We present results of a new simulation of black hole production and decay at hadron colliders in theories with large extra dimensions and TeV-scale gravity. The main new feature is a full treatment of the spin-down phase of the decay process and the distributions of the associated Hawking radiation. Also included are improved modelling of the loss of angular momentum and energy in the production process and a wider range of options for the Planck-scale termination of the decay. We present results from these simulations, with emphasis on the consequences and experimental signatures of black hole rotation at the LHC.
