Hard Rock Cafe to pay tribute to Freddie Mercury

Hard Rock Cafe is to pay tribute to the late Freddie Mercury.

On September 5, staff at the chain's restaurants across Europe are invited to break-free of their usual uniform and don catsuits and fake moustaches for the Freddie For A Day campaign to mark what would have been his 70th birthday.

Marc Carey, director of European Marketing for Hard Rock International, said: "Hard Rock International is delighted to work alongside Queen and The Mercury Phoenix Trust on their annual Freddie For A Day.

"Each cafe throughout Europe will be encouraging local Freddie fans to visit dressed up as the icon and to help raise funds for this great cause."

The event will also raise funds and awareness for the Mercury Phoenix Trust - which is in its sixth year - and the fight against AIDS and HIV.

Queen music will play throughout the day, there will be an exclusive Freddie-themed menu, cocktails and a live band will perform songs from 6pm to 11pm.

Entry is £7 for fan club members, including a moustache and raffle entry, and £10 for non-fan club members.

All ticket proceeds contributing to the Mercury Pheonix Trust.

Hard Rock Cafe is located at 150 Old Park Ln, London W1K 1QZ. All ages welcome.
