Did you know? Hard Rock has the best burgers in the world. They're legendary. Hence, the name: The Legendary Burger. We've been serving the best burgers around, since 1971. Believe it. Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton, two American ex-pats, craved a taste of home while living in London, so they brought their old home to, well, their new home. When Hard Rock Cafe opened its very first location, in London, on June 14, 1971, they didn't know that 40+ years later their creations would be legendary and considered by discerning eaters everywhere the best burger in the world!

The hamburger has long been considered America’s unofficial food, and since its founding by two Americans in London more than 40 years ago, Hard Rock Cafe has served as a burger ambassador – bringing its “Legendary” selection of delectable American burgers to 57 countries around the world.

To celebrate National Burger Month this May, Hard Rock surveyed fans around the globe to determine international burger-eating habits and gain some insights as to why this American-staple has become an international favorite.

State of the Burger – Statistics

  • Cheese please … 22 percent of fans cited cheese as their favorite burger topping, with Cheddar being the top cheese of choice for more than 55 percent of respondents (a shocking upset for American cheese lovers everywhere)
  • International relations … the American burger is best suited for a French companion with 60 percent of those asked naming the French fry as their burger’s perfect mate  (a mild surprise to shake lovers)

  • Well played … 30 percent of burger connoisseurs surveyed prefer their burger cooked medium-well – with a slight pink center

Orlando, Fla. – Hard Rock International – owner of one of the world’s most recognized and iconic brands – announces today it has entered into a long-term agreement with New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC. As part of this agreement, Hard Rock will make an equity investment in New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC, which extends to any projected future developments at the racetrack.

Hard Rock International has a long standing relationship and strong fan base in the state of New Jersey and we will continue to strengthen our presence through this collaboration with New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC,” said Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International. “Our company welcomes this opportunity and looks forward to leveraging our brand to potentially expand the region’s gaming offerings and sports betting through this alliance. We also believe this investment would sit comfortably alongside potential projects in the future, such as Atlantic City, in the event we establish a viable long-term entry plan for the market.

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, from some of the most important guitars in music history to some of the most incredible outfits ever to grace a rock star or stage. On any given day, visit any Hard Rock location around the world, and you will see some of these pieces of history yourself. Whether they transport you to a time in your own past, triggering memories of glory days, or they teach you something you never knew about one of your favorite artists, Hard Rock's memorabilia collection has been viewed by millions over the years.

Now, Hard Rock is bringing even more memorabilia to Hard Rocks all over the world, with the Treasures Of The Hard Rock tour. Actually, we should say "tours," as three separate tours will criss-cross both the U.S. and Europe. The U.S. tours will highlight two different themes: those artists who left us in their prime, leaving behind catalogs of incredible music, and musicians whose philanthropic work rivals their music.

Hard Rock’s Ambassadors Of Rock Tour is set to rock 2010! Over the last four years we've featured the likes of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Police, Neil Young, Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, The Who, The Killers, Fleet Foxes, Ben Harper & Relentless7, KT Tunstall, All-American Rejects, Willie Nelson, DMC, John Mayer, Starsailor, Muse, Sheryl Crow, The Wailers, Godsmack, Staind, Panic At The Disco and many more.

This year will prove to be just as amazing, beginning with Hard Rock Calling in London's Hyde Park from June 25-27. This year sees Pearl Jam headlining on Friday, June 25, with a lot more bands yet to be announced for London and all of the other tour stops.

The best part is you can see it in person as part of our Ambassadors Of Rock Sweepstakes, where you can win trips around the world. Not only can you win a trip to London, but the you can win 3(!) more trips to the Ambassadors Of Rock tour stops of your choice. Not bad for just entering your name in a sweepstakes.

Hard Rock and Shakira have teamed up to create the newest Artist Spotlight Series, in support of her Pies Descalzos Foundation, whose main focus is on aid through education. The Shakira Artist Spotlight program features a T-shirt designed by Shakira and a limited-edition bracelet inspired by Shakira. 15% of the retail price from the Shakira Artist Spotlight T-Shirt and 100% of the profits from the Shakira Artist Spotlight Bracelet will go to the displaced children of Colombia via Pies Descalzos Foundation. Hard Rock is honored to help this talented humanitarian give back to the country she loves.

Orlando, Fla., February 1, 2010 – Beginning in February 2010, with the launch of Hard Rock International’s Shakira Artist Spotlight T-Shirt and Bracelet, a “She Wolf” won’t be the only thing in every Shakira fan’s closet. This limited-edition merchandise will benefit Shakira’s Fundación Pies Descalzos, an organization devoted to finding and providing opportunities for children who are victims of violence in Colombia.

“I’m proud and excited to continue my partnership with Hard Rock International through the Artist Spotlight program,” said Shakira.  “With the launch of the Shakira Artist Spotlight T-Shirt, I hope to increase international awareness and support for the Fundación Pies Descalzos, an organization that is extremely close to my heart.”  

In 1997, Shakira created Fundación Pies Descalzos, which promotes education and strives to provide help for some of the basic needs of Colombian children. As a result of her efforts, Shakira was nominated a UNICEF ambassador – the youngest world representative of this organization.

We were thrilled by the outstanding response to Hard Rock’s Shakira Signature Series T-shirt, launched in 2007, and are excited to continue our relationship with Shakira for her Artist Spotlight T-Shirt,” said Hamish Dodds, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hard Rock International.  “We look forward to our ongoing work with Shakira and her Fundación Pies Descalzos, helping to improve the quality of life for the children in Shakira’s home country of Colombia.

Hard Rock’s Shakira Artist Spotlight T-Shirt and Bracelet will be sold online at www.hardrock.com, as well as at select Hard Rock properties worldwide:

  • Shakira Artist Spotlight T-Shirt – Designed by Shakira, this limited-edition T-Shirt features two angels sitting on an amplifier with a pink guitar in between them and set on the background of a large purple heart. The city-specific design is set on a black T-Shirt and is available exclusively in women’s sizes (S-XL).  15% of the retail price will benefit Fundación Pies Descalzos. ($26)
  • Shakira Artist Spotlight Bracelet – Inspired by Shakira, this limited-edition bracelet features Chakira beads with custom clasps. All of the proceeds from the Artist Spotlight bracelet will benefit Fundación Pies Descalzos. ($12)

Since it was established in 1971, Hard Rock has been committed to a wide variety of philanthropic causes and activities around the world.  With the success of Shakira’s Signature Series T-shirt, Hard Rock has once again partnered with the undisputed “Reina of International Pop” to create the brand’s second Artist Spotlight T-Shirt and Bracelet. As with the Signature Series program, the Artist Spotlight program features the work of noted artists and performers and contributes to global and humanitarian causes worldwide.
