Before the Grammy-winning band hit the stage, Arcade Fire members William Butler, Tim Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara joined Paul Davis, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking at AEG Live, backstage to celebrate with a larger-than-life guitar cake from Freed’s Bakery of Las Vegas.
