Hard Rock's memorabilia collection began at the Old Park Lane Hard Rock London, 
the first Hard Rock Cafe, with Eric Clapton marking his favorite seat in the 
cafe by hanging up his guitar on the wall. Now 50 years later, Elton adds 
another piece to the world's largest and most valuable authentic music 
memorabilia collection at Hard Rock.

"As Hard Rock celebrates its 50th year anniversary and Elton celebrates 50 
years of touring, we're honored to mark this occasion by adding a fitting piece 
of memorabilia from an artist we've had the immense pleasure of working with 
throughout the years," said Jim Allen, Chairman for Hard Rock International. 
"The iconic Gucci outfit that Elton has gifted to us will memorialize these 
special moments in time, while allowing Hard Rock to tell and celebrate artist 
stories for generations to come."

Hard Rock's vast memorabilia collection includes authentic and one-of-a-kind 
artifacts celebrating all genres of music including John Lennon's original 
hand-written "Imagine" song lyrics, pieces from contemporary artists such as 
Billie Eilish and Ed Sheeran, and other artifacts from Elton John. Its music 
memorabilia pieces are a core reflection of the brand DNA and a distinct staple 
of the visual décor around every Hard Rock property.  For more information
