Hard Rock Cafe Seattle
The Seattle Tour of Music
Seattle City of Music
In partnership with the Seattle Office of Film + Music and the Seattle Music Commission, the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle will serve as the City of Music’s Rock Ambassador. Now visitors can pick up a brochure at the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle’s Rock Shop that introduces some of the city’s top live music venues. Additionally, visitors can book The Seattle Tour of Music at the cafe. Hosted by White Moustache Urban Adventure Company, the two-hour tour takes guests through the streets of Seattle to see where legends created the music that made our city famous. Featured musicians include Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Heart, Pearl Jam, Ray Charles, and more. At the end of the tour, guests will return to the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle and view memorabilia specific to the Seattle music scene. “We love that people who come to the Hard Rock CafĂ© will learn about Seattle’s history of music before going to see history in the making at our live-music venues,” said Mayor Mike McGinn. The City of Music Initiative was conceived in October 2008, its purpose being to honor Seattle’s rich music history, to celebrate its ongoing importance to the city’s economy and culture, and to further enhance Seattle’s renowned music culture. The initiative is led by the 21-member Seattle Music Commission and strives to grow Seattle as a city of musicians, live music, and music business by creating action that enhances the climate for the music industry.
