AEG Presents has expanded its role at The Joint, the 4,000-seat music venue inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, and will now manage it. AEG, which officially takes over operations in fall 2020, has booked concerts at The Joint since it opened in 2009.
The timeline with developer and Hard Rock casino owner JC Hospitality Partners coincides with next year’s rebranding of the property as Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. As part of the agreement, The Joint will upgrade its second floor with improved suites and more premium seat options.
AEG’s management deal makes sense because of the long relationship between the promoter and The Joint, said Gary Scott, chief operating officer for JC Hospitality Partners. Bobby Reynolds, senior vice president of AEG Presents Las Vegas, has booked the facility since day one, and the promoter will collaborate on renovations, Scott said. He would not say specifically whether AEG would invest in those upgrades.
