    I looked at the Website and it's not real clear on the Saturday Hot Rod pass. Will the headliners such as the Stray Cats be playing outside on the stage or inside where it takes a VIP pass to see them?

  7. I look at it this way, it’s only rock and roll, but I like it.

    If you go into the searchable schedule, you'll see that Hot Rod Lincoln, Duane Eddy, Jerry Lee and Stray Cats are playing on the Car Show Stage on Saturday.
    Stray Cats last band on stage (bet that will piss off Jerry Lee :D)


    So, much better acts on inside in the halls during the weekend that at the car show ;):p

    Man, Jerry Lee is before my time; but I remember when the Stray Cats were new stuff, tolerated only because it was loud, and the guy could shred a solo.

    Been a fan since '83... stoked to finally catch them live! First time hitting Viva as well. Two bucket list items in a single weekend! Well, three if you count looking into the Grand Canyon a few days prior. ;-)

    What a comeback, not an upset, it's the bands.......do you know where your parents are.....tonight.
    Hope you guys like the play on some words from a good movie.

    My wife and I are going. Roadtrippin' all the way from Seattle. Been to about five of these events. Great times. About a square acre of all sorts of period correct cars. Gonna hit the Shelby Car Headquarters and Museum in downtown Vegas. FREE to visitors.

    Wish I could go this year. Went last year and had fun. I learned a few things I would do differently next time. I won't fly next time- I want to drive. But from Alabama, LV is kind of a long haul.

    Always wanted to see the Stray Cats- this is a hard one to miss! And Jerry Lee Lewis- guy can't have too many more shows left in him. The Killer is awesome. Hope to be there next year.

    Hey Brett, long time no see! Hope you have been well. Yep, still drumming with Straight 8s and my surf band El Mirage.

    Any other dos/don'ts or insider tips from VLV regulars? We've got tickets for Saturday and hoping there's a way to get into Deke Dickerson's Guitar Geek show at midnight, without having to pay for a Sunday wristband. Read about a new tiki bar called The Golden Tiki... hope to spend some time there and at Frankie's over the course of the weekend. Just added the Shelby Car HQ to the list of stops (thanks, Jon).

    Attention everyone. This news just came in from Tom Ingram. For the first time in VLV history, it is SOLD OUT. This includes tickets to walk in to the Car Show as well as trying to put a car in the event. Thanks, Axle

    Hi,
    Hi, your car show ticket will only allow you to get in to the car show. You can,however get in to the casino bar area. Take care

    Thanks, Axle, appreciate the clarification. At least my inner procrastinator was on vacation a few weeks back when I bought Hot Rodder tickets. We literally planned the whole trip around the chance to see The Stray Cats. Would have been brutal to miss out. Congratz on selling out the show!
