Proposed Hard Rock Entertainment World in Spain to include 15,000-capacity venue

Plans have revealed that Hard Rock Entertainment World, a proposed resort destination in Tarragona, Spain, would include a 15,000-capacity concert venue to host regional and international music acts and shows.

The stadium would also include a Hard Rock Cafe, and an accompanying Rock Shop, featuring Hard Rock merchandise.

Hard Rock International released details of the project that it claims would become the largest resort destination in Europe. It will consist of a combination of hotels and convention areas, as well as different entertainment, dining and shopping options.

The complex will be headlined by the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, which will involve collaboration with Catalonian entertainment resort PortAventura on the development of a family-oriented hotel of up to 500 rooms.

It would also assist in the development of a luxury tourism-shopping destination of approximately 10,000 square metres, featuring more than 75 shops.

The Hard Rock Hotel will be in the shape of a guitar and will become the focal point of the resort with upwards of 600 rooms within approximately 10,000 square metres.

The casino is said to host more than 1,200 slot machines and 100 table games, with a 6,000-square-metre pool and deck available for customers.

The Catalan Government has approved the project, with a maximum capacity of 745,000 square metres with every aspect of the resort included.

Hard Rock Entertainment World is estimated to cost more than €2bn.

“We’re honoured to work with the Catalan government on the creation of Hard Rock Entertainment World and look forward to bringing first-class entertainment and hospitality experiences to the region,” said Jim Allen, chairman and chief executive of Hard Rock International.
