New Ticketing Platform, AXS Ticketing, Featuring Never-Before Available, Fan-Friendly Technology Launches at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

jointHardRocknewaeg











NEW TICKETING PLATFORM, AXS TICKETING,
FEATURING NEVER-BEFORE AVAILABLE,
FAN-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY LAUNCHES 
AT THE JOINT AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO

Beginning today, The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino welcomes a new era of fan-friendly ticketing with the transitioning of the venue’s ticketing services to AXS Ticketing (pronounced access).

Tickets to all concerts at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will now be available at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, online at AXS.com or by calling 1-888-9-AXS-TIX.

Since launching in August 2011, AEG has already introduced the new platform at 47 venues, including STAPLES Center in Los Angeles and London’s The O2 arena, the world’s top-selling concert venue since 2007.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with one of the most innovative ticketing platforms in the market,” said Chas Smith, Vice President of Entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel. “We’re looking forward to sharing this technology with our customers.”

“From the beginning, our goal with AXS has been to challenge the inconvenient experience and conventional thinking that has dominated ticketing for decades,” said Bryan Perez, AEG’s president of digital, ticketing and media. “By continually focusing first on fans’ needs with products like AXS Invite and our virtual Waiting Room, we are changing the way tickets are sold all over the world, and we are excited to bring this new approach to The Joint, one of the top venues in the concert industry.”

Ground-breaking features of AXS Ticketing at launch include:

A social ticketing breakthrough, AXS Invite™, is a revolutionary new feature that will allow fans to reserve adjacent tickets for friends so they can all sit together. Once the seats are reserved, through a one-step invitation process, the initial purchaser can then invite his or her friends to buy the nearby seats via Facebook or email, eliminating the need for one purchaser to fund the entire transaction and helping fans more easily attend in groups.

A virtual AXS Waiting Room™  opens shortly before the public on-sale, giving fans greater transparency into the buying process by displaying real-time ticket pricing and availability information, as well as shortening transaction times by allowing fans to enter their payment details prior to general tickets going on sale. The Waiting Room™ also will allow venues to see the demand for tickets at any given time before and during the on-sale.

AXS features several improved ticketing options. Fans can go paperless with mobile ticketing. Creating easy, convenient access to events, mobile ticketing through AXS allows people to use their smartphones to get into an event. Additionally, with regards to fees, AXS will not charge a delivery fee to customers who print their event tickets at home.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s other entertainment venues, Vinyl and Soundwaves, also will be on the AXS Ticketing platform.

For more information about AXS Ticketing or to purchase tickets for an event, fans can log on to AXS.com.

The Who, one of rock’s legendary and defining bands performs its iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, Feb.8.

The popular English band will perform songs from Quadrophenia, which is the band’s sixth album. Founding members Roger Daltreyand Pete Townshed will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals) to deliver an unforgettable night of classics. The album’s title is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia and exemplifies the four varying personalities of the band members who created the album. IGN placed Quadrophenia at No. 1 on its list of the “Greatest Classic Rock Albums of All Time” and Q magazine placed it on its list of the “100 Greatest British Albums Ever.” The album features such classic WHO songs as “The Real Me,” “5:15” and “Love Reign o’er Me.”

The critically acclaimed Quadrophenia raised the bar for rock albums as an art form and hit No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard album chart. In a 4.5 out of 5 star review, Rolling Stone’s David Fricke said, “Quadrophenia, released in 1973, was a superior tale with more-taut songwriting; it was grounded in [Pete] Townshend’s memories of growing up angry, anguished and mod in the early 60s, and produced with the panoramic tension of ‘Who’s Next.’”

After a whirlwind year, Lewis began working on what would become his first full-length album, The Road, in the fall of 2011. On The Road, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another. Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal. Nevertheless, they’re all equally powerful, vibrant, and unforgettable.

American funk and soul artist Robert Randolph performs at SOUNDWAVES at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Thursday, Sept. 20.

 

Randolph’s debut album, Live at the Wetlands (2002), included musical influences from famous soul groups like Earth, Wind & Fire and Sly & The Family Stone. The album’s success paved the way for him to be recognized on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list in September 2003. Throughout the 2000s, some of the artist’s most popular work included ABC’s NBA theme song “We Got Hoops” and well-known single “Aint Nothing Wrong With That” which was used in several NBC commercials and Discovery Channel’s summer lineup.

 

Randolph’s newest album, We Walk This Road (2010), is a celebration of black music over the past 100 years and its social messages from the last 30 years. The songs tie together messages of hope and positivity among black culture with the purpose of inspiring people.
