Monday, June 3, 2013 through Monday, June 10, 2013
Get an up-close look at pieces of legendary music history from the never-before-seen “Treasures of the Hard Rock” traveling memorabilia exhibit that runs from June 3 – 10 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The exhibit features iconic items from two one-of-a-kind collections pulled from Hard Rock’s vault, “Gone Too Soon” and “Music Gives Back – Rock ‘N’ Roll Philanthropy.”
“Gone Too Soon” 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 “Left Eye” Lopes during TLC’s CrazySexyCool tour and an 8th grade yearbook from Kurt Cobain to artifacts from legends of the past like Elvis Presley’s custom-made karate gi uniform and the unique Guild 12-string acoustic guitar Bob Marley used to record “Is This Love.”
Hard Rock’s “Love All, Serve All” mantra was the inspiration for “Music Gives Back – Rock ‘N’ Roll Philanthropy.” 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 John’s sequined “Uncle Sam” outfit, a purple silk shirt worn onstage by Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon’s iconic round glasses.
