Hard Rock Live Celebrates One Year of Rocking the Vegas Strip with a Special Benefit Concert by The English Beat Tonight
Tonight, July 11, 2014, Hard Rock Cafe is set to celebrate one year of its renamed intimate music venue Hard Rock Live with a special benefit concert honoring the lives of the victims of the June 8 tragedy. All the money raised by the $10 ticket will go directly to help the families of officers Alyn Beck, Igor Soldo and Joseph Wilcox.
"Not only is music so ingrained into the heart of Hard Rock, it has an incredible power to bring a community together," said Andrew Courtney, Talent Buyer and Special Events Manager for Hard Rock Live, "and once we heard the tragic news that has affected so many of us here in Las Vegas, we knew we wanted to find a way to honor these three great men and hopefully the proceeds from this anniversary show can be our way of doing a small part in helping their families during this difficult time."
The English Beat will be joined by local talent Rusty Maples and Avalon Landing. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://www.ticketweb.com/ or at the door.
After the iconic music venue's official renaming last year, Hard Rock Live has booked some of the hottest names in music from rockers such as Mogwai, Umphrey's McGee, and Sevendust to rappers such as Schoolboy Q, YG, and Tech N9ne along with EDM DJ's 12th Planet, Crizzly, and Brillz.
Additional Artist Information
The English Beat is a 2 Tone ska revival band founded in Birmingham, England. Their sound uniquely fuses ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock.
Rusty Maples were grown from the dry desert landscape of Las Vegas. The band's sound captures the spirit of the West with their well-crafted blend of tender lyrics, classic themes and energetic Americana-inspired pop songs.
Avalon Landing was the recent winners of the annual Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands and had advanced to the top 25 world competition. The band's catchy sound and rave reviews have made the band a staple opening act for tours passing through and other budding Vegas acts, such as Imagine Dragons. The idea for Avalon Landing was sparked in a restaurant in Buffalo, New York and led to the band's formation ten months later in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Admission: $10 and all proceeds will be donated to helping the families of Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo and Joseph Wilcox
