On March 12th, this guitar virtuoso, who has also shared the stage with Steven Tyler, Prince, Carlos Santana, OneRepublic and Alice Cooper (whom she is touring with this Summer), released her new album, Heaven In This Hell, produced by Dave Stewart (of the Eurythmics).
During the show at Vinyl, fans will be to treated to a set list that includes tracks off her latest album Heaven In This Hell, as well as a few of her previous hits. A meet and greet will follow her performance.
Earlier that same day, in a brief ceremony which will take place in the casino lobby, Paul Davis, VP of Entertainment for the Hard Rock Hotel, will unveil a display honoring Orianthi's work. For 30 minutes following the ceremony, Orianthi will sign autographs for fans.
