After negotiations that lasted for more than a year, The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has announced that they will be hosting the first-ever Vegas residency by legendary showmen KISS. The Joint, is a 3200-seat venue on the grounds of the Hotel where the band will stage their over-the-top production.
â€œUsually, going into a smaller venue means eliminating things,â€ KISS front man Paul Stanley said in a statement released today. â€œThe great thing about going into The Joint, it gives us the opportunity to add. Much in the same way as a Broadway show, when you have a permanent installation, youâ€™re not breaking down every night to travel. So we can do things we wouldnâ€™t normally do.â€
The band, it seems, are not the only ones going “all out” for this Kiss Rocks Vegas event. â€œThe activation will encompass the entire property for the month theyâ€™re out here â€” from the performances onstage to wrapping the hotel with Kiss stuff to having team members wearing Kiss shirts,â€ said Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for Vegas Hard Rock.
The initial run of the residency is scheduled to go for 9 dates starting on November 9, 2014. Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale this Friday at AXS.com.
