Coolest Feature: The furthest distance between the stage and any seat is just 155 feet
If you're looking to enjoy a show in a large arena while in Las Vegas, The Joint is among Sin City's finest. Housed by the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the showroom is a premiere venue for rock concerts passing through Vegas. The Joint's original incarnation closed in February 2009 with a Mötley Crüe performance—the perfect sendoff, and reopened triumphantly in April 2009, literally bigger and better. The current Joint now boasts a capacity of 4,000 spread out across three levels; there are about 700 seats on the balcony, as well as table and box seating inside of a VIP section. But, perhaps best of all, patrons are afforded an up close and personal experience with performers, as the furthest distance between the stage and any seat in the house is just 155 feet.
