Orlando, Fla., June 19, 2009 – Hard Rock International is bringing its worldwide Ambassadors of Rock Tour to New York! Kenny Chesney, the four-consecutive Academy of Country Music® and four-time and reigning Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, will perform at Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on Tuesday, September 15th, as part of Hard Rock’s 2009 Ambassadors of Rock Tour, a global concert series featuring top artists and bands.

Known for his high energy performance, Chesney is currently out on his Sun City Carnival Tour – which will see the biggest North American ticket seller this century in any genre play a dozen stadiums. With his Greatest Hits II marking his 9th #1 Country Album debut, Chesney collects the songs that have come to be the soundtrack of a generation coming of age right now: “When The Sun Goes Down,” “Summertime,” “Living In Fast Forward,” “Anything But Mine,” “The Good Stuff,” “Beer In Mexico,” “I Go Back,” and his current #1 “Out Last Night.” Having been deemed “Entertainer of the People” by The Los Angeles Times, Chesney’s Hard Rock Ambassadors of Rock Performance will be a more intimate performance, reflective of the man beyond the million-ticket-selling phenomenon.

As part of this global program we are hosting iconic artists around the world and we are thrilled to bring one of the world’s biggest and most successful stadium acts to the crossroads of the world – our New York Cafe,” said Sean Dee, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Hard Rock International. “Kenny Chesney’s history of stellar, high-energy performances is the perfect complement to an already impressive international tour lineup.

Music that connects is music that rocks,” Chesney explained. “To me, the Hard Rock Ambassadors of Rock Tour is about the experience of music, of coming together, of how blinding it can be when it’s good… whether it’s Bruce Springsteen or Nine Inch Nails, Neil Young, the Killers or us. I’m honored to take part in this because that place where music and people come together to really let go, well, that’s what we’re all about.

Committed to its “Love All, Serve All” creed, Hard Rock will donate proceeds from Chesney’s New York appearance to benefit PLAN!T NOW – an organization that empowers coastal residents to mitigate disasters in severe storm and hurricane-prone regions by being prepared. PLAN!T Now provides outreach, resources and connections for residents in coastal regions in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean, to create a dialog and understanding of the power of preparedness. Kenny Chesney is proud to serve on PLAN!T Now's board of directors. Learn more at www.planitnow.org.

Rockin’ Around the Globe!
For the fourth consecutive year, Ambassadors of Rock will bring together Hard Rock Cafes, Live venues, Hotels and Casinos around the globe to help spread the universal language of rock. Nine Inch Nails joins an eclectic group of artists on Hard Rock’s 2009 Ambassadors of Rock Tour, including O.A.R. in Orlando, Kenny Chesney in New York and an all-star lineup at Hard Rock Calling in London with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, The Killers, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper and Relentless 7, Fleet Foxes and The Gaslight Anthem.

Pack Your Bags and Get A Passport!

To commemorate Founders' Day, June 14th, the anniversary of the opening of the very first Hard Rock Cafe (in London, BTW), Hard Rock Cafe Bali and Hard Rock Hotel Bali held a bazaar full of fun! Kicking off around noon and heading into the evening, tons of entertainment included DJs, fashion shows, a bartender flair competition, circus workshop, dance show, stilt walkers, massages, and much more.

They also held a Burger & Hot Dog Bash for 48 Kuta Beach lifeguards who were invited to chow down on Hard Rock's Legendary Burgers for free. Sounds like one hell of a party. Congrats on a great day, Hard Rock Hotel Bali and Hard Rock Cafe Bali. "Love All, Serve All"!
