Rock Report: Las Vegas Road to Be Renamed in Guns N’ Roses’ Honor
The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is located a few miles off that city's famous Strip on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road. However, in honor of the upcoming Guns N' Roses 'Appetite for Democracy' residency at one of Sin City's trendiest spots, Paradise Road will be temporarily renamed Paradise City Road.
On Wednesday (Oct. 31) afternoon at 2:30PM Pacific, there will be a ceremony near the hotel's main entrance, where the band will be presented with an official street sign by Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow. Executives from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and AEG Live, the producers of 'Appetite for Democracy,' will also be on hand.
Changes to reflect Guns N' Roses' arrival in Vegas are being made to the inside of the Hard Rock. The hotel has created commemorative chips, and all of its bars will serve six GNR-themed drinks, including Patience Punch, Welcome to the Jungle and Liquid Dream Shot.
'Appetite for Democracy' will run for 12 shows between Oct. 31 and Nov. 24 at the Joint, the hotel's 4,000-seat concert venue. The band are expected to perform songs from throughout their entire career. Tickets start at $45.
