7 p.m.: Laser X
The top alternative songs of the 90s helped usher in a major cultural shift, as serious-minded, image-free bands blew hair metal and pop off the airwaves almost overnight. Many of these bands have gone on to become the new ruling class of rock’n’roll in the years and decades that followed.
8 p.m.: Laser Metallica
Considered to be one of the few pioneer groups in what would become the heavy metal genre, the musicianship and force of this band has been hailed by critics and fans worldwide. Now Metallica’s tempos, instrumentals, themes and sound are joined with laser lights of the same caliber and style.
9 p.m.: Laser Zeppelin
Proclaimed by numerous critics to be the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock, their individualistic style set the standard for many musical genres in the 1960s and 70s. Laser Zeppelin gives you the opportunity to relive the band’s iconic music and enjoy a visual treat of custom laser imagery.

8 p.m.: Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon

9 p.m.: Laser Queen
Start with a layer of heavy metal, add a dash of glam, a pinch of astrophysics, and sprinkle liberally with theatrics. Only then will you get a sense of what makes up the legendary Queen, the band who are often touted as being the most educated rock band to ever live. Freddy Mercury put it best when he said, “The whole point of Queen was to be original. We’re a very expensive group; we break a lot of rules, It’s unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear.”
