The Joint at the Hard Rock
Many of the biggest names in music have played The Joint in Hard Rock since it first opened in 1995, including The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Coldplay, The Killers and more. But the Joint doubled its space in 2009, now accommodating 4,000 people in a three-level venue that includes 700 fixed balcony seats, general-admission standing room on the floor and a second level VIP area with luxury boxes. But the “mini-residencies” are the greatest new thing about The Joint: KISS played a three-month stint here in 2014, followed by Rascal Flatts, with a nine-appearance residency, in 2015. The farthest seat in the house is 155 feet from the stage—pretty great viewing for any concert. Plus, massive motorized screens on each side of the stage project all the action all the way to the back.
