Hard Rock Live

1 Seminole Way Hollywood, FL 33314 | Hollywood | 954-797-5531

Location Description:

A 5,500-seat indoor stadium provides the perfect staging, acoustics, and ambiance for an epic evening of music on any given night at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Casino in Hollywood. Whether it’s Lionel Richie, OneRepublic, Hall & Oates, Diana Ross, or Loretta Lynn, each act that graces the stage at Hard Rock Live is guaranteed to provide a rock-star-worthy night of hits. Depending on who’s in town, the crowd can range from a set of seniors who still like to kick it, shaking their booties till past their 9 p.m. bedtimes, or a younger set of folks who are down with the big-name pop-rock acts that make their way on tours. If you’re lucky, you can even catch the occasional preshow meet and greet, where band members often take pictures with fans as they hand over autographed personal memorabilia to the Hard Rock vaults.
