The bad economy, $5 beer prices, and long lines didn’t put a damper on the high spirits last night in Las Vegas as The Killers performed to a sold-out crowd during the opening night of The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.
Among the celebrities in attendance were tennis great Andre Agassi and wife Steffi Graf, actor Owen Wilson and Stephen Dorff.
The new Joint is a bigger, shinier version of the old Joint, complet with a better sound and lighting system and overall crowd experience. It also features balconies and VIP suites designed for high rollers, with food ranging from sushi to burger sliders.
Tonight’s show is Avenged Sevenfold and on Sunday Paul McCartney takes the stage.
The looming question that remains is whether the new Joint and the $750 million renovation can help to bring back the good ol’ entertainment days when virtually all major performer performed at the Las Vegas venue.
