The Joint

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

1ent_joint_photoOk, so The Who never did get around to kicking off their U.S. tour but they certainly had every intention. And that kick off spot was to be The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. Had hard luck not intervened, the 1,400-person, sold-out spot would have had Las Vegas rocking as bands do not get much bigger than The Who and spots to see them don’t get much smaller than The Joint. Other than inviting Roger Daltrey to parade around your living room, the closest most people can hope to get to the Gods of Rock would be at the Hard Rock Hotel, where the likes of Bob Dylan, Melissa Etheridge and Seal have all taken the stage. Be prepared to stand, although you might be able to (and do it if you can!) reserve a folding chair or barstool. No matter where you are in this tiered-down sound palace (with the exception of the back of the balcony), the view is good, close enough to see sweat and if you are lucky, far enough from the stage not to be hemmed in by raving hordes and unkind decibels.
