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 Crue / Hard Rock / The Joint / Vince Neil / Tommy Lee / Shows / Concerts / Music / Events / → All Tags
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.

Just when you had given up and thought your quest to get into the sold out Drake concert on New Year's Day was Over, the Hard Rock has released more tickets. But you'd better be ready to pony up some serious cash 'cause the Hard Rock wants the money, money. The only way to get tickets, at least directly from the Hard Rock, is through the
baller VIP Package that includes:

For some reason, Vegas resorts just aren't having fun with once-in-a-lifetime numbers, anymore. Ever since 7-7-07 rolled by, numerical promotions have been pretty sparse. Thankfully, the Hard Rock has an over-the-top way for us to celebrate 11-11-11, especially if we hit a jackpot between now and then.
The hotel's 11-11-11 special is aptly labeled the "Extravagant Package." Probably, because they've thrown in just about everything you can ever think to experience at the resort but, more likely, because it comes with a whooping $11,111 price tag!

Mark your calendars. January 1 and January 15 were/will be big days in Vegas. And, not just because of the big hair.
Because the city of Las Vegas can't
bend over show it loves the Miss America pageant enough (and because Mayor Oscar Goodman is in the last days of his reign and what else is he going to do?), January 15 has been designated as "Miss America Day" in Vegas.
That's this Saturday and it gives you just enough time to dust off those stilettos and crowns in celebration of all beauty queens do

If you thought we'd cover all there was to do in Vegas on New Year's Eve 2010, you were wrong. Every joint is doing something (except, ironically, The Joint) and we've only just touched the tip of the
iceberg ice-covered champagne bottle.
Here are five more ways you can ring in NYE Vegas-style:

There’s not a huge number of celeb clubbers in town this weekend, but that’s probably because they’re intimidated by the performers coming to town.
Diana Ross plays the Colosseum tonight and tomorrow, Whoopi Goldberg is at TI tonight and Usher is at Mandalay Bay tomorrow night with Trey Songz and Miguel supporting. Then on Sunday, the Rodmanator is back at the Colosseum and Sheryl Crow headlines the Joint for her rescheduled gig. The Hard Rock has a pretty good package for the Crow gig: $159 for a room for the night and two tickets to the show.
But it’s ok because Jessica Lowndes of 90210 is doing her bit for the club kids by hosting her 22nd birthday party at Pure tomorrow. Also tomorrow, Jermaine Dupri is DJing at LAX.
We’ll save ourselves for La Ross, if that’s ok.
