Right around Thanksgiving, Raiding the Rock Vault celebrated its 1,000th show at Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel at the same time as its fifth anniversary—the epic musical assault originally debuted in 2012 at LA’s Mayan Theater. The dual special occasions were marked by a week of performances that included past and present band members­­ and, for the first time ever, encores—because you can never get enough rock.

If you missed the celebration, don’t fret. Raiding the Rock Vault carries on at full stream into the new year, with shows Saturday through Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. in the Hard Rock’s intimate music hall. The show’s rotating cast of all-star musicians—Heart guitarist Howard Leese, Bon Jovi bassist Hugh McDonald, Asia and Yes drummer Jay Schellen, REO Speedwagon guitarist Dave Amato, Quiet Riot singer Paul Shortino and many more—brings classic rock’s greatest hits to life during every performance, tunes from The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, U2, Aerosmith, Van Halen, AC/DC, Whitesnake and more.

The music is embedded in the DNA of this legendary Las Vegas destination, which makes Raiding the Rock Vault a perfect fit for the Hard Rock Hotel.
