Hard Rock Live was a 5,500-seat multi-purpose arena, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Hollywood, Florida. The arena hosted music and comedy shows, sporting events including world championship boxing, mixed martial arts, tennis, basketball and rodeo events, and corporate meetings, celebrity charity fundraisers and exhibitions. The venue has hosted numerous music acts, including Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Staind, Bon Jovi, The Who, The Killers, Patti LaBelle, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Gloria Estefan, Rod Stewart, Def Leppard, Ringo Starr, Prince, Andrea Bocelli, Tim McGraw and Fergie. The 2008 concert of classic rock band Bad Company at the venue was recorded for a 2010 release on CD and DVD.

The arena was also home to the Florida Frenzy indoor football team.[2]

As part of a $1.5 billion property-wide expansion, the arena was razed in March 2018 to be replaced by a new state-of-the-art 6,500 seat venue in a theater configuration, opening on October 25, 2019 with a concert by Maroon 5.[3] While the new venue is under construction, all future events will be held in the 3,500 seat Hard Rock Event Center, which opened in March 2018.[4]
