Arcade Fire *this week* Thursday, April 14 at 8 p.m. (Special guest Local Natives) Tickets start at $40 SOLD OUT
Arcade Fire makes a stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday, April 14. The band recently won “Album of the Year” for their third album The Suburbs at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.
Montreal’s Arcade Fire explored the theme of neighborhoods on their 2004 breakthrough album Funeral (chosen by Rolling Stone as the No. 1 album of the decade). In 2009, frontman Win Butler received an e-mail from an old friend he grew up with in the suburbs of Houston. At the same time, other band members of a similarly suburban origin across Canada had revisited their childhood environments and in some cases found there was not much left. Buildings were boarded up, if they still existed at all, new roads and rivers had magically appeared, altering the landscape that now only existed in faded photographs. When they reconvened, the first song they wrote was The Suburbs’ title track. As The Suburbs started to take shape, a cohesive group of songs emerged including themes of loss and renewal, drawing inspiration from scarcity, generations past and future, responsibility and maturity and hoping that something pure can last.
The Suburbs features more breadth and beauty than any previous Arcade Fire recording, including sparse pop (“Modern Man”), icy new wave epics (“No Celebration”), anthemic punk (“Month of May”), lush balladry (“Suburban War”), and hard-driving tracks such as “Empty Room” and “Ready to Start.”
The seven-piece band still believes that it takes a village to perform a song. There is plenty of room to breathe on any given track; tiny details are doled out bit by bit. That attention to detail and refusal to accept easy answers embodies much of what the Arcade Fire does. This fiercely independent band has faced pressure from every corner of the music industry and has carved out something beyond the grasps of the major label system with great success, a combination of Internet word-of-mouth and old-fashioned live show impressions.
Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits *FINAL SHOWS* April 20, 22, 23, 24, 27, 29 and 30 May On sale now In May 2009, Carlos Santana signed on as the first rock ‘n’ roll resident artist in Las Vegas with the launch of Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Showcasing the band’s career-spanning classics such as “Oye Como Va,” “Black Magic Woman,” “Evil Ways” and “Maria Maria,” Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits takes fans on a multi-sensory journey through the most prolific Santana songs. Each show includes a unique take on the band’s repertoire to create a one-of-a-kind experience for show-goers. Santana plays approximately 36 times per year at The Joint, which is an exclusive AEG Live multi-year deal.
Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits has been a favorite among fans and critics alike. The Los Angeles Times said that Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits “proves what an unusual rock icon [Carlos Santana] is” and highlighted the “deeply energetic” performances of his long-time band members, who routinely have audience members dancing in the aisles.
The Joint was voted “Best New Major Concert Venue” at the 2010 Pollstar Awards and is the only venue west of the Mississippi where fans can see Santana.

The Moody Blues’ legendary hit “Nights In White Satin,” originally released in 1967 from their landmark Days Of Future Passed album, recently landed at No. 2 on the UK Rock Chart and at No. 27 on the BBC Radio 1 chart, marking the fourth time the single has charted in its more than 40-year history. The song’s resurgence ignited from a recent smash cover performance by Matt Cardle, current winner of Simon Cowell’s hit UK show “The X Factor.”
The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold albums. Their incredible roster of hits includes “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Ride My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” “Your Wildest Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a few.

Tim McGraw Tuesday, June 7 at 8 p.m. (Special guest Brantley Gilbert) Tickets start at $67.50 On sale now Tim McGraw, named country music’s No. 1 touring act of 2010 by Billboard, makes a special stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Tuesday, June 7.
Tim McGraw has sold more than 40 million units and dominated the charts with 32 No. 1 singles, including his latest, “Felt Good On My Lips,” a bonus track from Number One Hits. With 7.8 million radio spins, he was the most-played artist of the past decade. Southern Voice, his most recent studio album, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top Country Albums” chart and the title track hit No. 1 on Billboard’s “Country Songs” chart. His “Southern Voice” tour was the No. 1 country music tour of 2010. McGraw has won three Grammy awards, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association awards, 10 American Music awards, three People’s Choice awards and numerous other awards.
Deftones Saturday, June 11 at 8 p.m. (Special guests The Dillinger Escape Plan and Le Butcherettes) Tickets start at $30.50 On sale now After a sold out show with Alice in Chains in fall 2010, Deftones return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, June 11 with special guests The Dillinger Escape Plan and Le Butcherettes.
Deftones, one of the most enduring and influential forces in modern rock, released their latest album Diamond Eyes in May 2010. The sixth full-length studio effort by the Grammy-winning, platinum-certified group was produced and mixed by Nick Raskulinecz (Alice in Chains, Coheed & Cambria, Foo Fighters). The band recorded the album after their best friend and bassist Chi Cheng sustained a debilitating brain injury from a car accident in November 2008. MySpace.com recently premiered a new video for lead single “Diamond Eyes,” which was shot in Los Angeles and directed by Roboshobo (Metallica, Mastodon, B-52’s).
As a band out of high school, Deftones mixed trip hop with thrash, melodic vocals with crushing reverb and pretty with ugly. As chart-toppers and headliners, they have crossed over genres and defied categorization. Above all, Deftones have stuck together throughout their often-turbulent tenure and now deliver one of the most compelling records of their career.
Critics, marketers and radio alike have struggled with where to place or how to define Deftones. The band has played with punk rockers L7, toured with Metallica and appealed to some of the same fan base as Morrissey and generally defied simple, and ultimately pointless genre classification.
Widespread Panic Friday, July 15 – Saturday, July 16 at 8 p.m. (Special guests Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe – July 15; Lotus – July 16) Tickets start at $44.50 On sale now This year marks the 25th anniversary for Widespread Panic and their 2011 tour includes a special two-night stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16.

The band performed to a sold out crowd at The Joint in October 2010 and selected to return to the venue as part of the anniversary tour. The band and fans loved the atmosphere at The Joint and special activities will be planned throughout the property for the weekend as part of their celebratory return.
After 25 years, Widespread Panic continues to be one of the top touring acts in the country, playing packed houses and setting attendance records throughout the U.S. Their live performances have become legendary and their fans travel from all over to witness the experience.
