New “Come Together” Campaign
Hard Rock is showcasing how its global experience for music, entertainment, travel and gaming fans is more inviting than ever for Unity members and guests alike with a multi-million-dollar “Come Together” campaign that begins today. At the center is a 60-second spot where the celebrities journey through multiple Hard Rock locations around the world, with a new vista through every open door.

Over the soundtrack of his exclusive recording of “Come Together,” Noah Kahan strolls through the sun-filled sophisticated Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico, as John Legend dresses in the Hard Rock Hotel New York Rock Star Suite then cruises through the stunning lobby and rooftop overlooking Manhattan. At the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood in South Florida, Shakira arrives in style and walks the flagship property ending at a dazzling Guitar Hotel Pool party, while brand ambassador Lionel Messi greets team members and guests – including a young fan sporting his jersey – at the Hard Rock Cafe where his namesake items grace the menu.

“I’m so honored to be part of this Hard Rock effort and to have the opportunity to record my take on one of the greatest songs ever; I can’t wait for fans to hear it in the campaign,” said Noah Kahan, who has performed at Hard Rock Hotel New York. “Filming at their beautiful Riviera Maya resort’s beach was drop dead gorgeous and a total blast, and everyone on site made our time so enjoyable.”

“Whether I’m celebrating an album release party in Hollywood, Florida, enjoying a day off, or performing at a Hard Rock venue, I can always count on Hard Rock to create and host a memorable night,” said Shakira. “I hope the new campaign inspires fans to explore new places, foods and sounds around the world.”

“I love being a part of the Hard Rock family and have enjoyed bringing my namesake items to their Cafes and seeing shows with my family, so I was excited to be in this terrific ‘Come Together’ campaign,” said Leo Messi. “Now, my fans can earn and redeem Unity by Hard Rock points anytime they dine, stay or play at participating Hard Rock locations, whether it’s at my home turf in South Florida or other locations around the world.”

Hard Rock’s campaign includes 60- and 30-second spots that will appear in select local markets, on streaming, search, OLV, social and display digital channels and across Hard Rock locations globally.
