Adding an all new dimension to the Universe of Rock 'n Roll, right next door to the all new Hard Rock Café, is Hard Rock Live, featuring its unmistakable "Roman Coliseum" architecture. This state-of-the-future live performance venue showcases regular performances by top-name national and international artists.
A number of veteran rock stars were consulted in the design of this Hard Rock Live, the first in the United States. This unique performance venue can be configured as a nightclub OR a concert hall, offering an intimate club experience for those who want to get close to the performers, while at the same time a more comfortable arrangement for those content to watch and listen. the first floor can be configured with rows of seats, cabaret-style with tables and chairs, or left open for dancing; while visitors will find permanent, orlando-style tiers of reserved seating up on the second level. the second-floor seats are plush and offer comfortable leg room, as well as an unobstructed view of the stage.
| Despite the presence of two modern 10-by-10-foot video walls flanking the stage, the intent of this Orlando's design is to take you back to the great years of early rock 'n' roll. Fans and performers alike will appreciate the sense of history that pervades the orlando. All four themed dressing rooms are decorated with rock 'n' roll memorabilia. One of the VIP lounges even includes a couch that once belonged to John Lennon. the stage itself is equipped with scrims from the last Jimmy Page-Robert Plant tour and the Rolling Stones 1969 tour, as well as rotating drum risers from Orlando's own Backstreet Boys. |
