Elvis, Beatles memorabilia items on display at Hard Rock
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Elvis Presley’s Rolls Royce, the suits the Beatles wore on their first tour of America, Bruce Springsteen’s sleeveless faded denim jacket and colorful headband, and Michael Jackson’s famous glove are among the items of music memorabilia on display at Atlantic City’s new Hard Rock casino.
There are outfits worn by Lady Gaga, Cher, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and shoes from Elton John, Buddy Holly and Gene Simmons of Kiss — if dragon-scale boots count as shoes.
Guitars in all shapes, sizes and colors, including ones played by Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Slash, are there, too.
Just about the only thing this casino doesn’t have is the Rolling Stones’ “Tumbling Dice.”
When the Hard Rock opened June 28 in what used to be the Trump Taj Mahal, the casino opened in 1990 by Donald Trump, it brought with it a large display of items from what it calls the world’s largest collection of music memorabilia.
