Paul McCartney to open The Joint, Hard Rock Las Vegas

Paul McCartney will headline the grand opening weekend of The New Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on April 19.

“I’m looking forward to Rockin’ The Joint!” Paul McCartney said in a news release.

“We are honored to have the multi-Grammy award winning artist and rock legend, Paul McCartney, launch us into a new era of rock ‘n’ roll at the all new Joint concert venue scheduled to open at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in April,” Randy Kwasniewski, president and COO of Morgans Hotel Group Las Vegas and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, said in a news release. “The new Joint will be the most sophisticated, intimate, and authentic venue in Las Vegas — unlike anything the city has ever seen.”

The New Joint inherited its name from the original Hard Rock venue and was designed by the Montreal-based architectural design firm Scéno Plus. The New Joint will double in size, while keeping the same atmosphere of the original venue and will carry on the up-close and authentic feel with the furthest seat in the house only 155 feet from the stage.

The New Joint will be a multipurpose facility featuring a state-of-the-art sound system, an innovative lighting system, WiFi access throughout the venue, a full blogging station for press covering events and 38 flat screens throughout the venue to guarantee the ultimate viewing experience.

The New Joint’s $60 million project is part of the widely publicized $750 million expansion the Hard Rock broke ground on in 2007, slated for completion in late 2009

  1. Hi. There is a guy offering tickets through ebay although no ticket is on sale yet. I will be in Vegas that day and it’s been a real surprise to learn that Sir Paul will be performing there on that date. What do you think is the best for getting tickets to the show?
