It is common for many big acts to stay at the hotel when they visit the Tampa area. Since one of the largest and most popular venues is directly across the freeway from Hard Rock it is perfect hotel for major musical acts visiting the area.
Across from Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is the Ford Amphitheatre and Florida State Fairgrounds.

Many of the biggest musical acts visiting the Tampa area come to this stage to perform for droves of fans. The outdoor setting provides an extra element to the entertainment as it is common for concert goers to participate in a variety of antics including rolling down the hills, mud sliding during rainy days, and even tossing around a beach ball.
Part of the area is the Florida State Fairgrounds. This massive complex is used for some of the biggest events that come to the area including the hugely popular recreational vehicle show, and of course, the Florida State Fair, which draws in visitors from around the state and beyond.
