The Joint Nominated by Pollstar Magazine for “Best New Major Concert Venue”

December 21, 2009 by  

The Joint, by Rogue at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino set the standard for new venues when it opened with five sold out shows in April 2009. The sold-out shows over two weekends–The Killers April 17, Avenged Sevenfold April 18, Paul McCartney April 19, Bon Jovi April 24, Kenny Chesney April 25–provided a wide range for music fans.

Recently, The Joint was nominated for the prestigious Best New Major Concert Venue award after having been operating for only eight months. The venue’s incredible sound system, great sight lines, and artist-friendly back of house paved the way for new industry standards. The Joint is among only five venues nationwide nominated for the award.

“We couldn’t possibly be happier with the responses we have received from the industry side. We have consistently been one of the top three grossing venues in the country and we had a monstrous year,” said Paul Davis, Vice President of Entertainment of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “We spent a tremendous amount of time and effort on the back-of-house design to make sure the bands and touring personnel were accommodated and it has really paid off.”

The Pollstar Awards will be held February 17, 2010 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles. AEG Live is the exclusive booking agent for the venue and has received fifteen overall nominations for its various divisions including Arena of the Year, Talent Buyer of the Year and the Bill Graham Award.

“AEG and the Hard Rock Hotel celebrated an epic year in Las Vegas. We had a stellar opening line up, brought the first rock n’ roll residency to Las Vegas with Carlos Santana and we continue to set the mark for entertainment in Las Vegas with our second-to-none concert line up,” said Bobby Reynolds, Vice President of Booking of AEG Live Las Vegas. “We’re extremely proud of this venue and look forward to creating more magic in 2010.”
