Have You Heard?

Glasgow is to get its first Hard Rock Cafe, as Hard Rock International revealed it has secured premises in the former Athenaeum Theatre in Buchanan Street. The new restaurant and bar will open in November and will have 170 covers. It will also have a live music area, and a ‘rock shop’. As with the other Hard Rock Cafe venues, Glasgow’s will display memorabilia from rock and roll history including a green two-piece suit worn by The Who’s Pete Townsend in the 1975 hit film Tommy, an artist’s paint palette used by Scottish-born fifth Beatle Stuart Sutcliffe when he was at Liverpool College of Art and a sports tie worn by guitarist Eric Clapton. Hamish Dodds, president and CEO, Hard Rock International said, “As a proud native of Scotland, I couldn’t be more pleased that our world-famous Hard Rock brand will be calling Glasgow home.”
