Deadmau5 will perform a free block party at Las Vegas’ Commercial Center on Thursday, May 18. The legendary DJ will perform at 9 p.m., following Bella Strings at 7 p.m. and Frank Perez at 8 p.m.
The concert, expected to draw a crowd of 10K, is part of a movement spearheaded by property developers to rebrand the historic outdoor shopping mall as a spin-off of the nearby downtown Arts District.
Located on East Sahara Avenue, east of the Strip, the Commercial Center became known in the ’90s for notoriously seedy bars and a sex club, the Green Door. In the ’60s, however, it was Las Vegas’ first shopping center, a thriving suburban hub featuring the Ice Palace hockey rink.
This was the site of Led Zeppelin’s only Las Vegas concert on August 11, 1969, and shows by The Doors and Grateful Dead. It’s now a roller-hockey venue called Sahara Event Center.
Though the Deadmau5 concert is free, tickets are required and can be obtained now at //ClarkCountyNV.gov/fabulous23. A limit has been set of two per email address.
