Paul McCartneyThe scene in Las Vegas is about to change forever, starting with the opening of the new Joint concert venue at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.   Despite the economic downturn, the Hard Rock is still expanding and plans to welcome summer in true rock fashion with a wild, wet, and unbelievable weekend April 17-19. Sir Paul McCartney will headline the extravagant weekend opening the all new $60 million concert venue The Joint at Hard Rock.

“We’ve had some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry perform at our hotel over the past decade including The Rolling Stones, Metallica and Foo Fighters,” said Randy Kwasniewski, President and COO of Morgans Hotel Group Las Vegas and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “The new Joint allows us to take the live music scene in Vegas to the next level by giving artists and bands the opportunity to perform in front of sold out crowds inside one of most sophisticated and authentic concert venues in the country.”

The weekend lineup also includes the much-anticipated grand opening of motocross superstar Carey Hart’s Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company. The event marks the achievement of Carey’s two longtime dreams of having his tattoo shop and rock club, Wasted Space, under one roof.

Rehab takes place weekly ever Sunday through September.
