iHeart Radio. Amplified. Desert Hops. Route 91. Life is Beautiful.
Music lovers. Grape lovers. Beer lovers. Downtown lovers.
No matter your tastes or your interests, it seems as if Las Vegas will have a festival just for you before year's end. And, we've three more options for you to ponder while trying to decide which events are can't miss and which should be shuffled over to the 'maybe next time' pile. We've already mentioned a few here on Chatter, but have compiled them all together in an at-a-glance format before. The three fests we've yet to mention have been highlighted in blue.

KISS has long been rumored to be doing a Vegas residency and those whispers were rekindled recently. Going back to last December, KISS frontman, Paul Stanley, mentioned they were considering a Vegas residency. That rumor surged back to life last month when Stanley didn’t deny the possibility when asked by a fan:
Over the weekend, this poster at the Hard Rock really amped up the discussion.

If you're a fan of rock 'n' roll or heavy metal, you're probably aware that Guns N' Roses has returned to The Joint at the Hard Rock for a second residency called No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction. There are a couple more shows of this mini-residency set for this weekend, if you're in town.
Rock 'n' roll is always best experienced in person, but don't worry if you're unable to make it to see GnR in person. Beginning June 18, you'll be able to see a 3D concert film from Guns N' Roses called "Appetite for Democracy" in theaters. The film also will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD starting July 1.

The Hard Rock has announced that Def Leppard will launch VIVA Hysteria starting March 22. The nine-week engagement will have the band performing every single song from their HYSTERIA album, as well as some of their greatest hits not found on said album. And, yes, that means you'll be able to sing along to "Pour Some Sugar On Me."

The residency is coming, the residency is coming. The long awaited, much anticipated, years in the making Guns N Roses residency at the Hard Rock is almost here. Now, that we have the Axl approved intro out of the way, we can move on to the real news: in leading up to the biggest residency the Joint's ever seen
if it were 1993 Mr. Rose himself is set to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, October 24.
Why is Axl on Jimmy big news? Other than the chance to get his thoughts on the iPhone 6 the Kimmel appearance marks Rose's first live television broadcast interview in over 20 years (ignoring the fact that JKL airs on tape delay). Ah, now you see where we pulled 1993 from. In fact, the GnR lead singer hasn't granted many interviews at all in recent years. Last year's sitdown with VH1's That Metal Show was a rare chance to hear the singer speak since the days the band was splattered in the pages of Kerrang!, Hit Parader, and Metal Edge. Again, 20 years ago.

Finally, a musical residency announcement that doesn't involve middle-aged country singers! Instead, today's news involves middle-aged rockers!
Axl Rose and whoever makes up the rest of Guns N' Roses have just announced a 12-date residency of "mind-blowing shows" at The Joint at the Hard Rock starting on Halloween and moving well into November. The AEG Live production is to be called, "Appetite for Democracy." Umm....

There's a whole lot of shakin' up at the Hard Rock. Venues, restaurants, bars, souvenirs... It's all a go-go. On a media tour to roll out the fresh changes to the resort, VegasChatter tasted and toured the minty new-ness and we think you're going to feel a renewed sense of energy throughout the place.
In no order of preference, here's a rundown of the changes you'll see:

Motley Crüe's first rock 'n roll residency opened last Friday at The Joint inside the Hard Rock. The Crüe promised to transform the Hard Rock's casino floor into a carnival and influence its restaurant menus before delivering a Cirque meets rock show never before seen. Expectations were set for a mind-blowing epic performance for the ages. So which Cirque show did we witness on opening night: a LOVE-fest or an 'I can't Believe I spent money for that' crap-fest?
The carnival atmosphere didn't quite consume us entering the casino. Red bunting and Motley Crüe ads hung above the center bar while a couple clowns and stilt walkers posed for pictures near the Joint entrance. A handful of funhouse mirrors tossed in the Joint's hallway continued the underwhelming theme. The biggest pre-show circus turned out to be the line that stretched from the concert hall entry out past the Hart and Huntington tattoo shop less than thirty minutes before showtime.

The Hard Rock's gonna be Motley Crüe's Frankenstein beginning today when the Feelgood hands of doctors Neil, Lee, Sixx, and Mars launch their much anticipated three week residency. The band is known for their over-the-top live shows anyhow, but the Crue is kicking it up a hundred notches for The Joint.
Not many intimate details about the actual show have been released to date other than that fans should expect a full-blown Cirque meets rock concert. Band members have hinted at transforming every inch of the Joint into performance space rather than being limited to playing the stage at one end. We're picturing Tommy Lee banging away above us, below us, and to both sides of us. In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Vince Neil revealed more elements of the two hour show: pyrotechnics, aerialists,
strippers dancers, wild video displays, a rollercoaster drum set and Little Crüe.
