Kid Rock to Headline Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas


Las Vegas – August 7, 2015 – One of the biggest weekends in running just got bigger. American rock star Kid Rock will headline the 2015 Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon on Sunday, November 16. The five-time Grammy nominated artist will perform at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series during the pre-race concert powered by iHeartRadio starting at 3:00pm. The marathon and half-marathon begin at 4:30pm, running on both sides of the Las Vegas Strip at night.Known for his hit songs, including ‘Cowboy,’ ‘Bawitdaba,’ ‘All Summer Long,’ ‘Picture’ and ‘Born Free,’ Kid Rock recently released his tenth studio album “First Kiss” earlier this year. His popular mix of Southern rock, hip‐hop, blues‐and-country‐tinged ballads has sold more than 25 million records during his career.

“Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas has become one of the most anticipated running events of the year and nothing says Rock ‘n’ Roll like a Kid Rock concert in Las Vegas,” said Josh Furlow, President of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. “With the energy of running down the Las Vegas Strip at night and to have a true rock star like Kid Rock take over the main stage, this is guaranteed to be an unforgettable event runners won’t want to miss.”

Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas returns to Sin City the weekend of November 12-15 as the only private event that exclusively shuts down the Las Vegas Strip at night. Featuring an expanded race weekend illuminated by the Strip’s neon marquees, the race highlights the must-see Vegas sights from the iconic ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign to the Fountains of Bellagio. Both of the marathon and half-marathon routes finish at the base of the Mirage Volcano on the most famous street in the world.

The nighttime race attracts runners of all abilities to experience the one-of-a-kind event with live bands at every mile, a Run-Thru Wedding for couples to elope on-the-go, the infamous group of Running Elvi, along with pre- and post-event parties throughout the weekend at Vegas’ top nightlife venues.

Las Vegas weekend activities begin with a free three-day Health & Fitness Expo where all participants go to pick up their race number, gear bag and t-shirt. This ultimate running showcase will kick off Thursday, November 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center featuring more than 100 fitness retailers, exhibits, free samples and interactive clinics.
