The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Biloxi is a casino and resort located in Biloxi, Mississippi. The resort was constructed in 2005 and originally scheduled to open on September 1 of that year. However, a couple of days before the scheduled grand opening, Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, destroying the casino and damaging the resort. Reconstruction and reopening of the property was in limbo for a time because of a legal dispute between owner Premier Entertainment and the trustee for bondholders on the property. Premier later began architectural work on a newly rebuilt facility, awaiting resolution of the dispute, prior to workers securing the property for the 2007 hurricane season. Rebuilding of the facility has completed, and the casino opened to the public on June 30, 2007 at 10:00am CT. Kid Rock opened the hotel on July 7, 2007. Other concert performances during in the first month of business included 3 Doors Down, Poison, Ratt, and Cheap Trick.
