Let’s get ready to Freddie! Hard Rock International is kicking off its annual celebration of the life and music of the legendary Freddie Mercury by hosting “Freddie for a Week” from Thursday, September 5, 2019 – Freddie Mercury’s birthday – through Thursday, September 12, 2019.
In honor of the iconic frontman, Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas will be rocking in Freddie’s honor with Freddie-themed events, a limited-time milkshake and exclusive merchandise that benefits The Mercury Phoenix Trust, a UK charity created in memory of Freddie Mercury by Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor together with their manager Jim Beach to support the global fight against HIV/AIDS.
Fans who head to Hard Rock to celebrate “Freddie for a Week” can dig into a Freddie’s Mustache Milkshake, which combines bourbon and dark rum with vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate sauce before being topped with white chocolate whipped cream and an iconic chocolate brownie mustache. The Instagram-worthy milkshake will also be available in a non-alcoholic version for fans of all ages to enjoy. Those looking to celebrate while wearing Freddie-inspired merchandise can stop by the Cafe’s Rock Shop or visit https://shop.hardrock.com to purchase limited-edition t-shirts and a pin featuring an iconic image of Freddie on stage.
“We are excited to honor Freddie Mercury’s memory as a legendary singer, songwriter and record producer by hosting ‘Freddie for a Week’ at Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas,” said Jeremy Sanborn, General Manager at Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas. “Freddie for a Week” provides a unique opportunity for fans to come out to the Cafe and celebrate the iconic life and music of Freddie Mercury with us, while supporting The Mercury Phoenix Trust.”
