KISS Rocks Vegas Takes Over Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Starting Today!

by Lauren Cheek

Today, KISS begin their much anticipated first Las Vegas residency at The Joint.  KISS: KISS Rocks Vegas is a nine show run that spans over November 5 – November 23.  Fans can expect a spectacular grand entrance, exclusive food & beverage specials, an exciting set list, elaborate stage setup, and signature pyrotechnics. 

Vice President of Booking for AEG Live Las Vegas, Bobby Reynolds says,“For 40 years, KISS has been putting on some of the most exciting shows in music and we finally got them where they should be – Las Vegas – at The Joint. We couldn’t be more excited to see what they’re gearing up for!”

Gearing up is exactly what Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is doing!  KISS will be making a spectacular entrance for their opening show tomorrow night – via helicopter!  Join us Wednesday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. outside of main valet (under the iconic guitar) and watch as KISS arrives.  This event is open to the public, so get down here early to secure a great viewing spot!

The fun doesn’t stop there! The hotel is being completely transformed for KISS! Hard Rock Hotel’s restaurants and bars have created special KISS inspired menus to welcome the rockers and their army, which will be available through the entire residency.  Some of the delicious speciality dishes you can find during the KISS residency are:

35 Steaks + Martinis' Smoke, which is a cold smoked Scottish salmon, prepared with capers, red onion, dill, cucumbers, buttered crostinis, herbs and garlic cheese

Mr. Lucky’s Lick It Up, a dessert complete with a house waffle cone with chocolate rim, strawberry-chocolate jelly roll, candied almond rocky road ice cream, warm fudge sauce, chocolate pop rocks and commemorative Hard Rock Hotel & Casino drum sticks

Pink Taco's All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose, a sizzling molcajete for two, topped with grilled shrimp, carne asada, pollo asada, peppers and onions, rice, ancho-tomato broth and radish

And of course we can't forget Ian Kohoutek's, Hard Rock Hotel's Executive Director of Beverage, drink creations available at all casino bars during the KISS residency:

Animalize - a mixture of Don Julio Añejo, lime juice, orange juice and grapefruit juice

Dynasty - a  refreshing concoction of Ketel One Vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup and soda water

KISS Gold - a combination of Crown Royal Whisky, Chambord Liqueur and Southern Comfort

After rock n’ rolling all nite, KISS fans will want to relax and rejuvenate at Reliquary Spa with their two KISS inspired treatments. God of Thunder, is a 50-minute treatment featuring an exfoliating body scrub, invigorating Vichy shower rinse and hydrating body moisturizer; and Deuce, is a 50-minute, head-to-toe treatment combining a Swedish Massage with a quality facial.

No rock residency is complete without souvenirs.  B Side, the KISS pop-up shop, is located next to Culinary Dropout and serves as a hybrid KISS retail store and art gallery.  The band’s Authentic Anvil ™ Road Case will be on display and guests will have a chance to win it through this contest. KISS guitarist and singer, Paul Stanley, will conduct three book signings, open to the public, on Nov. 8, 15 and 22 at 1 p.m.
