| BREAKING NOW: Musical Treasures To Tour The U.S. And Europe--
February 2013 @ 17:19
It all started with one guitar. A Red Fender, in fact, donated by its owner, Eric Clapton. Now it's the largest music memorabilia collection on the planet - 70,000+ (and counting) rock 'n' roll icons, from a lock of hair to a five-ton psychedelic bus. On any given day, visit any Hard Rock location around the world, and you will see some of these pieces of history yourself. While Hard Rock's assortment has been viewed by millions over the years, they are now bringing even more memorabilia to admirers around the world, thanks to three tours criss-crossing both the U.S. and Europe.
- First up in the States, the Gone Too Soon tour will highlight just that, those artists who left us in their prime, leaving behind catalogs of incredible music. Among those represented on this tour are Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Kurt Cobain.
- Next for America, the Music Gives Back tour will highlight some of the most philanthropic of music-makers.
- Finally, in Europe, the 50 Years Of Rock & Pop Fashion will show off some incredible fashions worn by artists of the last 50 years.
Each tour will set up shop in a Hard Rock Cafe for one week, giving Hard Rock fans the chance to see, in one place, music memorabilia they would otherwise need to travel the globe to see.
Below are details of Music Gives Back, which includes Sir Elton (as seen above).
