More than 25 years ago, Hard Rock developed the concept of partnering with world-renowned musicians and bands to create imaginative designs that are converted into limited-edition merchandise and sold at Hard Rock properties worldwide. A portion of the retail price from the sale of the merchandise benefits the artist’s preferred charity. Music icons including Bruce Springsteen, Pitbull, Rihanna, Imagine Dragons, U2, KISS, Eric Clapton, The Who, Jon Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, Shakira and Ringo Starr have all been part of Hard Rock’s Signature Series and Artist Spotlight programs, which have raised millions of dollars for charitable causes worldwide.
