A major thoroughfare between McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Strip is being temporarily renamed to honor a hall-of-fame band taking up residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Paradise Road will be temporarily renamed Paradise City Road in recognition of the Guns N’ Roses’ dozen shows from Halloween through Nov. 24 at the Hard Rock’s Joint. "Paradise City" is one of the band’s top-selling tunes.

The name change, endorsed by Clark County, will go into effect Wednesday and change back after band ends its run at the Joint.

The official announcement will come at 2:30 p.m. as band members and officials from the Hard Rock and Clark County celebrate the change during a ceremony in the Hard Rock’s parking lot at the corner of Paradise and East Harmon Avenue.
