Hard Rock International acquired Elvis Presley’s 24-karat gold leaf plated 1928 Kimball Piano Company Grand Piano in 2015 as its 80,000th piece of memorabilia. The piano was originally purchased in 1955 by Presley as a gift for his mother, Gladys. Following her death in 1958, the piano was placed in storage, then resurrected by Elvis’ wife Priscilla Presley in 1968 in celebration of their first anniversary, when the gold leaf finish was added. The piano will be on permanent display in the Grand Entrance of the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa.
Continuing to elevate its music and entertainment programming, a Hard Rock Event Center with seating for 2,000 guests is set to open on the second level of the casino complex. A companion 17,000-square-foot grand ballroom will host conventions, trade shows, private events, large-scale poker tournaments and concerts, including 60 major entertainment acts each year.
