Hard Rock Stadium Reviews

Wonderful stadium - newly refurbished, and it shows. Excellent view. Seats comfortable. Easy to access, though no public transport whatsoever to the event I attended (Super Bowl). more »
The last concert of The Rolling Stones, No Filter tour, and probably the best concert of all time. The stadium was the perfect venue. A storm blew in on the last song, which made the finale even more spectacular. Mick is probably the best dancer of all time, and I hope they make one more comeback. Thanks Hard Rock!
The Rolling Stones concert at the Hard Rock Stadium was phenomenal! Five large screens at the back of the stage provided, easy viewing of this legendary band. An eclectic crowd of all ages, added to the night! Vendors for food and drinks were easily accessible from seating. Outdoor areas for smoking were nearby. Never more than five women in line for the bathroom, made getting back to the music great! I went with my best friend from high school, so the whole concert was truly amazing! ....🌸💖🌺💗😊....... gwen thorn
