Gary Indiana's $30M Hard Rock Casino held its guitar-smashing grand opening in May. Before the end of 2021, the Hard Rock Live concert venue will premiere.

After the stages had been dark for so long, it's great to get back to live concerts, even if there are cell phones in the air everywhere. Now, a brand new state-of-the art 2,000 seat venue is about to open at the Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana. The Gary, Indiana property has tapped Disturbed as the first band to perform at the new Hard Rock Live.

Formed in nearby Chicago, Disturbed's debut album The Sickness skyrocketed them to fame in 2000. Five of the band's seven albums consecutively debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. (An outfit that you may have heard of called Metallica is the only other hard rock group to do so in the history of the chart.) Disturbed has sold 16+ million albums globally, making them one of the most successful rock bands in the modern era alongside Slipknot, Godsmack, and few others. Their somber rendition of "The Sound of Silence" earned the band a Grammy nomination in 2017.

I couldn’t be more excited to announce the opening of Hard Rock Live. There is no better way to kick things off than with Chicago based rockers Disturbed!

-Matt Schuffert, President of Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana
