sound exactly like Nickleback, but they're much worse, if that can be believed.

    it seems that every Canadian musician/band that plays in Vegas is some of the worst that we've produced up here (Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and now this crap).

    Theory of a deadman is pretty horrible.

    Live is great live. That show isn't a bad line up with Filter and ever clear. Richard Patrick's voice is shot but he can still belt out a few tunes.

    Puddle of Mudd is the best of these bands and always puts on a hell of a show.

    With a line-up like this, can Nickleback be far away????

    I'm going to have to disagree.
    its more like early 2000s frat-boy cock-rock.

    I'm familiar with most of those bands listed, but would probably only go see Everclear.

    Frankly, I tend to stay away from the headliners - preferring the great 80's cover bands FSE usually brings in from LA on the weekends.

    You guys don't know Live?!? Lightning Crashes, I Alone, All Over You, Pain Lies on the Riverside?? I'm not a huge fan or anything but you could hardly turn on a pop/rock radio station in the early 90's without hearing these guys. I'd say there music is pretty good at times and often catchy. Like many groups of the time they like to be sacreligous with can turn my off a little.

    Now everclear I'd defenitly go see again. I actually just happened to catch their concert on Fremont a few years ago when they played during the Hawiian Tropic finals. They were great (as were the Hawiian Tropic girls)!

    Puddle of Mudd has been around since 1992 and has had some success. Even though they hail from my hometown of Kc. Mo., I'm not really a fan. They might be SCHEDULED to play, but you won't know for sure untill they actually start playing. I really didn't know that they were still a together! The lead singer, Wes Scantlin, has been bit of train wreck the past few years.

    I'd guess you'd be wrong. Most of these bands were around during the mid 90s.

    I've seen every band announced except for Sponge. All are pretty good live except Theory of a Deadman. Their first album was decent enough but the last few have been garbage. I'd say the best band would be Live. Even their more recent albums are pretty solid.

    I liked the 1980s sets best over the past few years. ABC was the best headliner I was able to catch to date.

    I'll check out Puddle of Mudd based on the several recommendations here and listening to a few of their songs on You Tube.

    Just because these bands STARTED in the 1990s...

    doesn't mean they were particularly well known until the 2000s (not sure you could even say some of them are too well known)
    I like some songs by Theory of a Dead Man, Puddle of Mudd & Everclear...defintely alt. rock, I get the grunge connection, but their music is much harder ("grunge punk" is a descriptor I have seen).
    Not sure I would want to listen to a whole concert of any of them...

    seleting bands that will please millions of visitors has to be one of the most difficult tasks in LV.

    While none of them are my faves, I am looking forward to seeing Puddle of Mudd Labor Day weekend.

    I'm kind of surprised to see Fremont Street selecting such young skewing bands for this summer's series. I see most of these shows bringing in a lot of people under 30 including a decent percentage that are too young to gamble. They better sell a lot of beer with these shows.....as I don't think they'll make the return on investment from gambling.
