Get an up-close look at pieces of legendary music history from the never-before-seen â€œTreasures of the Hard Rockâ€ traveling memorabilia exhibit that runs from Monday, June 3, 2013 through Monday, June 10, 2013Â at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The exhibit featuresÂ iconic itemsÂ from two one-of-a-kind collections pulled from Hard Rockâ€™s vault, â€œGone Too Soonâ€ and â€œMusic Gives Back â€“ Rock â€˜Nâ€™ Roll Philanthropy.â€
â€œGone Too Soonâ€ pays tribute to music icons whose lives and careers were tragically cut short. It features items from contemporary talent such as an outfit worn by Lisa â€œLeft Eyeâ€ Lopes during TLCâ€™s CrazySexyCool tour and an 8th grade yearbook from Kurt Cobain to artifacts from legends of the past like Elvis Presleyâ€™s custom-made karate gi uniform and the unique Guild 12-string acoustic guitar Bob Marley used to record â€œIs This Love.â€
Hard Rockâ€™s â€œLove All, Serve Allâ€ mantra was the inspiration for â€œMusic Gives Back â€“ Rock â€˜Nâ€™ Roll Philanthropy.â€ This collection focuses on artists who have worked with the brand on various charitable campaigns throughout its more than 40 years. The exhibit features items including Elton Johnâ€™s sequined â€œUncle Samâ€ outfit, a purple silk shirt worn onstage by Jimi Hendrix and John Lennonâ€™s iconic round glasses.
Presented by Hard Rock International, the worldâ€™s original curator of music memorabilia with the most far-reaching collection. The 77,000+ piece collection, which celebrates new and legendary music icons, is the worldâ€™s greatest collection of music memorabilia. In 2013 Hard Rock developed â€œTreasures of the Hard Rock,â€ three traveling memorabilia exhibits each featuring a unique theme. The â€œGone Too Soon,â€ â€œMusic Gives Backâ€ and â€œ50 Years of Rock & Pop Fashionâ€ collections will tour Hard Rock locations in the U.S., Europe, and points in between throughout the year, giving fans an up-close look at pieces of history from music superstars and legends.
