Guitars were smashed to mark the opening of the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park on Wednesday. More than 2,200 glowing video lottery terminals fill the 200,000-square-foot gaming venue. It is highlighted with about $1 million of rock star memorabilia including Eddie Van Halen's Harley Davidson and stage costumes from the Jackson Five, the Osmonds, Bette Midler and Lady Gaga. The Hard Rock Live, a 1,800-seat music venue with a maximum standing capacity of 2,600, featured Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on opening night. Night Ranger will perform Dec. 27 and Huey Lewis and the News will play Jan. 24.
