All we need now is a festival themed casino in Las Vegas.

And a festival reality show on the E channel.

And we will be complete.

One of the big Vegas casino companies were thinking about doing a replica of the Montreux Casino here in Vegas.

If they do a US version of the Montreux Jazz Festival that could be interesting if it's done right....

Edit.

I just did some research, Montreux casino is canceled along with many other projects thanks to the economy.

well sort of, this was one day and not two weeks, so its all good .....good show though ... x****


On July 28, the day of the concert, 600,000 music fans had arrived in Watkins Glen. The Grateful Dead performed first, playing two long sets. They opened with "Bertha" and played many hits such as "Box Of Rain", "Jack Straw", "Playing in the Band", "China Cat Sunflower" and "Eyes of the World".
