The Allman Brothers Band to Headline Hard Rock’s 2009 “Ambassadors of Rock” Tour at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Hard Rock International is bringing its worldwide Ambassadors of Rock Tour to Hollywood. On Oct. 20, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members The Allman Brothers Band will perform at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as part of Hard Rock’s 2009 Ambassadors of Rock Tour, a global concert series featuring top artists and bands.  Honoring the brand’s “Love All, Serve All” creed, Hard Rock will make a donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Fl, a family-centered care facility designed to promote and support a mutually beneficial partnership between families and healthcare professionals in caring for children. Tickets for the show are on sale now.

Globally known for classics such as “Midnight Rider” and “Melissa,” and nicknamed as the “principle architects of Southern Rock,” The Allman Brothers Band from Macon, Georgia has become one of the most respected rock acts of their era.  For the first half of the 1970s, the Allman Brothers Band was the most influential rock group in America, redefining rock music and its boundaries.  40 years later, with eleven gold and five platinum albums, the band continues to blend strains of Southern music – blues, R&B, country, jazz, and gospel – into a soothing, jam-oriented style that is still followed by legions of fans today. In 2008, the band received Billboard’s Legend of Live Award, recognizing “a touring professional who has had a significant and lasting impact on the concert industry.”

“As part of our worldwide Ambassadors of Rock Tour, we are very excited to bring one of the country’s most esteemed rock bands to Hollywood,” said Hamish Dodds, President and CEO, Hard Rock International.  “For years, The Allman Brothers have rocked America with their soulful voice and we are proud to add The Allman Brothers Band to our Ambassadors of Rock Tour lineup.”

Hard Rock Café – Hollywood will host a reception and auction on October 20 of music memorabilia and signed AOR guitars by the Allman Brothers Band. The auction and reception is an invitation only event.  “We are thrilled that Hard Rock has selected the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital as its of choice for the 2009 Ambassadors of Rock tour stop in Hollywood, Florida,” said Don Eachus, Director of Development, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital/Memorial Health Care. “This generous donation will help treat some of the most complex and critical medical conditions for the children at our hospital.”
