The Joint at Hard Rock Remains Best Venue to see a Concert in Vegas

There's a reason Las Vegas is known as “the entertainment capital of the world” with some of the biggest and best shows and concerts performed there on a nightly basis. That is why Sin City is an essential tour stop for most singers and bands passing through on their way to the West Coast. Not only are there long-term residency shows like Celine Dion and Britney Spears filling up venues on the Strip, but many other casinos have built some of the best places to listen to music in the United States.

That being said, here are the Top 3 concert venues in Vegas:

The Joint  

Back in the day, The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino was the best spot to see the hottest musical acts in Vegas when it opened in 1995. Fitting up to 2,000 concert-goers despite having only 1,500 seats, the old Joint had unbelievable acoustics and was intimate enough that you felt like you were practically on stage with the band. When the new Joint opened in 2009, it doubled in size to 4,000 seats but still managed to keep its same sound quality, which is why popular bands like Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Journey and Def Leppard have called it home during recent residencies. 

The Pearl

Much like the old Joint, The Pearl at The Palms is best known for its intimacy and the big acts that have filled it up since the casino opened in 2001. Holding anywhere between 1,000 and 2,500 people and featuring 18 private boxes, The Pearl has hosted the NHL Awards Show and an eclectic mix of talent ranging from older acts such as Chicago and Jackson Browne to newer performers like Ray LaMontagne.

T-Mobile Arena  

Even though it just opened in April, T-Mobile Arena has quickly become a popular destination for tourists looking to take in a concert during their visit. Locally-grown band The Killers officially opened T-Mobile Arena with a sold-out show on April 6, and the 20,000-seat venue will host Garth Brooks, Coldplay and Drake later in 2016 while also serving as the future home of a new NHL expansion team in 2017.
