Best Live Music in Las Vegas

January 30, 2018

Music makes the world go round and nowhere is music more resounding than in Las Vegas. Whether you want to catch the hottest performing artist or a band at a live music concert or bar, or simply kick back and relax – Vegas is your destination. With virtually every genre from R&B, classic rock, country, jazz, to piano music, the Vegas live music scene is vibrant and attracts performers from all over the world.

Not surprising, music is the core of the experience you get when visiting Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The resort’s celebration of music is felt from the moment guests enter the property with nods to popular music lyrics like the one above the main entrance door (if this house is a rockin’, don’t bother knockin’…just come on in) and music memorabilia located throughout the resort.

If you love music and a good party, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Vegas should be on your must-stay and play list. Here’s how to make the most of your visit.

Where to Stay

The JBL Sound Suite is designed with the music aficionado in mind and is located in the AAA Four Diamond rated HRH Tower. Throughout the suite’s 1,262 square feet of modern luxury, you’ll find a JBL concert quality surround-sound system, virtual reality station, electronic drum set and the ultimate digitech sound experience with guitar and amplifier waiting for you to plug in and rock out.

What to See

Get inspired to create your own music by walking around the resort. After all, it’s basically the best free 24-hour rock and roll museum you’ll find. With a collection of over $4 million in memorabilia, including 600 costumes and personal items of scores of artists and bands including instruments, concert and music posters, and gold and platinum albums. The collection has items from some of the greatest musical performers like Nirvana and the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elvis and so many more.

New exhibits are consistently added like the upcoming dedication with Sum 41’s Frank Zummo and American contemporary street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey. The new exhibit will feature a custom drum set used on the Sum 41 tour along with Fairey’s eight hand painted, one-of-a-kind panels, exclusively for the Hard Rock Hotel, which will be surrounding the drum set at the base.

Where to Listen to Live Music

And of course, no music experience would be complete without actually being able to listen to live music. Widely-known for its innovative music scene, where the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails and The Killers have all performed, live music is abundant at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Incubus performs at The Joint this Friday and Saturday and March 30-31. Multi-platinum, chart-topping rock band, Nickelback will return to Sin City for an impressive five-night run at The Joint on Feb. 23, 24, 27 and March 2 and 3.
