Would you expect any less? Of course not. If there's one thing we've learned and experienced and come to know very well over the years, it's that Hard Rock knows how to throw a party, no matter where in the world that party might be. Whether it's Bali or Chicago, Florence or St. Maarten, we like to have fun. Combine that with excellent food, great music, and incredible people and you have yourself one heck of a party! This is a central tenet of Hard Rock. Believe it.

The one-and-only Mr. Alice Cooper held court at the newly opened Hard Rock Cafe Sydney recently. Was he just hanging out to have a burger and a beer? Was he checking out the Jimi Hendrix memorabilia? Did we dream it? If we did, we never want that dream to end because Alice rocks.

The real reason for Mr. Cooper's awesome presence was the release of his new album Welcome 2 My Nightmare. In case you don't know, the 2 refers to the fact that this new album is a sequel of sorts to his 1975 masterpiece Welcome To My Nightmare.
