The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City Is Open

The newest IGA member held a rocking grand opening earlier this month. 

The Iowa Gaming Association would like to welcome and introduce the newest member of our organization: The Hard Hotel & Casino Sioux City. This new land-based casino in Sioux City had its official grand opening on August 1st. Music celebrity and Staind band member Aaron Lewis threw out the first dice roll at the celebration. 

The party continued with gaming, a diverse mix of gourmet food and a fireworks display. Following his inaugural dice roll, Lewis played the first concert at the Hard Rock's live entertainment venue, Anthem. Hard Rock's stellar entertainment bookings continue through the year, with other big-name acts scheduled: 

  • Goo Goo Dolls and Daughtry (Aug. 30)
  • Uncle Kracker (Sept. 5) 
  • Phil Vassar (Sept. 13) 
  • Smash Mouth (Oct. 10) 
  • Better Than Ezra (Nov. 14)
  • View the entire Hard Rock events schedule here
The new fully integrated gaming resort features 835 slot machines, a variety of table games, as well as an outdoor event park to complement Anthem. You can learn more about the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City on our website or by visiting theirs.
