Partners in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Say “They are Here to Stay.”
The grand opening of the new Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City whipped the already enthusiastic crowd into a frenzy with the smashing of guitars by celebrities, spectacular fireworks, dancers, and pulsating music, -vibrating you right out of your seat. It was a celebration of both, marking the opening of the Hard Rock and the simultaneous changing of the city landscape forever.
Forty years ago, when the first casino opened in this city on May, 1978 the local Press of Atlantic City wrote: “The city will never be the same again!”
Today, you could say, they are re-building “this city, on rock and roll!” And, if I can borrow the same phrase, “The city will never be the same again!”
