Summer 2018 is nearly upon us, so it’s time to start planning your getaways! One of the best ways to celebrate summer is to catch some live music and Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada has the lineup and concert venues you’re looking for. This summer, visit the Grand Theatre for a true concert hall feel, LEX Nightclub for an all-night party with leading DJs and hip-hop artists, or some of our many other entertainment options.

Let’s learn more about the art and science between different venues and some of the names you can catch at Grand Sierra Resort this summer!


The Grand Theatre

Our Grand Theatre welcomes chart-topping artists from every genre and is one of the finest performing arts centers in the country. It occupies nearly an acre of space, making it one of the largest stages in Reno. Its recent $10 million renovation means more luxurious seats, more leg room, wider aisles, and tiered row seating. The theatre also has on orchestra pit that’s often used as additional seating or standing area right in front of the stage for those high-energy shows.

The acoustics in the Grand Theatre are phenomenal and the whole space was built with sound quality in mind. As you can see in the infographic below, theaters and concert halls are some of the best places to see concerts when acoustics are the priority. Subtle design details in the walls, floors, stage, and doors can all add to the ideal sound balance.

This summer, the Grand Theatre will host mega-artists like Counting Crows, Alice Cooper, TOTO, and many more.


LEX Nightclub

For a lively, dance-the-night-away venue, LEX Nightclub is the place to be. At 25,000 square feet, LEX features three full bars, 33 VIP tables and a bevy of deluxe amenities to create the experience of a lifetime. The nightclub also features an indoor pool partially covered by a glass dance floor, creating the illusion of dancing on water. This summer, catch some of today’s hottest DJs and artists at LEX, like Nelly, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Ginuwine.

Compared to theaters, nightclubs are a great place to catch artists that are focused on the party. While available seating might be limited, multi-million dollar sound and light systems crank up the fun vibe.  LEX features a $2 million lighting system, with 9 intricate skylights.

A concert venue can change the way you experience live music and each type of venue has its own art and science. Learn more in our infographic below, and we hope to see you at a Grand Sierra Resort concert this summer.
