Hard Rock has been (forgive us) rockin' the Vegas residency with limited engagements by Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Guns N' Roses as well as an upcoming fall residency by KISS.

Guns N' Roses just wrapped up its second residency at The Joint and did really good business. How good? Take a look at the ticket sales released by Billboard for the band's last three nights at HRH:

KISS Residency At Hard Rock Rumored For...

June 9, 2014 at 1:01 PM | by | Comments (0)

No, this is not the real KISS... yet.

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.

June 4, 2014 at 7:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

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 Is Just Not That Into Ben Affleck

May 5, 2014 at 1:18 PM | by | Comments (5)

Batman Ben Affleck was asked to stop playing blackjack at the Hard Rock last week after reportedly being "too good." The alleged card-counting crime fighter was removed from a blackjack table by security. Card counting isn’t illegal, but it’s frowned upon by casinos. Casinos have the right to disallow anyone from playing their games.

Where To Find Loose Slots In Vegas

May 1, 2014 at 7:57 PM | by | Comment (1)

As part of our search for the best gambling odds, we constantly seek the best blackjack, craps and video poker games. Generally, slot machines aren’t high on the list for gamblers seeking the best odds in a casino. Slot machine payback is referred to in a different language. People aren't looking for slot machines with the smallest house advantage. They're looking for loose slots. Loose slots have the highest returns (yay) while tight slots have the lowest (boo).

So, where can you find the loosest slots in Vegas? Exactly where you think and probably not where you visit. The second best slot machine returns in the country are found just off the Vegas Strip. Off Strip casinos like The Orleans, Hard Rock, Palms and Silverton have slot machines that return 94.64% of the money played.

Cantor Releases 2014 NFL Season Win Totals

March 11, 2014 at 3:23 PM | by | Comment (1)

Most of us are getting ready for March Madness or the first pitch of the Major League Baseball regular season. Football isn't front and center with most people that bet on sports, but that hasn't stopped Cantor Gaming (CG Technology) from looking forward to the NFL season. It's the first sportsbook operator to post season win totals for the next pro football season.

Over the past couple seasons, Cantor has become the first sportsbook operator to release NFL season win totals but this marks the earliest they've posted them to date. In fact, this is the earliest any sportsbook operator has released season win totals. Ever. Free agency hasn't begun yet and the NFL Draft is weeks away, but if you can see into the future maybe you're ready to place bets on how teams will perform. Take a look:

No Lies: Guns N' Roses Residency Returning This Spring

February 4, 2014 at 4:43 PM | by | Comments (2)

Back in December, Guns N' Roses fan site MyGnrForum reported on rumors that the band was planning a follow-up to their successful 2012 Vegas residency at the Hard Rock. A few days ago, the Guns N' Roses Facebook page started teasing confirmation of a Spring 2014 return via pics of poster and billboard announcements.

As instructed, we've texted 'GNR' to 97580, but haven't received any details yet on what the spring will bring. Unfortunately, that's all we gots for now. So, while we know where you are and sort of when, the how long and exactly has yet to be released to a jungle of fans.

Is Axl Rose Bringing Guns N' Roses Back to Vegas?

December 12, 2013 at 5:58 PM | by | Comment (1)

Santana moved his elsewhere but never left Las Vegas, Motley Crue quickly returned for seconds after claiming "first" for hard rockers while Planet Hollywood scored a Brit. Whether it's the crowds, a break from traveling or just plain dollar signs, Vegas residencies have long held a successful formula for entertainers. With some outliers, of course.

So, it's no surprise that after taking over Jimmy Kimmel, restaurant menus, streets and, well, pretty much all of the Hard Rock, Guns N' Roses fans have wondered whether one of the biggest bands of all-time would return for another round in the residency ring.

Metalachi At Vinyl Brings Mariachi That Rocks

Where: 4455 Paradise Road [map], 89169

This writer loves Mariachi music.

I just can't help it. After reading a book by Elijah Wald called Narcocorrido some years back and, subsequently, diving into the history and culture of Mexican music, I somehow hooked myself.

For a guy who came up on a steady diet of midwestern punk rock and heavy metal, this is a bit unorthodox. Maybe, it was the years working in restaurant kitchens that sparked the interest. Recently, after being offered a chance to review Hard Rock's new(ish) Monday night act, Metalachi, and looking them up on Google, I couldn't say “yes” fast enough.

Rock Paper Photo Clicks At Hard Rock

June 14, 2013 at 5:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

When we first discovered fine art photography gallery, Rock Paper Photo, was moving into the space next to Culinary Dropout, we thought it a perfect fit. Now that we've dropped in for a visit, we've learned the company thinks so, too.

While the exterior sign promotes a very arresting Beatles image from Tom Murray, right by the entrance you'll encounter The Ramones hammering away in The Beatles' hometown of Liverpool, back in 1977. We don't know if that's intentional but it does give a quick indication of the breadth of the collection. From pop, blues, classic rock, punk to the latest and greatest. While the company also sells non-musical content, it's musicians on display here. And captured in some extraordinary moments.

Framed images circle the room. Walk in and take a tour. Sit a spell on the leather chairs. Whenever possible, the prints have been signed by the photographer. Depending on the size of the limited edition, the prices can run from $100 to thousands of dollars. If there's something you like, talk to the very friendly and knowledgeable staff for pricing options. Most are available in affordable packages.

IPads are on hand to browse the company's 10,000 plus image inventory. You can order a print right there, but they've noticed a dramatic increase in online orders following their launch in Vegas. They think people are walking in, looking, thinking and then ordering at home.

All the performer photos you see around the Hard Rock, and in the display cases, were bought from this company, so as you walk around the exhibits and see a picture you can't live without, take a note of the details, snap a quick photo reminder and head over to Rock Paper Photo. They'll search for it and quote you a price.

Events will be scheduled in the space beginning next month. Right now, they are settling in. Doors open at 11 a.m. and it's well worth a stop on your next visit to the Hard Rock. And ask to see the photo of Ozzy Osborne. It's absolutely not what you're expecting.
