Hard Rock Live Celebrates One Year of Rocking the Vegas Strip with a Special Benefit Concert by The English Beat with Guest Performances by Rusty Maples and Avalon Landing

All Proceeds from the July 11 Show will go directly to Help the Families of the Fallen Officers Alyn Beck, Igor Soldo and Joseph Wilcox

 

On Friday, July 11, 2014, Hard Rock Cafe is set to celebrate one year of its renamed intimate music venue Hard Rock Live with a special benefit concert honoring the lives of the victims of the June 8 tragedy. All the money raised by the $10 ticket will go directly to help the families of officers Alyn Beck, Igor Soldo and Joseph Wilcox.

 

“Not only is music so ingrained into the heart of Hard Rock, it has an incredible power to bring a community together,” said Andrew Courtney, Talent Buyer and Special Events Manager for Hard Rock Live, “and once we heard the tragic news that has affected so many of us here in Las Vegas, we knew we wanted to find a way to honor these three great men and hopefully the proceeds from this anniversary show can be our way of doing a small part in helping their families during this difficult time.”

 

The English Beat will be joined by local talent Rusty Maples and Avalon Landing. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://www.ticketweb.com/ or at the door.

 

After the iconic music venue’s official renaming last year, Hard Rock Live has booked some of the hottest names in music from rockers such as Mogwai, Umphrey’s McGee, and Sevendust to rappers such as Schoolboy Q, YG, and Tech N9ne along with EDM DJ’s 12th Planet, Crizzly, and Brillz.

 

Additional Artist Information

  • The English Beat is a 2 Tone ska revival band founded in Birmingham, England. Their sound uniquely fuses ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock.
  • Rusty Maples weregrown from the dry desert landscape of Las Vegas. The band’s sound captures the spirit of the West with their well-crafted blend of tender lyrics, classic themes and energetic Americana-inspired pop songs.
  • Avalon Landing was the recent winners of the annual Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands and had advanced to the top 25 world competition. The band’s catchy sound and rave reviews have made the band a staple opening act for tours passing through and other budding Vegas acts, such as Imagine Dragons.

Electro-legend Gary Numan to Perform at Hard Rock Live Las Vegas Friday, March 7

Electro-legend, Gary Numan, to Perform at Hard Rock Live Las Vegas Friday, March 7

 

WHAT:
Electro-legend, Gary Numan, brings his Splinter Tour 2014 to Hard Rock Live with Big Black Delta and Roman Remains on Friday, March 7th.

Numan broke into the scene in the late 70’s as front man for Tubeway Army. The creative force behind the punk-influenced electro pioneers, the band hit No.1 on the UK charts with the release of their most widely known song “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” off of their number one chart topping album, Replicas.

The following year Numan found global success after going solo with the release of his classic album The Pleasure Principle which featured the worldwide hit single ‘Cars’. The album was a rock album, sans guitars. Numan opted to use synthesizers fed through guitar effects pedals to achieve his now trademark distorted sound.

Known for his influence as the pioneer of commercial electronic and industrial music, Numan witnessed a revival in his career as he began receiving recognition from his peers. The release of Nine Inch Nails reworked version of ‘Metal’ and Foo Fighters cover of ‘Down in The Park’ helped to keep Numan’s music in the spotlight. Never one to stop innovating and pushing new boundaries, as is evidenced on his latest release, Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind), the heaviest and most accomplished electro album to date, which features collaborations with guitarist Robin Finck of Nine Inch Nails.

Numan’s energetic presence never ceases to please The Numanoids, as his loyal army of fans call themselves, which have stuck by Numan through the decades and all of his musical incarnations.

WHEN:
Friday, March 7
8 p.m. doors
21 and older.

WHERE:
Hard Rock Live Las Vegas
3771 Las Vegas Blvd S. (Across from Monte Carlo)
Las Vegas, NV 89109

Tickets are $28.50 in advance and $33.00 day of show. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 20th at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Hard Rock Cafe Box Office or at ticketweb.com.
